Dog Friendly Trail

Dog Friendly Trail

We’re a country city, so it’s no surprise that plenty of businesses in Hereford are happy to welcome your four-legged companions.

The city is full of dog-lovers and we are too, so we have put together a suggested route for visitors planning a dog friendly day out in Hereford. 

A dog-friendly day out



Start your day with breakfast at Sensory & Rye. This urban eatery offers a stunning food menu and artisanal coffee that you can enjoy with your pooch by your side. In summer, the outside terrace is ideal for soaking up the morning sun.

Walking by the Wye

Stretch your legs after breakfast with a walk by the River Wye. Head to Castle Green, a lovely open space on what was the site of Hereford’s castle, before walking over the picturesque Victoria Bridge toward Bishop’s Meadow on the far side of the river. From here you can take in the views of Hereford Cathedral, the Bishop’s Palace and more. When you’re ready for a coffee, pop over the Old Bridge to go back into town.

Coffee & Cake

Over the Old Bridge and nestled on the bank of the river is The Left Bank Village, home to the quirky De Koffie Pot. This ultra-cool café-bar is the perfect stop for you and your dog to warm up with a hot drink inside on chilly days, or bask in the sunshine on their terrace in summer.


If you’ve not been tempted by a cake at De Koffie Pot, then your next stop should be Church Street for lunch; walk up the historic Gwynne Street and through the Cathedral Green to find it. You will be spoilt for choice with dog-friendly dining options – try Polly's No.10 for light lunches or visit The Lichfield Vaults if you fancy treating yourself to a meal with a pint of real ale. Oh, and make sure you stop by The Little Deli to pick up an tasty coffee for you and dog treat for your four-legged companion!


After lunch, head down Church Street towards Hereford High Town and the Old Market for a little retail therapy. You’ll find a great range of shops who are happy for your dog to join you - from big names, like Waterstones and FatFace, to independent brands like Fox & Mabel and Home & Country Store.


If you’re not too tired after a busy day exploring the city with your pooch, then how about dinner? Head to The Imperial on Widemarsh Street - they're dog-friendly inside and out and have a great range of tasty meals on their menu.
