Never be in ruff company when you visit the best Sydney Dog Friendly Pubs
For some of us, we often find the company of our furry friends better than most humans out there. Not everyone shares the same sentiment, as dogs are not always welcome in Sydney establishments. With that in mind, we’ve complied a list of Sydney’s best dog friendly pubs so you can still hang with your four legged friend and be social at the same time. It’s all about pints and pooches in this guide so read on!
A true local favourite, The Erko is one of the best dog-friendly pubs Sydney has to offer. With an entire wall dedicated to polaroids of local doggos, expect to meet and greet plenty of furry friends during your visit. Whether you nab a table out front, pull up a stool in the main bar, or score a table in the beer garden, you’ll be treated to great brews, delicious pub grub and wagging tails galore.

The Beresford, Surry Hills
The large leafy courtyard at The Beresford in Surry Hills is dog friendly every day of the week. In the past, the pub has even opened its doors to everyone who wanted to strut their mutt and throw a doggie fashion show. If you and your doggie are a little more low key, settle down in the courtyard and order up a few beers and some good food. Find out more here.
The Golden Sheaf is an Eastern Suburbs institution. What young Eastie hasn’t spent hours of fun here? It only seems appropriate that you introduce the pub to your pup. The Sheaf has in recent years undergone some extensive renovations, revealing a new and improved beer garden that’s open for both humans and dogs to explore. Offering up entertainment most nights of the week, an evening at The Sheaf offers some solid bonding time with your mates and their furry shadows plus some top-notch sips and nibbles.

The Carrington, Surry Hills
Dogs are allowed everywhere throughout this iconic Surry Hills pub, so you can truly have a doggie dinner date with your pup anytime you please.

Sydney dog-friendly pubs don’t really get much better than that! Find out more here.
The Bucket List, Bondi Beach
While dogs aren’t allowed to cavort amongst the waves at Bondi Beach, at The Bucket List, you can give them the next best thing. Furry friends are allowed in the front terrace section of the bar (so long as they’re on a lead), giving you and your four-legged buddy the perfect view to enjoy over some fresh prawns and Coronas. While your dog delights in the view and befriends all the other dogs there, you’ll be able to relax and take in that chilled, beach vibe. Find out more here.
