Hi I've been taking my dog to a doggie diner in Blackhall. He's actually enjoying it considering he's not usually keen on public places. Might have something to do with the menu for dogs? grin

Do you take your dog/s anywhere that caters for them? I'd like to take him to another one. There's lots of dog friendly places in Whitby and Robin hoods bay where we often go but don't tend to take the dog.

I don't have a dog, but often see people sat outside Esquires in Durham with their pet pooches - right next to Framwellgate bridge, so a nice spot, if a little busy at peak times. Better on a school day, mind, if he's not keen on lots of passing feet.

Or a Sunday, maybe - Durham city centre is full of dog walkers on a Sunday!

I love Durham city. Might try him through there. I have a feeling you can take dogs in the gardens at Crook hall? Just came to me!

Just checked website can't see anything about allowing dogs.

That's good. I don't go that far though but good to know there are others smile

You can take dogs into the cafe at Causey Arch. Does lovely pie!

Also the garden centre off the A167 at Pity Me. X

Thanks. I love pies.

The one we go to in blackhall has nice fruit pie. Cakes are delicious apparently but I'm usually more into savoury.

Anyone else like to add a place?

Just drove through newton Hall, this evening, and there's a Canine Cafe there! Remembered this thread, as we passed. I think it's the same chain as yours in Blackhall. Not the nicest of locations in an arcade of shops next to a big tacky pub, but not far from the nature reserve and some really good dog walks beyond the nature reserve - you can walk into the centre of Durham from there, past fields of wheat grin (and passing Crook Hall)

In fact, if you and your dog love long walks, you could park up at Walkergate o The sands, walk to the cafe and refresh yourselves, then either walk back again or catch the 64 back into town!

Just noticed this listed for the centre of stockton when I was looking up the Newton Hall cafe

There's a dog-walking group I found recently, Motley Mutt Mooches, who get together for walks around Teesside and many of their walks end at a dog-friendly cafe. I'm away at the moment but planning to join when I get back home as they do walks in some lovely places. They seem a friendly bunch, too.

I found them on, but I think they have a Facebook page - have a look and see what you think. (It's only £5 a year to join the group.)

I can vouch for Wags n Whiskers. Nice little cafe, friendly staff and decent food for both humans and dogs.

We go to Newton hall a lot as family live there. I knew a doggie diner had opened in Durham but didn't realise it was there.
