We are taking Harley to Pembrokeshire on holiday in a few weeks time. We usually eat out a few times when we are away - not usually anywhere formal, just pubs and cafes. We can't leave the Harlster in the house we are staying in, and won't leave him in the car, so are we going to be able to find anywhere he can come with us? I've tried 'dog-friendly Britain' but it only lists one pub a bit of a drive from where we are staying.
I'd be very surprised if most pubs in that kind of area aren't dog friendly, or semi dog-friendly either way - worth asking the proprietors or making a few phone calls beforehand?. I'd make sure you have enough warm clothes and maybe a picnic blanket (for you or Harley!) so you can eat in the pub garden if needs be in the evening ,take a chew toy if that will help him settle, and just chance it a bit!
Most pubs with gardens are OK with dogs in my experience - certainly the ones that don't allow them would be in the minority, so you should be OK as long as the weather is fine....
When we've occasionally been caught out by sudden rain during a pub meal with the dog and we've had to move inside without him, we've just had to resort to leaving him in the car, parked as close as possible, and checking on him regularly - but best not to do that, as you do hear of horror stories about dogs being stolen from cars.
Have you checked out restrictions on beaches? Wales is better than Cornwall, I think, but some beaches may not allow dogs in the summer.
we have been holidaying with out dogs in pembs for the last 13yrs or so. it is very dog friendly. in general the smaller towns are more dog friendly. most beaches allow dogs (with the exception of tenby). if you want to say, or pm me, whereabouts in pembs you are going i may be able to give more specific advice
