When you think of Blackpool, you picture quintessential beach resort fun. Hot doughnuts along the prom, amusements, and of course, the iconic illuminations.

Thankfully, there are many dog-friendly pubs and restaurants in Blackpool for a stay at Marton Mere Holiday Park and nearby Fleetwood - ideal if you're staying at Cala Gran Holiday Park. When you’ve worked up an appetite having fun along the prom, head to one of Blackpool’s best pubs and restaurants - furry friends included! 

Lifeboat Inn

Lifeboat Inn

This traditional, family-run pub is just off the main seafront, within walking distance of top attractions like the Sea-Life Centre and Madame Tussauds. If you’re in the mood for proper pub grub for a reasonable price, this won’t disappoint! They’re more than happy for your pooch to join you, too. Choose from a wide range of beers, wines, and spirits to quench your thirst after a walk along the promenade. 

Soak up the sun on a warm day in the beer garden or find a cosy nook inside when the weather turns. You might be lucky enough to join in with one of their karaoke nights!

The Shovels, Marton Moss

Located by Blackpool Airport in Marton Moss, The Shovels is a classic, dog-friendly pub in Blackpool with a warm welcome for families and pooches. It’s got a fully accessible car park with plenty of wheelchair access indoors. The bar offers a selection of beers, refreshing lagers, wines, and a cracking selection of spirits. The menu’s a winner, too—think flame-grilled burgers, juicy steaks, and BBQ wings. Enjoy your meal in the outdoor garden or dine in. 

For sport-lovers, relax and watch the footy on the big screen. If live entertainment’s more your thing, there are often bands playing, quiz nights, and karaoke!

The Gynn

The Gynn

This pub and restaurant offers the best of both worlds - delicious pub grub and a wide selection of drinks. For sunny days and warm nights, lounge outside in the large patio garden. Inside, there’s a traditional, cosy interior to relax with your meal. You’ll be pleased to know that dogs are allowed anywhere inside the pub - they’ll be greeted with fresh water and snacks on arrival. You can’t get more welcoming than that! 

Find The Gynn in Gynn’s Square by the promenade.

Taylor’s Fish and Chips

Taylor's has been going strong since 1910, dishing out top-notch traditional fish and chips. It's a pet-friendly spot where you can sit in or grab a takeaway. Inside, the place has a charming interior, too, not your usual fish and chip joint vibe.  

Expect freshly cooked fish in generous portions, perfect for refuelling after a stroll along the promenade or checking out Blackpool's sights. They've got gluten-free options too—and leave room for dessert!

The Little Black Pug

The Little Black Pug

As the name suggests, this is a cracking pub that’s fully dog-friendly. They've got loads of free live entertainment throughout the day and night, like DJs and bands. Inside, you’ve got a grand bar that has a cool retro vibe, plus there's a small beer garden for catching some rays on those rare sunny days!  

They've got a wide selection of drinks, especially gin, whiskey, and vodka. There’s no food service, but who needs it when there's plenty of space for dancing, drinking, and having a laugh with your furry friend? You'll find it on Talbot Road, just a stone's throw from the main beach. If you’re peckish, you can grab a bite to eat along the prom.

The Steamer, Fleetwood

If you’re after a classic-meets-modern pub with real ales on tap, visit the Steamer. It’s the oldest pub in town, nestled in Fleetwood, right by the River Wyre. It has a wide selection of beers and other drinks to quench your thirst after a good walk along Dock Street. Four-legged friends are welcome to join you! 

For lunch and dinner, there’s traditional fare like fish and chips and steak and ale pie, with options for vegans, veggies, and gluten-free guests. Fancy a quick game of 501? There’s a dartboard and TVs showing the latest sports, so you can catch a game or two while dining in. 

The Strawberry Gardens Pub and Bistro, Fleetwood

This is a friendly, cheerful place to grab a few drinks or relax with something to eat. It has a fully stocked bar with a bunch of ever-changing cask ales, continental lagers, wines, and top-shelf spirits. They've also got low and no alcohol options if that's your thing. When it comes to food, there’s a mix of classic pub fare and gourmet dishes whipped up by chefs with a fine dining background - all at reasonable prices. Dogs are welcomed with open arms! 

Eat anywhere in the pub, even at the bar, and you can reserve a table or just turn up spontaneously. There’s the typical pub classics like scampi and chips and steak pie, plus some upmarket dishes including crab and leek croquettes. No pub would be complete without a classic Sunday roast, with a veggie option too!
