ERNEST CAFÉ BAR
Recharge your batteries at Ernest – a cute café bar in Ouseburn, Newcastle. Set up and run by artists, makers and designers, Ernest’s flair is beyond compare. It’s an uber cool spot to hang out with your pooch – and the ideal place to rest those legs after strolling the Quayside. Watch the world go by as you sit at the top of the Ouseburn Valley in a creative hub where you can enjoy food, drink, music and art with your pup in tow.
THE JOINER’S SHOP
A warm and inviting coffee house and kitchen in the quaint little village of Ingleby Cross, at the foot of the North York Moors. Pop on your walking boots and let your pooch off the lead for a leaf-crunching stroll through the national park, before swinging by this sweet spot for a coffee, cake or a bite to eat. Brought to you by the team behind Rounton Coffee, this flagship location serves up everything that Rounton Coffee stands for – with locally-sourced, seasonal food thrown in for good measure. Alfie’s favourite!
Allard’s Lounge is at the beating heart of Tynemouth’s social scene – perfect for a pooch-friendly pitstop post beach walk. Dust off those sandy paws and take some time out to enjoy a glass of wine over tapas.
TEA WITH ALICE
A small, independent café in Darlington, bursting with beautiful cakes, and serving foodies and their furry-friends from breakfast through to dinner. This colourful, dog-friendly hangout is an instant mood-booster, serving sweet and savoury treats for humans and hounds alike. A must-try this season.
