Dog Friendly Vegan London

Looking for somewhere dog-friendly and vegan in London? No problem! Benito* and I have you covered!

*Unfortunately Benito’s not pictured above because he tends to move too fast in cafes for me to capture his image but he is pictured below.

Since I moved back to London last year, I’ve been taking my vegan dog, Benito, to loads of vegan events, markets, meals and more. And I’ve been curating a big list of dog-friendly vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and cafes.

A lot of independent pubs and many small, indie coffee shops are dog-friendly, but restaurants are another matter. A lot of restaurants won’t let you bring your dog, but more and more are starting to allow our four-legged friends to join us for dinner. The good news is most vegan restaurants are dog-friendly! Makes sense, right?

I’ve divided the dog-friendly vegan London restaurants and cafes by area below but first I wanted to tell you my four favourite places to go with my dog in London!

V+ = Vegan
V = Vegetarian with vegan options
VF = Vegan friendly (omni restaurant/cafe with vegan options)


Below you’ll find a list of dog-friendly vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants, cafes and shops that I’ve personally visited with my dog and can verify are dog friendly (or at least were at the time of visit!). It’s always best to phone ahead just to be sure you can bring your dog, or have a backup place in mind. For ease, I’ve divided the restaurants by area of London.

Mildred’s (V)
A classic London vegetarian institution (get the vegan burger) and dog-friendly too, with locations in Soho, Kings Cross, Camden and Dalston. One of the first restaurants I took Benito to, because I was pretty much coaxed into it by Mildred’s staff who wanted to play with him! I had planned to get takeaway but after one member of staff spotted him, she practically begged me to sit down at a table and eat in so she could see more of Benito.
Multiple locations:
Soho: 45 Lexington St, Soho, London W1F 9AN
Kings Cross: 200 Pentonville Rd, Kings Cross, London N1 9JP

Kin Cafe (V)
This vegetarian cafe in Fitzrovia has the usual coffee shop fare of coffee, matcha lattes and tea, plus salads and a rotating menu of lunch specials. They are also dog friendly! Vegan brrunch can be hard to come by, even in the Big Smoke, so make sure to note that Kin also offer Saturday brunch, including vegan pancakes. Yum.

I haven’t been here (yet!), but I’ve been assured it’s exceedingly dog-friendly by many people (plus their website and Instagram features dog photos where they proclaim their dog-friendliness!).

Rabbit Hole Hair Parlour (V+)
You don’t have to leave Fido at home when you’re getting your hair done at this all-vegan hair salon. You can bring her along!

Not Dog Friendly

I’ve been really pleased by how dog friendly the vegan and vegetarian restaurants of London are! I’ve tried taking my dog into some non-veggie places when I was out and about with him and very few let him in, but the bulk of vegan places are dog-friendly. In fact, there are only two that I’ve come across so far that don’t allow dogs.

Calthorpe Project (no dogs allowed except assistance dogs)
This is the only place I’ve had a truly bad experience. I went to a meetup here and a few of us had asked the organiser, who spoke to a volunteer at the venue, who said we could bring dogs. The cafe is set at the back of a park. As I tried to make my way to the cafe, I was chased out of the park by a woman who shouted at me for bringing my dog in. Although I tried to explain that there must have been a misunderstanding, she was exceedingly rude. It ended up working out, because the meetup organiser spoke to the (vegan) volunteer from the centre who’d helped co-organise the event, and they let us come in just this one time. But unfortunately the whole experience of the extremely rude woman shouting at us left a bad taste in my mouth, which is a shame because I like the mission of the Calthorpe Project…

Dog-Friendly Bars, Clothes Shops, Hotels & More

Looking for some non-food recommendations? This cute little book, London for the Dogs, has a tonne more information! There’s a copy in Brill Cafe (a coffee shop featured in the book!) and it’s packed full of information (I keep forgetting to buy a copy!) about dog-friendly bars, cinema nights, clothing and furniture shops and much more. You can it here on Amazon for just £6.94.

Visiting London with your dog and looking for a place to stay? Drop me a line on [email protected] and I can recommend a few dog-friendly hotels and B&Bs for any budget.
