DOG FRIENDLY RETFORD
Some Great Dog Friendly Spaces and Places Near Little Oak
I started to compile a list of pubs that were dog friendly in Retford. We love dogs but don’t have one at the moment, so we posted on the Retford Facebook page for advice. Basically the answer is ‘ALL of them!’ except the Weatherspoons pub. Most of the local village pubs are too, we’re great dog lovers hereabouts!
Here again the Retford Facebook page told us MOST of them! Here’s a list which I suspect is not definitive!
The Baytree Cafe by the canal, one of my favourites but not open at night. https://m.facebook.com/Bay-Tree-Retford-829292120483822
The Barrister's Book Chamber - https://barristersbookchamber.com/
