If you’re anything like me, deciding where to eat in Glasgow is never just about the food—it’s also about finding a spot where your four-legged pal is welcomed with open paws. 

Fortunately, Glasgow is one of those cities that doesn’t just tolerate pups; it celebrates them! So I’d say you keep on reading because I’ve got a list of the best dog-friendly restaurants our city has to offer.

Brel allows your furry friend to bask in its warm, welcoming atmosphere, both indoors and outdoors. They’re also welcome to chill and show off their cute little faces inside, too.

One of the favourite spots must be their beer garden—spacious, airy, and generally a winning combo of your best friend and a fantastic Belgian Blonde. And, of course, it goes without saying that there is always a fresh bowl of water on hand for your pooch.

Pro tip: Brel’s beer garden isn’t just big – it’s also heated so you can still chill there with your pooch even during winter. Oh, and don’t miss out on their Moules Tuesday promo—moules-frites for under a tenner!

The Left Bank is a trendy spot in the West End known for its fresh, diverse menu, and, you guessed it—pooch friendliness. What’s more, it has a modish, chilled-out vibe, coupled with plenty of room for your puppy to relax and make some new friends.

Drake’s love for craft beer, a laid-back vibe, and pub grub that’s ridiculously good is just part of the charm. Because beyond that, they also love dogs, and by that, I mean they genuinely welcome them with open arms, inside and on the heated patio!

This place will whip up some dog-friendly foods from the kitchen and, of course, keep those water bowls filled to the brim. A leash is absolutely necessary, but beyond that, your pup can roam around, sniffing all the mysterious pub smells to their heart’s content.

Inn Deep offers fantastic views, making it a picturesque spot for you and your four-legged friend. The quirky, underground setting provides plenty of space inside for dogs, and it has a lovely patio where they’re also free to get cosy.

Now, while there’s no specific doggy menu, the friendly staff never hesitates to spoil your pet with dog biscuits. The only rule here is that dogs need to be on a lead, but given that you’re right next to a river, it seems like a pretty reasonable request to me.

Pro tip: Inn Deep is a proud patron of local independent breweries, so don’t forget to try their rotating selection of craft beers. 

When it comes to parking, there’s metered parking close by, but it can fill up fast—especially on sunny days when that outdoor patio is looking particularly tempting.

Pro tip: Don’t forget to look out for Bungo’s regular event listings—they host some cracking foodie events. For parking, it’s better to have some coins handy for the film-style parking meters in the neighbourhood.

The 78 vegan bar and restaurant offers a treat for your taste buds (try their cauliflower wings!) while making sure your pooch feels just as embraced. With its sprawling seating arrangements—from comfy couches to airy spaces—there’s enough for the dogs.

The staff always have water bowls ready to quench your pup’s thirst, and they’re quick to offer a pet or some treats. The 78’s ground rules are pretty simple: dogs on leashes, paws off the furniture, and best behaviour on display.

Pro tip: They often have quiet evenings during the week, making it the ideal time to bring your dog along without the worry of a crowded space. And as a bonus, the neighbourhood is great for a post-dinner stroll, so your pup can walk off those treats.
