6 dog-friendly restaurants in Dundee to dine out with your four-legged friends

With so many dog lovers in the area it’s no surprise that many venues have now made their premises dog-friendly to encourage customers to visit with their pooches.

And while we all love having our loved ones join us for a meal, it can be tricky to know exactly where the best venues are to take your dog to.

What better way to enjoy the sun than with a long walk followed by some breakfast, lunch or dinner in a local café or restaurant?

Below are some of the Food and Drink Team’s recommended places where you can relax and dine out alongside your furry friends.

The Bach

New Zealand-inspired restaurant, The Bach, is located in the city centre and offers an all day brunch menu for customers to enjoy from 9am to 4pm.

Types of dishes include bao buns, loaded fries, burgers, pancakes and French toast with many of their choices also being gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian.
