Excellent Dog friendly tearoom and field walks nearby, Leicestershire

Some pub opening times and dog rules are still changing. Please check your chosen pub is able to welcome you before making plans.


Thurlaston Garden Centre has a tearoom called Gardener's Rest. They have recently added an extension which is the most dog friendly place I have been to so far, plus there are walks in the fields opposite.

Food was great, and very welcoming cafe. We had breakfast with tea and coffee. Arthur had a sausage with gravy bones. The cakes looked fab!

The gift shop is lovely, and we met several other dogs out for breakfast and morning coffee as well.

Superb dog friendly cafe

We parked up and crossed over the road to wander a few fields, marked clearly with yellow posts. But never mind that.....the cafe! A new extension is sooooo dog friendly! Astro turf, free biscuits for dogs large and small. A photo opportunity. It’s a nice airy space too, decorated with character.
