Dog Rules

Dogs are always welcome at the outside tables. Taking them inside is a bit variable so be prepared for the great outdoors.



Turn left out of the pub and follow the towpath along the River Lagan. This is a great place for walking the dog, with plenty of spots where Fido can get into the water for a refreshing swim. The paths are well maintained and you do have to share it with cyclists. The towpath runs on both sides of the river, but we chose to stay on the pub side. If you go far enough, you can cross the river at a bridge and head into Belvoir Park Forest. Head back to the Lock Keepers Inn when ready, maybe on the opposite side of the river.
