Bungay castle walk and dog-friendly pub, Suffolk

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


We saw on the map that Bungay had a castle. So, expecting a ruin surrounded by parkland for Jem's dog walk we decided to take a bit of a town break here and hoped for a dog-friendly place for lunch too. 
The Castle itself is dog walk lite, and we think you can see most of the unimpressive castle itself very nicely from the side. Otherwise there's an entry charge to go in, through the Jesters Cafe. We thought this was a bit cheeky and headed for the dog-friendly Fleece Inn instead.


P&D car park in the middle of the one-way system. The Fleece has its own large car park behind the pub.

Pub or Cafe Address

St Marys Street, Bungay, NR35 1AX

For full menu information, allergens, specials, prices and reservations please check their website.

Dog Rules

Well-behaved dogs on leads welcome in the bar, lounge and snug at the Fleece. Dog treats available.



Not really much for dogs here, but there is a green space outside the perimeter fencing of the castle. You can reach this by going down the path to the left of Jesters. You'll also find an information board.  Many thanks to DwD member Keith who posted a link to "dog-friendly Bungay" with walks.

Dog walks in Bungay

I am sorry that you didn't find anywhere to walk your dog in Bungay- I have attached a link to 3 circular walks of varying lengths that all finish at a dog friendly cafe. I hope that if you visit Bungay again you will find this useful
