The Owain Glyndwr is another dog-friendly pub in Anglesey that offers a relaxing, country-style retreat where you and the pooch can kick back, relax, and enjoy some homemade food in big portions without huge price tags.
Amazingly, everything on their menu can be made gluten-free if it isn’t already, and the locals are just as likely to fuss your pup as the staff are. It’s a steep walk to reach this brilliant pub, but well worth the trek.

The White Eagle came under new ownership last year and is going from strength to strength. It might come as a surprise that a gastropub of this calibre allows dogs inside, but four-legged family members are as welcome as anyone and they’re even given their own drinks and treats!
It’s best to book ahead as there are only a few dog-friendly tables available inside, but there’s plenty of room in the garden overlooking the bay.

Given the name, it’s no surprise The Inn at the Bay is conveniently close to the bay and you can “pup” in after a seaside stroll. There’s plenty of scrumptious seasonal delicacies on offer as well as typical pub grub.
Dogs are welcome in the garden and bar, just not the restaurant. I’m sure no one will mind though because wherever you sit you can still enjoy the quality food, cheerful service, and the dog will have a cuddle and a few treats from the staff.
Opening Times: Mon-Sat: 12:00-23:00 / Sun: 12:00-22:30

Dogs are welcome inside in the bar on the wooden floors at The Stag, and since it’s practically on top of the Traeth beaches, this traditional village pub is a good place to “pup” in after a seaside stroll.

Last but certainly not least, the Adelphi Vaults is one of the most well-reviewed pubs on the island and it’s clear why. Warm and welcoming inside, every single member of the family is received with cheer whether it’s a tiny tot, grumpy grandpa, or a four-legged friend!
