Dogs In The Workplace | 5 Dog-Friendly Places Across London For After Work Dinner

In the final instalment of our dog-friendly spots to wrap about your working day, we share five places across London for you and your dog to round off Bring Your Dog To Work Day with dinner and/or drinks. Cheers! 

North London
Morty & Bob's

Morty & Bobs serves brunch, lunch, dinner and bar snacks. Open until ‘candlelight’ or 11pm, it’s a top spot for after work enjoyment with your dog. We first had the pleasure of enjoying the famous Morty & Bobs grilled cheese sandwiches, which get gourmet’d up with ingredients such as truffles and nduja salami, while we had our stall at Netil Market and it’s great to see them expand to have new premises in this cool new area of London. In addition to their love of cheese (they have monthly wine and grilled cheese tasting events), they also service interesting wines, cocktails and London Beers to help you celebrate your dog’s office debut!

East London
The Ace Hotel

Dare we say it but The Ace is pretty ace if you are a dog about town, as admiring eyes and cuddles await you as soon as your tails whisks through their doors. The Lobby, Café and restaurant are all dog-friendly and with casual seating, it's a relaxed place to enjoy after work cocktails and small plates with friends where your dog is welcome too. It does get busy and buzzy though, so be mindful if your dog gets a bit overwhelmed by fun-loving crowds.

West London
The Hummingbird Bakery
The Hummingbird Bakery

If you prefer to end the working week on a sugar high, this the stop for you. Located almost opposite South Kensington Station, The Hummingbird Bakery offers a full range of American-style baked treats and desserts including cupcakes, layer cakes, brownies, pies, cheesecakes and more, with vegan and gluten-free options too. Dogs are welcome and they also have branches in Islington, Notting Hill, Soho and Spitalfields too.

South London
Petitou 

Escape the post-work hustle and bustle of Clapham High Street at this light, airy and relaxed gastropub, serving a modern European brasserie menu, which prides itself on working with some of the best small producers the British Isles has to offer. Dogs are allowed to join you inside but there’s also a pretty walled garden that is a suntrap for the early evening glow and a heated and covered pergola to provide shelter should the weather turn.

63 Choumert Rd, Peckham, London SE15 4AR

Central London
La Goccia Covent Garden

La Goccia is an all-day dining restaurant, serving Italian inspired dishes, wood-fired pizzette and botanical cocktails. Part of the Petersham Nurseries group, La Goccia is the brand’s interpretation of the Italian aperitivo and small plates known as ‘cicchetti’. Incredibly dog-friendly, it’s a great place to welcome in the weekend with friends on two and four-legs before heading off home.

Fast forward to today and their business has grown into a thriving community café offering eat in and takeaway menus with dishes such as Huevos Rancheros and Marinated Courgette & Hummus sandwiches, as well as specialty coffee and tea, craft beer, boutique wine and cocktails. It's our go-to spot with George and Frank on days when we’re working from home.

Another foodie friend of Fetch & Follow, we met café owner Natasha when we both had stalls in our former home at Netil Market. We would flock to see her for her amazing juices and milk-based drinks. She now serves her delicious drinks and homemade, healthy all-day brunch, as well as morning coffee, fresh pastries and cakes from this lovely, friendly café on the Roman Road. With a superb relaxed atmosphere, dogs are very welcome, so give them a try one lunch. You won’t be disappointed.

A bright and quaint courtyard to discover in the Seven Dials area of London’s Covent Garden, you’ll find it through alleys off Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street. The home of Monty Python’s former studios (look up to see the Blue Plaque), it’s perfect place for midday mindfulness or to people watch and enjoy the bright side of life in the Yard’s colourful surroundings. With a seating area in the centre of the courtyard, bring your own lunch or take your pick from takeout pizza from Homeslice or fresh fayre from 26 Grains, followed by an afternoon treat of St John’s Bakery doughnuts and coffee from Jacob the Angel.

Dogs In The Workplace | 5 Dog-Friendly Places Across London For Breakfast

This Friday 21stJune is Bring Your Dog To Work Day – a nationwide event that encourages business from across the UK to welcome their employees’ dogs into the workplace for charity; this year All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia. As dog owners fortunate enough to spend our work life with our pets, we’re strong advocates for dogs in the workplace. Our dogs join us daily at our East London studio, creating a sense of calm, encouraging us to pause for a re-charge and are the friendliest of ‘receptionists’, so we endorse this annual event as a great opportunity for others to experience the benefits of dogs in the workplace or to hold a morning meeting.

So, whether your dog has scored a one-day pass for this special day or is a regular four-legged fixture for your colleagues and peers, this week we share our series of dog-friendly places in London to wrap around your working day. Here are five spots across London where you and your dog can grab brews and breakfast en route to work.

North London
Wood Street Coffee

Word Street Coffee

Kick start your day with a caffeine fix at this speciality coffee roasters. A short walk away from Tottenham Marshes, they’re perfectly situated to visit after a pre-work run around for your dog. Opening at 8.30am for coffee and pastries, with their antipodean menu focussed kitchen open from 9.30am, dogs are (very) welcome and there’s plugs for laptops if you get caught short or need to do some work quickly on the way to work.

Blackhorse Workshop 1-2 Sutherland Rd Path, London E17 6BX

East London
Hackney Coffee
Hackney Coffee

100% Fetch & Follow approved, it’s a mere minute away from our studio, so you might catch us having morning meetings there. Open from 7am for early birds, the coffee is delicious, the staff make a huge fuss of dogs and the seating area is really spacious, so should you want a bit of quiet time with your coffee and canine to set you up for the day, you won’t end up sat on top of anyone. Plus, in the summer they have a beautiful outdoor garden to enjoy the early morning sun together.

 


West London
The Locals

The Locals

The Locals is a healthy-eating inspired hangout, which welcomes hounds. Open from 8am, arrange a breakfast meeting or jump start your day with the best of intentions on a menu of Gluten Free Buckwheat Pancakes, Locals Full Healthy, Skinny Eggs and more washed down with drinks such as Almond Matcha Lattes and cold press Fresh Juices. The space has a lovely open feel with plenty of space around the tables for your dog to patiently wait for some healthy goodness to fall off your plate.

8 Gatliff Rd, London SW1W 8DT

South
Federation Coffee
Federation Coffee

Open daily from 8am, Federation Café can be found in Brixton Village’s covered market serving brews for caffeine aficionados as well as freshly made snacks and cakes. A mix of nomadic workers on their computers, friends catching up and those watching the world go by, it's popular and not overly spacious but the staff are lovely, the coffee is great and they’re nice to dogs, so we’d probably suggest this one as a grab and go in places of the big boy coffee chains.

77-78, Brixton Village Market, Coldharbour Ln, Brixton, London SW9 8PS

Central London
Joe & The Juice
Joe and the juice

Prep and prime yourself for the day ahead at this vibrant and hip chain, offering aptly named juices such as Clear Vision, Hell of a Nerve, Stress Down and Energizer. If your more Joe than juice they have a great coffee menu too. Dogs are always welcome, and they tend to favour cool dance tunes that will help fire you and your dog up for an impressive day ahead. If you are after a quick lunch to go, pop back later for their wholemeal toasted sandwiches.
