Sheffield’s most dog-friendly street: 5 spots on Abbeydale Road ideal for your pooch
Abbeydale Road has more dog friendly businesses than any other street in Sheffield, here are 5 must-try spots according to Dog Friendly Sheffield.
Let sleeping dogs lie
It feels like the Broadfield was there right at the start of this Abbeydale revitalisation, and they’ve always been a dog friendly favourite. During colder months get yourself and your pal sat in the bar side (dogs can’t go in the restaurant area) and enjoy one of their famous pies with a splash of Hendo’s, on a summer day you can head out back and grab a bench in their sizeable beer garden and enjoy a lazy Sunday pint.

Pizza with your pal
Nether Edge Pizza Company
Dogs in restaurants is still a little taboo in the UK, but more and more eateries are allowing well-behaved puppers in for supper. Nether Edge Pizza Company needs no introduction, their stone-baked pizza is rightly heralded as some of the best in the city. Their Abbeydale Road restaurant is super welcoming of dogs (as long as they’ve got the space to accommodate). You’re more than welcome to sit inside, or on a warmer day enjoy your pizza in their outdoor seating area. Don’t fancy staying? They also offer takeaway.

Craft ale and waggy tails
Turner’s Craft Beer Bottle Shop
Turner’s is the type of place that after you’ve discovered it, you’ll ‘just pop in for a look’ every time you’re walking past with your dog. Craft beer fans will find a huge range of bottles and cans from a variety of breweries to browse and take home with you, but while you’re in there why not stay for a cheeky pint from their ever-changing in-shop draft? You won’t get that at your local offie.

Paws for a pint
If you’re out for a Saturday afternoon beer or cocktail then you can’t go wrong with BarrowBoy. It feels cosy in winter and has seating outside the front and back for those warmer days. The seats by the window are perfect for dog owners as it means your dog can be kept in a safe space. There’s plenty on offer on the bar for beer lovers, but I’d recommend trying a cocktail and if you’re hungry you MUST try the Bao Buns. There’s a good little dog-friendly bar crawl in Abbeydale with the likes of Dead Donkey, Picture House Social, Two Thirds Beer Co, Gin Bar at Vintedge and of course the Broadfield all welcoming dogs.

Abbeydale Road is alive with activity on a Sunday morning with a whole host of wonderful dog-friendly cafes to choose from including Okeh Cafe, Urban-Ita, Bragazzis and more but our pick is cafe and vinyl record shop, Cole’s Corner. Cole’s will give your dog a fantastic welcome with a bowl of ‘scooby snacks’ for them to enjoy while you sip on great coffee and enjoy their selection of cakes, paninis and soup with locally sourced ingredients. Watch the world go by while they spin old reggae records. The cafe also stocks dog leads and accessories made from re-purposed climbing rope.
