The end of lockdown needn’t mean less time together.
With almost 60% of dog’s in the UK experiencing constant human companionship over the past 12 months, venues re-opening could mean unwanted alone time for our four-legged friends. But the end of lockdown shouldn’t mean less time together… So, with the help of our WagIt pack, we’ve pulled together a list of dog-friendly venues that have plenty of outdoor space to eat, drink, and be merry as lockdown lifts.
M Victoria Street
A multi-award-winning steak restaurant, M Victoria Street will be offering outdoor dining on their terrace from 12th April. The delicious bar and grill offers a selection of the world’s best steaks alongside a ton of seafood dishes for humans, AND a whole separate menu for dogs!
“Ooooh! This is one of my favourites. The smell of steak gets me all drool-y, which my human says is gross, but I can’t help it if I’m hungry! Plus, there is a whole separate menu for us dogs!”
Located in the leafy suburbs of North London, Gaucho Hampstead’s outdoor terrace boasts an authentic Asado barbeque. The outdoor space comes complete with an automated canopy to ensure the unreliable British weather doesn’t dampen your experience!
Not near Hampstead? Well behaved dogs and humans are welcome in all Gaucho’s restaurants, head to wagit.uk to find one near you!
“I love sitting just within sniffing distance of the barbeque so I can smell what’s cooking. The first Sunday of every month is also ‘Doggy Sunday’ – get your human to book in on one of these days if you’re looking for tons of new butts to sniff!”
The Mere Scribbler
Situated opposite Streatham Common,The Mere Scribbler is the ideal London local. Plus, with a variety of seating styles available, from bar stools and high tables to sofas and outdoor screens, their “secret garden” is perfect for an Al-Fresco experience with your two and four-legged friends.
“As a South London pup, my human and I spend lots of time here! I love getting cosy on the sofa or on her lap, but there’s also plenty of room to roam around and have a little sniff, too!”
Humble Grape Canary Wharf
If you’re in East London and fancy a glass of vino, the Humble Grape Canary Wharf is the place to go. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner and a glass of the good stuff on their beautiful waterside terrace.
“If you love water, this is the place to be! You can see and smell the river from your seat. AND, if your human drinks enough of those bottles of red water and gets all forgetful again, you might be able to sneak in an extra dinner!”

Megan’s On The High Street
Serving sunny Mediterranean food in their all-day cafes since 2002, Megan’s is back open for outdoor dining from 12th April. Their High Street Kensington spot boasts outdoor space and a dedicated doggy menu!
“At Megan’s there are plenty of friends to be made, both dogs and humans! I always get lots of attention from the waitresses, and sometimes they take pictures of me! They also have a special doggy menu so you don’t have to sit and wait for scraps.”
There won’t be availability at these dog-loving venues for long, so snatch a booking for you and your wet-nosed friend at WagIt.uk ASAP!
