AFTER Worcester was named among the top dog-friendliest places in the country we have been looking at the best places to take your dog in the country.

As we previously revealed the city came sixth in the rankings of major cities - judged on how much its hotels, restaurants, pubs and outdoor trails were accommodating to dogs. 

The Faithful city was ahead of cities including Gloucester, Plymouth and Chester. 

We have picked seven dog-friendly locations in the city to be in the spotlight:


Black & White


This cafe on The Foregate is often used by dog owners. 

One reviewer said: "I always have a fantastic brunch here, it's our favourite cafe in Worcester.

"It is dog-friendly and very accommodating. I would highly recommend it.



Francini Cafe Di Columbia


Francini's, in Angel Place, has received praise from dog owners.

One reviewer said: "An authentic place with Colombian people, with real food and coffee.

"They are dog-friendly too. The decorations and music are carefully selected to make you feel like you are really there."

Toast, at The Flyford in Flyford Flavell, is a family run breakfast and brunch restaurant based in a former school bus into a dining room.

A reviewer on said: "Fantastic place for dogs and their 'pawrents'.

"We rocked up on a Saturday lunchtime and were fortunate enough to get a table due a no-show. We had the Full Toast and the Brunch Hash and both were absolutely delicious."

The national chain's shop in Pump Street, Worcester is dog friendly.
