Kaia the Shiba Inu  Dog friendly pub explorer! 🍺 Beer connoisseur, 🏹🐿 Squirrel hunter 📍London via 🇦🇺 🇳🇱 📸 @shiba_of_hampstead

The @wenlockarms. I remember coming to this iconic boozer when I first arrived in London many coats ago. The Wenlock opened in it's original form back in 1835 as a tap room for the Wenlock Brewery but unfortunately poured it's last pint in the 1960s when the brewery shut it's doors. After reopening in the 90s the Wenlock has been refurbished, threatened with conversion and saved by the local council making the pub part of a conservation area and protecting it for future generations of lucky patrons. The pub is a real ale oasis with 10 cask ales and 20 keg lines from breweries such as @sirencraftbrew, @darkstarbrewco, Oakham, @beavertownbeer, @fivepointsbrew, @fourpure plus many more! The no frills décor is minimalist, scruffy and full of character with only a handful of small tables and stools surrounding the beautifully distressed wooden u-shaped bar. The Wenlock is almost as unique as me and, in an area now know for it's cocktail bars and busy nightclubs, it's comforting to know the Wenlock will be pulling pints for pub dogs and punters well into the future.

Welcome to the @old_eagle_camden, such a lovely place (such a lovely place), I've got a lovely face. Plenty of room at the @old_eagle_camden, any time of year (any time of year), you can find a beer! Ahhhh, a great tune for a great pub. Located on the border of Camden and Kentish Town this quirky corner local is hidden away from the Camden crowds but definitely deserves your attention. Even from the outside the odd assortment of old instruments hanging in the windows act like bait, hooking your curiosity to take closer look. Once inside you feel obliged to order a pint if only to allow yourself enough time to soak in the multitudes of curios, statuettes, old photos lining the back of the bar, rows of tankards...the list goes on! All of this combined with lovely staff and quirky locals make the Eagle soar above the average boozer and definitely one to visit!!!

At the @old_eagle_camden contemplating (over a pint of course) whether to order some boots to protect my precious paws as I navigate London discovering new pubs. This could take a while 😉🐶🍻

I thought Dartmouth was famous for it's outstanding natural beauty not tasty beverages and a cosy atmosphere?! Well the latter certainly appears to be the case here at the @dartmoutharms. Boasting the likes of @pressuredropbrw, @fivepointsbrew, @darkstarbrewco and @brouwerij_boon in keg, cask and bottle I'm much happier sitting here soaking my taste buds in beer than my paws in the icy English Chanel! After 2 years of dormancy the Dartmouth has been picked up by the guys behind the pawsome @cheshamarms in Hackney. Much like the Chesham the Dartmouth was sheduled to be converted into flats but was luckily saved by the surrounding community and is now in safe paws. This large open boozer has been tastefully and respectfully refurbished and updated appealing to punters young, furry and old. On top of this the bar staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable always willing to help me choose from the 12 taps on offer. Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside.....but I love a great pub!

You know what I love about the great outdoors? It's one big toilet. I've never understood humans facination with building elaborate loos just for doing what comes naturally, we're all animals after all. However, here at @ladiesandgentlemenbar in Kentish Town they've got the right idea by converting an abandoned underground lavatory into a trendy little cocktail bar. Thankfully the interior has been fully refurbished with only a patch of original exposed tiles remaining as a nod to the bars previous potent incarnation. The rest of the dimly lit bar oozes modern retro cool with upcycled mirrors, book shelves and record players scattered around the handfull of tables lining the walls. All of this swank means nothing though if the cocktails aren't up to scratch but L&G has this well and truly covered as everything I got my cute little paws on was creative, clean, balanced and delicious. On top of this the mixologists and bar staff are helpful and charming happily guiding me through the cocktail menu. If L&G is anything to go by humans should start turning all loos into bars! Mix me up another thanks bartender!!

Hola damas y caballeros! I planned on beginning my review of the @spaniardsinnhampstead with a humerous joke about the Spanish but, in fear of offending my Southern European brethren, I decided no way josé! It's a good thing anyway as I've never been juan for jokes in poor taste! The Spaniards is located in the remote North West corner of Hampstead Heath and by all rights should be a quiet place to grab a pint. However, most tourist and Londoners have likely heard of the Spaniards with many making the pilgrimage through the Heath on a sunny afternoon to quench their thirst in it's enormous beer garden. Once inside it feels like you've been transported back to 1585 as you pass through the atmospheric bar area and dimly lit resteraunt rooms where the ceilings feel like they're only just being held up by old wooden beams. The beer and wine list is fairly standard but after a hike on a hot summers day a cold pint of @sierranevadauk is just the ticket. Yep, I live a good life. Sometimes as I put my paws up and partake in my pint I imagine myself as Christopher Kailumbus planning my next expedition to discover more great pubs!

After a long day in the Heath chasing squirrels and sniffing bums, I was in need of a relaxed pint to reflect on today's outing. Luckily as I departed the green oasis and hit tarmac I bumped into a rather charming Shar Pei. He'd just left a little boozer called the @dukeshighgate and promised me I wouldn't be disappointed by the tap line up. On arrival it was immediately obvious that chubby charmer knew what he was talking about! The beer selection here is excellent and according to some of the locals it changes faster than I shed fur. Right now I am sitting down to a cheeky half of @magicrockbrewing Highwire on cask whilst my human is partaking in a pint of @fivepointsbrew Pilsner served up with a smile by the knowledgeable and friendly bar staff. There is a great feel to this pub with it's contemporary but comforting decor, chilled playlist humming in the background and locals sitting at the bar under a dimly lit line of individual light bulbs. The food looks whisker licking good as well with rotating pop-ups serving a range of exciting taste sensations giving me just another reason to come back (not that I needed one!). The Duke is a little gem in an area mostly starved of pubs with exciting beer and food. Go here now!

People watching at the @spaniardsinnhampstead with a cheeky @sierranevadauk Pilsner. Review to follow. Happy Sunday all!!!

Happy Friday all. Don't get too messy!!!!
