    The Britannia Inn, Elterwater, is a great place for dogs and people. Its located in the middle of the village, right alongside the Cumbria Way, and at the intersection of several paths. Its a good base for walking in the Langdale Valley. There's a nice dog dip in the river just over the village green in case your Lab comes back muddy!

    We spent a week in Elterwater and ate there every night. It was a good place to meet other dog owners and compare notes on local walks. Its the only pub I've seen that sells dog chews over the bar!

    For people: The bar food is very good with a varied menu that changes nightly. In addition to the normal beers they have another seven taps for local brews, and change them regularly.

    I thought I'd update this. The Brit has just been awarded 'Best Pub in the Lake District' by the readers of Trail magazine. Having sampled many pubs up there I was please to see that the three I voted for ended up as the top three!

    The White Lion in Patterdale is another great dog friendly pub. Great food for us humans. Each time we visited a saucer of dog biscuits was bought to our table for Mabel with a huge jar on the bar if a top up was needed. There are also dog towels in the porch.
    Some great walks in the area too. :heart:
