I produce the magazine Dogfriendly and have an article about the South Downs in the next edition and wondered if anyone could recommend any boutiques, shops, cafes, galleries, pubs etc that let dogs inside so I can include these - any suggestions that would make our readers want to visit with their dogs would be wonderful. Also we ask they follow a Dogfriendly code which includes always clearing up after their canine companions wherever they are, never leaving bags of poo hanging in trees and respecting the other people they meet as not every one likes dogs as much as we do thanks Gareth

Can you explain why people climb up trees to hang bags of dog sh*t.
Is it a festive thing? A cultural habit from Eastern Europe perhaps?

I always thought it was on the same lines as "Blue Ice" ! Only neater and probably more hygienic !

Rather than clog up the forum with dog-related matters, Gareth, why not give us your email address so we can contact you directly?
Off the top of my head, I can't think of any pubs in Lewes that aren't dog-friendly. They got free sausages in the Dorset once.

Lewes is a really dog friendly town. I've taken our dog into so many places here, including the Pelham pub, the lewes arms, Harvey's tavern, the needlemakers cafe, quite a few of the charity shops plus fat face.
Honerable mention has to go to the snowdrop, which, at one stage sold doggie bar snacks, and oddly enough, the clothes shop white stuff, where the staff made a real fuss of our girl.
Also you should check out a kid's book written about the dogs in the railway land. I can't remember the name but it's advertised on here somewhere. The pics look good.

On the other side of town both the Kings Head and the wonderful Swan welcome dogs. They both have good sized gardens so there's a bit more space for canine companions when the weather's clement. And if you stop at Daisy's sandwich bar by the station my dog has been treated to free sausages!

We still sell dog treats which we get from 50 Sheep on Cliffe High St. Honestly, Gareth, all the pubs and lots of other businesses are very dog friendly here - you'd be hard pushed to find a more canine welcoming town! Might be worth checking out Lewesbandb.co.uk for dog friendly accomodation.

Still waiting for Pelham Hotel to allow our doggy. She likes a decent view with her doggy snacks. Other than that, she goes most places in Lewes with us, though the Snowdrop is her preferred choice of destination.

@algy thought everyone knew about Yellow Snow and Blue Ice !
Blue ice waste is flushed out of the many jets miles up in the sky as toilet waste, but due to the high altitude it often freezes and falls to earth whole. Same principle as not flushing on a train whilst in a station !!

The Snowdrop's definitely going in and the treats so many thanks but can I check The Charleston Farmhouse - says dogs aren't welcome but someone above says they are in the cafe. Is this the Bloomsbury group place and if so, is it worth visiting with a dog if dogs can't use most of the facilities x g

Thankyou Boggles , but as cousins Biggles and I are not au fait with your modern terms . I am however familiar with the conveniences on British Railways of our time, though I have heard that the latest ones have tanks to store the waste water , so the navvies don`t get surprises when working on the tracks .Toodle pip old chap.

The Café at Raystede is very dog friendly. Dogs are also allowed in the shop.
