The Keel Row was the Rover Dog-friendly Pub Awards North East winner for the third year as a result of receiving the most votes from the public in the area.

Locally renowned as a great pit stop after a long dog-walk, its provision includes shared eating areas, a secure garden and treats.

Sharon and Connor Herron from The Keel Row said: “Winning the regional award for the third year is an amazing accolade, but it means more to us that our customers chose to vote for us as top dog.

“Being recognised by the Rover Dog-friendly Pub Awards brings us more customers each year, with their pooches big and small.

“People now come from far and wide to visit us, which is lovely to see, and having dogs around makes it a special atmosphere within the pub.”

The pub was one of 12 regional finalists for the national award. The overall winner was Fox & Hounds in Theale, West Berkshire.

Simon Le Grice from Rover said: “We are proud to congratulate The Keel Row on winning the Dog-friendly Pub Award for the North East. The superb service they demonstrated shows real consideration for dog welfare and happiness.

“We hope that the awards will inspire dog owners country-wide to discover and support their local pubs, while also encouraging more pubs to consider our four-legged friends in their offerings.”
