Dog mutiny at The Bounty

My sister Sue and I were walking along the south bank of the Thames, west of Cookham in old Berkshire, when a cacophany of dogs indicated that we had arrived at The Bounty.

This is a friendly pub-cum-café which welcomes dogs, children, muddy boots and even walkers who merely want to use the loo.

For the dogs it was an opportunity noisily to chase around at great speed, egged on by a cheer-leader puppy on a pedestal.

This was a happy gathering, and it was splendid, and somewhat unusual, to find such a warm welcome to all.

    How nice to find a dog-friendly and walker-friendly place. It is so refreshing. If you are in Herefordshire , try the Live and Let Live on Bringsty Common. Stone floors mean muddy boots are no problem, and dogs are welcome too.

    Spotted on a notice board outside The Jolly Cricketers pub at Seer Green, Bucks: “Muddy boots and dog walkers welcome”. These days lucky is the publican who can afford to turn away business.
