Dog Friendly Venues

Deal is a very dog friendly town with many cafe’s, bars and restaurants happy to welcome well behaved dogs.

We’ve tried to make things easy and compile a list of venues in Deal that welcome dogs. However, things do change. Our advice, to avoid disappointment, would be that if any of venue catches your eye, please check they still welcome dogs as you book.
