One thing that makes a pub a must-visit – other than cheap pints: the presence of a pub cat or dog.
A day cooing over a kitty or stroking a dog while boozing and chatting with pals is a day well spent, we reckon.
So it’s handy to know the places where you’re likely to do some good pet-spotting.

And Londoners, we’re especially hashtag blessed as a humble pub lands a spot at 65 worldwide.
The Camel in Bethnal Green was voted the best pub for pets in the world, not just because they allow dogs and cats to come in and have a bowl of water, but because they have to pub cats called Pie and Steve.
‘We’re a really pet friendly pub,’ says Debbie Connor, the Camel Pub’s owner. ‘We’re near parks with lots of outdoor seating.
‘Dogs and cats are very welcome inside and we always offer them bowls of water.
‘My cats are called Pie and Steve and Steve particularly loves dogs. There was a bulldog under the table the other day and Steve went to sit with him and drink out of his bowl, we have a really friendly animal and human community.’
