With Autumn upon us and winter fast approaching, it’s time to pull out the raincoat, put on the wellies and go for a nice winter walk. But what walk is complete without a furry friend and quick pit stop?

Manchester is brimming with dog-friendly pubs, but to make it that bit easier Christopher Cederskog – European General Manager of Rover.com – has recommended his favourite Manchurian watering holes.

Rover.com is the largest dog walking and boarding service in North America, matching owners with trusted sitters. Thanks to Rover’s stringent sign up process, owners can be safe in the knowledge that their dog will be well looked after – with all prospective sitters and walkers facing a safety check and test before being hand-reviewed by sitter quality specialists. 1 in 5 applicants are successful.

On top of killing it in the food department, Cottonpolis is also one of the most dog-friendly pubs in Manchester. Offering pooches the full VIP experience, dogs can enjoy a special treat of tuna sashimi or char sui pork whilst you sip a cold pint.
