Established in 1782, The Boatside Inn is a traditional country inn and self catering holiday business and is renowned for being not only dog friendly but dog obsessed! Many of the staff, locals and regular visitors are all connected through their love of dogs and there is always a very sociable atmosphere in our bar and snug areas where people can dine alongside their four legged friends. In the winter time, many a slumbering dog can be found in front of the log burner after a long walk through the Tyne Valley and there are always a range of dig treats behind the bar while owners enjoy a hearty meal and a pint of local produced ale.
Our welcoming, beautifully maintained and spacious beer garden is always well stocked with water buckets for thristy dogs and there is even a self contained kennel area for owners who want to leave their dogs in a safe environment, should they wish to enjoy a meal in the slightly more formal surroundings of our restaurant.
Our B&B accommodation and self catering cottages are found in a separate annexe next o the pub and we welcome dog loving visitors throughout the year and unlike many ‘dog friendly’ establishments, we do not charge extra for furry visitors, which is greatly appreciated by guests
