dog dining at stout irish pub

You can now dine alongside your pup at this Toronto pub

No dinner date? No problem. If lately, you’ve found yourself swiping left far too many times, there’s a Toronto pub that you and your best friend can check out. Your four-legged friend that is.

Recently, Stout Irish Pub decided to take its menu in a whole new direction. Alongside the hearty pub grub, they’re known for, the restaurant is offering “yum yums” and sweet treats with your pup’s palette in mind.

Created with love for your fur baby, the dog-friendly menu can be ordered in two portion sizes —one for dogs under 15 pounds, and the other for hounds over 15 pounds — and offers traditional takes on Irish classics including mash potatoes and gravy, chicken and rice, and the always crowd-pleasing cottage pie.

For hounds with an insatiable sweet tooth, there are carrots and whipped cream, and drool-worthy peanut butter and ice cream. And the non-alcoholic brewski on tap is sure to please even the pickiest of canines.

While there are plenty of dog-friendly patios in the city, pooches dining alongside their owners is a fairly new concept. `

Last July, King West restaurant Lobster Burger Bar invited dogs of Toronto to dine on their patio with the introduction of a pup-friendly menu. Standouts dishes include thanksgiving turkey, zesty rosemary chicken, and fisherman’s catch with salmon and spinach.

The Fox & The Fiddle at Cityscape is showing some love to Fido, too.  If you love breakfast (who doesn’t?), the pub is hosting a Bark & Brunch on September 10 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Organized by Toronto Dog Moms, tickets are $45 and include favourites like avocado toast and eggs benny, while dogs can enjoy human-grade meats, fruits, and veggies provide by Mo’ Greens. A mini reading with an animal communicator is also on the bill.
