Ozone Coffee Roasters, 11 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4AQ
Top dog-friendly breakfast/brunch spot. One of Rufus and Heidi's favourite restaurants where they are welcomed by manager Robyn and petted by all the hipsters. Expect to see a plethora of hounds and enjoy your poached eggs on toast with the most delicious rye bread made by local Dalston bakers Dusty Knuckle.

Daphne's, 112 Draycott Avenue, Chelsea, London SW3 3AE
An institution, Daphne’s is a fabulous Italian lunch time people watching spot where Fido is warmly welcomed too. Have lunch with your pet in the garden area year-round (it has a covered glass top). Signature dishes include scallops, burrata, linguine with crab, chilli and parsley and their famous meatballs. Pets can expect water from a super stylish Lulu Guinness Daphne bowl and lots of love.

Hally's, 60 New King's Road, Fulham, London SW6 4LS
This Californian-themed cafe in Parson's Green is something of an institution in Fulham. Owner Anna has a terrier called Arthur and the café is usually full of canine customers. In fact, regular Labrador Fudge receives a carrot on every visit! Expect great coffee and brunches and a buzzy atmosphere. Favourites include the full English with homemade beans or pop along to their juice bar across the road for a gym bunny smoothie or delicious bacon brioche rolls.

Petersham Nurseries, Church Lane, Petersham Road, Richmond TW10 7AB
A great place to pop in with your pooch after a brisk walk in Richmond Park. Step into this stylish nursery, pick out some plants, and hang out with Fido amongst the foliage for a coffee and homemade cake or stay for lunch for some delicious sandwiches, quiches and seasonal salads. Your pet will love wandering around the nurseries and afterwards enjoy another walk along the river with fabulous views.

There’s nothing better than a walking break with your hound in tow, and PetsPyjamas’ Pet Inspectors Rufus and Heidi know the best dog-friendly places to stay. Here are some of their top breaks as well as their favourite walks to enjoy nearby...

The Devonshire Arms at Beeley, Derbyshire
Set on the Chatsworth Estate, The Devonshire Arms provides a fabulously cosy base for a walking holiday in Derbyshire. Well-behaved dogs can stay in any of the four luxurious Brookside House rooms. Enjoy a selection of delicious British dishes in the hotel’s gastropub – the perfect refuelling stop after a long day of roaming!

Cliveden House, Berkshire
For a truly glamourous walking petaway, stay at five-star hotel and former home of the Astor family, Cliveden House.

The Groes Inn, Wales
This ivy-clad British inn overlooks the sweeping Conwy Estuary and is the perfect dog-friendly stopover for a long weekend. Only half a mile from Snowdonia National Park, The Groes Inn offers the perfect balance of great service, award-winning food and stunning location. All furry guests will be provided with water bowls in your room, while blankets and biscuits are supplied at the bar. Good excuse to stop by for a drink or two!
