John Lewis

John Lewis is the ultimate shopping destination. Conveniently nestled close to the Castle Mall, it’s a haven for homeware, furniture and fashion lovers. Only assistance dogs are allowed in catering outlets, food halls, and roof terraces – but you and your furry friend are more than welcome to explore the rest of the store.

“Of course we welcome dogs; with our name, it’d be a bit odd if we didn’t!” – the folks at Dogfish certainly have their priorities straight. This menswear store specialises in designer street and workwear and has been serving Norwich since 1992. With three floors stocked with timeless classics, it’s no surprise that Dogfish is one of our favourite independent stores in the city.

Does anything beat plants, homeware, and a tasty bite to eat? Notcutts, just outside of the city centre, has all of this under one roof – making it a brilliant place to shop for gifts. Not only can you explore their garden centre, but they also have a dog-friendly seating area in the restaurant. So, you and your pup can both enjoy a treat (or two) and the greenery.

Address: Daniels Rd, Norwich NR4 6QP


A true Norwich landmark. Jarrolds is the go-to independent department store that’s been adored by Norwich Natives for over 200 years! Pop by to browse their huge collection of chic furniture, fashion, beauty, books, gifts and kitchenware. 

Jarrolds also allows well-behaved dogs – apart from areas where food is served. You can read their dog admittance policy here.

Address: 1, 11 London St, Norwich NR2 1JF

Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Just around the corner from Lucy & Yak, Bird & Blend Tea Co. is the place to go if you love a cuppa. With Tea Mixologists and a famous wall of tea (of over 100 loose-leaf blends), it truly is a tea lover’s paradise. Bird & Blend Tea Co. even stocks a ‘Let’s Be Having Brew!’ that’s hearty and fruity – just like Norwich. They also host fabulous workshops/tasting sessions. Bring your pup along for some tea (and dog) enthusiast bonding!
