Welcome to The Hairy Dog - Minehead's favourite family pub and restaurant

Awarded UK Family Pub of the Year 2005, the Hairy Dog in Minehead, Somerset has a well deserved reputation for serving delicious food in a family-friendly pub which has a traditional atmosphere with the added benefits of a large conservatory, outside eating area and kids' playground.

The emphasis is very much on families, with a fantastic play area for the children, so adults can enjoy a peaceful drink without having to keep the kids entertained.

The Hairy Dog is a very child-friendly pub, but later in the evenings it is also a perfect venue to meet up with friends for a drink and a meal, and enjoy the livelier atmosphere. The pub has large plasma screen TVs, so you can watch all the major sporting events showing on Sky sports while enjoying your drinks.

The Hairy Dog is conveniently situated in the centre of Minehead, just 10 minutes walk from the beach and Butlins Holiday Resort. Minehead is the gateway to the beautiful Exmoor National Park, and is the perfect base from which you can explore this part of the West Country, with its many visitor attractions, stunning scenery, and spectacular coastline.

The historic village of Dunster with its medieval church and houses, the Yarn Market, and famous Dunster Castle is only a few miles away, as are the picturesque National Trust owned villages of Selworthy, Bossington and Allerford. The spectacular North Devon coastline and the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are just a short drive away over the moor, with Porlock Hill to climb on the way!

Minehead itself is a traditional seaside resort, with plenty to offer to all types of holidaymakers; young people, families, and older people looking for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. You can take a trip on the West Somerset Railway, spend a day at Butlins, have a round of golf, or simply laze on the sandy beach.

The seafront promenade has recently been enhanced, and you can take a pleasant evening stroll from the golf course right around to the pretty harbour, enjoying the views across the Bristol Channel to Wales.

When you are in need of refreshment after a day spent exploring or lazing on the beach, come to The Hairy Dog where you can relax in our friendly pub with a drink and choose from our extensive menu, offering a wide choice of meals at reasonable prices.

We also have a special menu, Puppy Dog Choice, offering meals which will appeal to the younger members of the family. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Hairy Dog.
