A Wimbledon pub is looking to be crowned the most dog-friendly boozer in London for the second year running.

In 2017 the Hand in Hand took out the top prize at the DogBuddy awards, and it is in with a chance to go back-to-back.

The up-to-date leaderboard has been revealed for this year and once again the Hand in Hand is on top.

“Many of our customers travel some distance to visit our pub - even passing many other pubs on route," the Wimbledon pub manager Christine Blackman said.

"Being dog-friendly is essential to us as a business as it promotes customer loyalty."

Simon the Tanner in Southwark is challenging that title and is currently a close second, mounting a serious challenge for the title of being London’s most pooch friendly pub.
