The pub, which also took home the title last year, is located on the busy A6, going through to Cumbria and is in a prime position for staycations.
It’s A La Barke menu features full meals for the four-legged customers with dishes priced from £3 and up while on a Sunday, dogs can also tuck into a roast alongside their humans.
However, the pub has separate areas so guests who don’t want to sit near dogs can in a designated space.
Judges were impressed with the pub’s cone system where owners collect different coloured cones depending on the temperament and diet of their dog.
The Bellflower’s large garden features a stick library – where pooches can choose and replace their own sticks to play with.
Furthermore, humans can hire out the garden for exclusive use before the pub opens to provide an area for their dog to run around off-lead, in a secure environment.
On the drinks side of things, pooches can enjoy their own dog beer while their owners sip their pints.
Future plans at the Bellflower include expanding their events side, which currently includes birthday parties for dogs.
