a guide to the best dog friendly pubs restaurants and cafes in cornwall

Cornwall is a dog walker’s paradise. Rolling hills, jagged coastlines and white sandy beaches make it one of the most scenic places in the UK to embark on a mini adventure, year round. When you’ve tired out your pooch after a long coastal walk, or a gallop along the beach or an open field, relax in one of these cosy dog friendly hide-outs for some fantastic food that won’t cost you the earth.

Travellers Rest


Take the coastal route from either Watergate Bay or Mawgan Porth and refuel with some gorgeous grub at this delightful, renovated 16th century pub. Treat your woofer to a snack from the treat jar behind the bar!

The Fox’s Revenge


Take a trip to this humorously-named eatery in the midst of some stunning countryside. After a long day out, gather your friends, family and dogs and enjoy some fantastic gastropub classics in this quaint yet modern environment. In the summer, enjoy an outdoor movie with your food!

Old Coastguard Hotel


A strong contender for the most stunning hotel/restaurant views in Cornwall, the Old Coastguard Hotel offers a seasonal, ever-changing menu and invites you to bring your friends, dogs and children. Enjoy three courses from the delightful menu for £24.50.

Good Vibes Cafe 


As you step inside this airy space, you’ll see why this cafe has gained such a fantastic reputation in Cornwall. Beautifully decorated and unusual bakes signal the attention to detail of the staff who are truly passionate about baking. Woofer-friendly!

Lewinnick Lodge


Nestled into the Pentire headland, Lewinnick Lodge is just a stones throw from both Fistral and Crantock beaches. Dogs are welcome to eat with you in the bar area or the patio. It’s just a shame they won’t admire the sea views as much as you!

Pandora Inn 


Parts of this stunning renovated creekside inn stretch right back to the 13th century – a truly timeless location. This tucked-away gem has a lovely atmosphere and a unique historical charm. Arrive by foot, by car or by water!

Fern Pit Café


Expect plenty of delicious, fresh seafood alongside unrivalled views of the Gannel and Crantock beach. This one’s a real dogspotting hot spot! Sadly for you winter dog-walkers, the Fern Pit is only open over the summer period – from May to September.
