It’s official, we can all enjoy eating and meeting just for a drink at restaurants and pubs with outdoor seating once again. Here are some dog friendly spots in Cornwall that you can enjoy…
For wonderful coast path walks… C Bay Cafe, Crantock near Newquay
For a really delicious lunch in a cafe which offers fantastic views over Crantock beach and the ocean, head to C Bay. The cafe is right next to the coast path, so before or after, you can enjoy a lovely walk to nearby Porth Joke beach where you often see seals playing or head to Crantock Beach which is a about 20 minute walk or a short drive away.

For views of St Michael’s Mount a lovely day out… The Godolphin Arms, Marazion (main picture)
Boasting arguably one of the best views in Cornwall, The Godolphin Arms has a great reputation for food and you can enjoy lunch and a walk along Marazion beach (note there is a daytime dog ban during July and August). Outside terrace opens from April 12th – weather dependent.
For moorland views and epic walks… Jamaica Inn, Bolventor, Bodmin Moor
Head up to the wilds of Bodmin Moor (well, just off the A30) to Jamaica Inn, the inspiration for Daphne du Maurier’s famous book about smugglers. There are stunning views over the moor and some spectacular walks for the more adventurous.

For delicious hot chocolates and breakfast in the dunes… Poldhu Beach Cafe
This gorgeous little beach cafe on the Lizard has been offering a fantastic takeaway service all year. You can enjoy breakfasts, burgers and their legendary hot chocolates and cookies as well as a bracing walk on a very beautiful beach.

For BBQ on the harbour… The Longstore, Charlestown
For obvious reasons it is best to keep dogs on a lead here, but nonetheless, it’s a wonderful spot on the edge of Charlestown Habour to enjoy The Longstore’s famous BBQ food and other treats.
Tel: 01726 68598
For a pub lunch on the river… The Pandora Inn, Restronguet Creek
This beautiful thatched pub on the upper reaches of the Fal estuary is a lovely place to walk to with your dog. Enjoy the tranquility of the river and really lovely food and service — these guys just won Gold at the Cornwall Tourism Awards. Open from Friday 16th April.
