5 of the best dog-friendly restaurants and cafés

Cornwall is replete with superb cafés and eateries, just waiting to welcome you and your four-legged friends.

There’s nothing quite so sharp as a Cornish sea-air appetite, but making the most of Cornwall’s incredible home-grown produce isn’t always easy when you’re planning a trip with your furry friend in tow. Fortunately, Cornwall is home to a wealth of dog-friendly restaurants, just waiting to welcome you and your pooch! Enjoy locally caught seafood, tempting pub classics, homemade cakes and much, much more – the choice is yours!

1 – Rick Stein, Fistral

Overlooking the iconic Fistral beach, the casual and laidback restaurant serves Rick’s famous fish and chips, beach bites, curries, noodles and dishes inspired by his travels around Asia. Dog and family friendly, it’s the perfect place to watch the waves after a walk across the beach with your pooch.


2 – Trenance Chocolate Factory and Craft Centre, Mullion

The Craft Centre team love to welcome dogs to their coffee shop. As dog owners themselves, they recognise the importance of a space where you and your pet can relax together, and there’s plenty of room in their inviting café. Four-footed guests are even offered their own dog biscuits and there are plenty of water bowls around the site for thirsty hounds.


3 – The Angry Anchovy

The Angry Anchovy pizza restaurant is located in the idyllic fishing village of Port Isaac; set just up from the coast path it’s the perfect place to seek refuge during your coastal explorations.

There is nowhere in Port Isaac like The Angry Anchovy, especially when sometimes all you really want is pizza with your family and friends, including your beloved four-legged ones. The Angry Anchovy restaurant is not only dog friendly – the team is mildly obsessed! Offering complimentary pizzas for your pooch which are made to order, there’s even a dog gallery that showcases the diverse range of canine customers. Whether you’re visiting Doc Martin country or having a hiking holiday, these pizzas are worth experiencing!


4  – Coby’s Coffee Shop

Located at Stable Art, in the upstairs room of the chapel overlooking the fields and Cardinham Woods beyond, Coby’s Coffee Shop serves a wonderful selection of homemade cakes, cookies and teacakes, plus teas, hot chocolates and fantastic freshly ground Illy Coffee. Add to this a delicious menu of light lunches and sharing platters – all made fresh every day – and you have the perfect spot to gather with friends after a bracing walk through the woods, or for a sneaky treat after browsing art materials. Dog friendly and open Monday to Friday, 9am to 4.30pm, then on Saturday 9am to 3pm, be sure to pop in next time you and your pooch go down to the woods!


5 – The Pier Café

A small and independent café with a perfect waterfront location in Falmouth, The Pier Café serves breakfasts, brunches, lunches and afternoon teas from 8.30am through to 5pm. The café boasts arguably the best view of Falmouth harbour from the sun deck, and with home-baked goodies on offer alongside a wide range of teas and award-winning coffee, it’s the perfect spot to watch the world on the water go by. Pier Café is also fully licensed, and be sure to keep an eye out for evening events, including live music, themed nights and more. So, pop in and say hi! Take it from us, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
