Just 20 paces from the sand at Mawgan Porth, Catch Seafood Bar and Grill is perfect for grabbing a bite with the family, and dogs are welcome too!

A hound-worthy holiday

Whether you’re camping, touring or enjoying a static stay, there’s no need to leave your doggy behind! 


Furry friends welcome!
