Dog friendly pubs with roaring fires

Halzephron Inn

It’s that time of year when it is lovely to go for a bracing walk with the dog and then snuggle down in a cosy pub. Here is a list of some of the best dog friendly pubs with roaring fires

The Carew Arms, Antony, nr Torpoint

Set in the quiet village of Antony, The Carew Arms brings high-quality and affordable cooking to the Rame Peninsula. The kitchen is headed by BBC’s Great British Menu winner and The Fat Duck alumna, Emily Watkins whose focus is on seasonal, local produce. A private dining room, farm shop and café and modern, light interior make The Carew Arms the ideal village pub.  Nearby walk to try out: Wacker Quay

The Gurnard’s Head near Zennor

An award winning pub with fantastic food and excellent dog friendly credentials. You may need to book a place, though, and reserve one of the dog friendly tables, so call ahead if you can. Situated along the magnificent stretch of coastline from St Ives and Zennor towards Pendeen and the Poldark film sets near Levant mine and Botallack.  Nearby walk to try out: The South West Coast Path

The Cornish Arms, St Merryn

Food at The Cornish Arms is based on Rick Stein's famous recipes at this popular pub near Padstow. It offers a simple British menu with dishes like real beef burgers, mussels and chips and scampi in the basket.

Driftwood Spas, St Agnes

A traditional Cornish pub that serves hearty food and real ales, the location of the pub offers easy access to the coast whilst being part of the St Agnes community in a vibrant village with much to offer. There are three cosy bars with wood burning stoves and friendly and knowledgeable staff to serve you some of the best beer around. Nearby walk to try out: St Agnes Head and Beacon.

Pandora Inn, Restronguet Creek

Multi-award winning inn in a spectacular setting on the edge of Restronguet Creek. Parts of the Inn date back to the 13th Century and, with its flagstone floors, low-beamed ceilings and thatched roof it's not difficult to believe that little has changed since that time. Food is served all day, and you have lots of choices where to eat it too, the ground floor of the pub meandering through a series of rooms where cosy nooks and corners provide plenty of secluded areas for you to dine.  Nearby walk to try out: Leaflets for creekside walks can be picked up at the inn.
