1. The Cobweb Inn at Boscastle is a quaint, characterful pub with two roaring fires in the winter for your canine companion to stretch in front of, as well as home-cooked food, real ales, local cider and live music on occasion. Dogs are welcome in the bar on a lead.

2. For real foodies, The Cornish Arms, St Merryn is Rick Stein’s famous pub and unsurprisingly serves amazing food. In the winter, cosy up in front of the log fire with a pint and man’s best friend, and in the summer months, roam the large beer garden and soak up that Cornish sunshine.

3. Whilst in Cornwall you simply cannot miss The Watering Hole - the UK’s only bar right on the beach. Set in a stunning location on a beautiful dog-friendly beach at Perranporth, what better place to while away the afternoon with a pint, hot chocolate or great food and rest weary feet and paws.
