Perched on the edge of a cliff on secluded Pentire Head, the views of the Cornish coastline from Lewinnick Lodge are so breathtaking it’s worth a visit for the vistas alone. Originally an 18th Century cottage, the building is now home to a stylish, contemporary brasserie and bar, fit for Cornish explorers on two legs as well as four paws. With little in sight other than the spectacular views of the shores and sea beyond, you’ll feel like you’ve uncovered a local secret. There are few better places to enjoy a sun-kissed day (or west coast sunset) in dog-friendly Cornwall with your pooch than this cliff-top retreat.

Reservations are not taken in the bar or on the terrace, so just head over and grab a table.

Food and Drink

At Lewinnick Lodge

The restaurant is designed with the views in mind. Floor to ceiling windows run the length of the room, and you’ll struggle to find a table without a sea view here. Whether cosying up by the fire, or grabbing a stool at the bar, even on a drearier day the setting has a special feel.

The bustling interior serves food which is is inspired by the beachside location; the menu is full to the brim with seaside classics, including breaded scampi, seafood linguine and steamed Fowey mussels, while a mouthwatering selection of grilled meats includes a slow-cooked pulled pork burger, and moroccan lamb shoulder with roasted vegetable couscous.

The fish-focused specials board changes twice daily to allow the chef to feature the freshest seasonal produce supplied by local farmers and fisherman that day.

Doggy delights

Dogs are welcome to eat with you in the bar area and can join you anywhere outside, including the large timber terrace, where you and fido will find the best vistas. Don’t forget to pick-up a treat for your pup from the bar, to stave off any hunger pangs post walk.

By day

If sunrises are more your thing than sunsets, breakfast is served from 8am every day – treat yourself to some American-style pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, or choose your preferred style of eggs while the sun makes its way over the headland.

An enticing selection of sandwiches and salads are served from noon until 5pm daily. Try the confit duck with watercress, hoi sin and sesame, or dressed crab served in the shell with a roasted potato salad.

From dusk

The terrace is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Atlantic coast. You’ll need a sundowner to go with it, of course. Try an Elderflower Fizz, a Dark & Stormy, or take your pick from the thoughtful, and very reasonably priced, wine list.

The extra bits

A children’s menu is available with a number of options available for little ones.

There are also a number of dog-friendly rooms on offer.


  • Cuisine: British
  • Open daily, 8am to late
  • Breakfast served 8am to 11.30am
  • Main menu served noon to 10pm
  • Dogs welcome in the bar area and on the terrace
  • Follow the coastal path from the restaurant straight to dog-friendly Fistral Beach

Where We Are


The coastal path is right on the doorstep of Lewinnick Lodge. A 15-20 minute walk east will take you and fido to the magnificent Fistral Beach; your dog will have a coastal playground right at his paw tips, and it’s dog-friendly all year round. Famed for its waves, a number of international surfing events are held here, so if your pooch is a fan of a paddle he’ll have more than a few wet-suited friends to keep an eye on.

From mid-May to mid-September, heading west will take you to Crantock Beach in around half an hour (including a short ferry hop over the clear waters of the River Gannel – available between 10am and 6pm).

Away from the beach, North Cornwall has an abundance of activities for you and fido to enjoy together. For inspiration see our dog-friendly Cornwall destination page.

Address: Lewinnick Lodge, Pentire Headland, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 1QD

Hit the road

Lewinnick Lodge is less than a 3 mile drive towards the coast from where the A3075 joins the A392. The drive will take you up on to the clifftop, with views over Fistral Beach to your right. There is plenty of parking available at the restaurant.

All aboard

For those arriving from further afield for a day by the sea, Newquay station is a 45 minute walk away, and services are fairly infrequent, so you’d be better arriving by road if possible. Local bus services from Newquay will also drop you a 10 minute walk from the venue.
