At The Cornish Arms
With its white-washed walls and wooden-beamed interior, you can almost feel the history as you walk into The Cornish Arms – it’s cosy and welcoming atmosphere will make you feel like you’ve found a home-from-home. The Scandi-inspired log fires add a modern twist, and will keep you and your pooch warm in the winter months, while the expansive beer garden is the perfect place to while away a summer’s afternoon in the way only the Cornish know how.
The menu is perfectly British, with a few Asian twists – what we’ve all come to expect from Rick Stein. Tuck into a steak and ale pie, a basket of scampi with homemade tartar sauce, or a rich, dark lamb karahi. Don’t forget to leave room for some Cornish ice cream for dessert! Ales are sourced from St Austell’s Brewery (in the Southern part of the county), while the short but thoughtful wine selection provides the perfect accompaniment to the culinary delights.
The Cornish Arms doesn’t take bookings, so just grab a dog-friendly table when you arrive.
Fido is welcome to join you in the two bar areas, and anywhere outside, just not in the main restaurant. Ask for a water bowl when you arrive to make sure your pooch stays hydrated while you try out a local ale or two.
A short but sweet sandwich menu is available at lunchtimes, including delights such as rump steak, onion jam and Dijon mustard, and Davidstow cheddar, tomato and beetroot chutney.
The evening menu is served daily from 5pm to 9pm, and all day until 8pm on Sundays.
The extra bits
Keep an eye out for their annual Beer & Mussel festival which takes place every March. 40 different beers and ciders are on offer, alongside entertainment across the weekend. You’ll be able to sample Rick’s favourite mussel recipes of course, from classic moules mariniére to Asian-inspired mussels with black bean, garlic and ginger. Dogs welcome too!
