6 Great Places to Eat with Outdoor Space in North Cornwall and Devon

The 12th of April saw the easing of restrictions across the country and with staycations back on the cards, we’re delighted to be opening our doors again to conscientious travellers and welcoming you back to Cornwall.  We aren’t the only place to be reopening however, and in this post we suggest 6 great places to eat with beer gardens that will be able to serve you outside.  ) Molesworth Arms – Pyworthy, Holsworthy, EX22 6SU

Here you can find all the character and cosiness of a historic pub with a beautiful outdoor garden area. They will be providing outside-only service from the 16th of April, but they ask that you make sure to reserve table in advance. This establishment is, unfortunately, NOT dog-friendly. 

2) The Rydon Inn – Holsworthy, EX22 7HU

This lovely inn is now open 7 days a week with food being served daily between 12 & 2pm and evening meals from 6pm. Dogs are currently only welcome to sit with you on the benches of their grassed area and must be kept on leads at all times; this is due to the current situation and having reduced tables at present.

3) Cowslip Café  – New House Farm, Launceston, PL15 8JX

Here you can order light lunches, Cornish cream teas, coffee and delicious cake. They ask that you come to the back door and wait by the cow (yes, the cow) to be called to your table. Dogs are not permitted inside the cafe, except for guide dogs; however they do have seating outside where dogs are welcome.

4) The Old Wainhouse Inn – Wainhouse Corner, Bude, EX23 0BA

A comfortable, relaxing and friendly place for both locals and holiday makers alike serving traditional homemade pub style meals using locally sourced ingredients. This establishment is dog-friendly which is always nice for us to hear.

5) Preston Gate Inn – Poughill Road, Poughill, Bude EX23 9ET

With their outside tables now open they will serve anything from the bar and their delicious new menu directly to your table. Their opening hours are from ‘12 until its too chilly, 7 days a week’. They are a family friendly and dog friendly pub, both inside and out – although inside will only be reopening on the 17th of May.

6) The Archer Arms – Lewannick, Launceston, PL15 7QD

This little village pub serves traditional pub food, good local real ales and a variety of other alcoholic and soft drinks. Make sure to check their opening hours if you’re planning a visit as they vary slightly. The outside space isn’t spectacular – gazebos on tarmac, but they have a reputation for great food and are fully a dog friendly pub; unsurprising considering they have a pair of pub dogs called Duke and Luna.

These are just a sample of the many wonderful places to eat locally that will be able to serve you outside. 

However, there are plenty of other options if you venture to Bude.  If you find any others that you can particularly recommend, we’d love to hear them!
