Out in Zennor, near the Minack Theatre in the cliffs, is The Gurnard’s Head, a dog-friendly dining pub situated between St Just and St Ives. Their ethos is “the simple things in life done well”.
By that, they mean flavoursome food, cooked well using ingredients sourced locally. Foods foraged from the hedgerows and the water’s edge, such as samphire and sea beet may play a part, so it is something rather special.
The team supports its local community, sources sustainable products, and is open all year round to welcome you and your four-legged furry friends.
It makes sense that your dog is most welcome here, too, being so close to the sea and energising coastal walks which attract dog walkers.
Call in to be refreshed or warmed as the conditions require, when a warmly welcoming pub is just what you need. They do ask you to book a dog-friendly table for eating as many people take their dogsso you can ensure you have a space.
Lunches here vary from baba ganoush to a rillette, from gnocchi to a ham hock – and of course, there are various fishy gurnard options.
