A modern estuary hangout for grownups with dreamy harbourside views, INDIdog has quickly become a favourite among Falmouth locals and visitors. The contemporary glass-fronted restaurant ticks all the boxes for a delicious lunch, coffee or dinner with your canine pal at your side.
Four-legged friends will be outrageously spoilt with under-floor heating, a beach within a few seconds walk, gravy bones and pawsecco. All dogs must inform their humans that there is a serious love for dogs at this friendly neighbourhood restaurant, where you can grab a coffee, light bite or three-course supper.
Enjoy quality modern British food with a focus on locally sourced Cornish produce and a fuss-free service that is friendly and informative. The 110-cover space has a clean modern aesthetic with indoor and outdoor terrace seating options with spectacular views across the estuary – a gorgeous spot for lunch and glass of pale rosé. The kitchen is headed up by Alfie Hazliftt – he and his team use local and sustainable produce to create dishes like fresh day-boat sole with parsley emulsion, prawn and lemon butter and Primrose pork fillet, coriander & chilli, sesame teryaki. There’s also a great selection of local Cornish ales and gins, and an impressive cocktail and mocktail list including a NOhito – a too-good-not-to-try replica of the zesty infusion.
Open during the summer months, overlooking the harbour you also will find INDIpup, a pop-up bar-trailer, serving draught, local gins, batch cocktails and soft drinks – the perfect spot on a sunny day, taking in the harbour views.
Dogs are welcomed with open arms by affable owners Simon and Vanessa, who’s popular eatery takes the namesake of their beloved black lab, INDI.
Located right on the harbourside, your dog will take seconds to sniff out the seaweed- cladded beach, along with several others seasonally dog-friendly beaches in walking distance and ample walking routes along the South West Coast Path. We’re huge fans blue flag, Gyllyngvase Beach – a beautiful bay about 20 minutes’ walk across to the opposite side of town with a great dog-friendly beach café at the edge of the sands. Walk a little further around the coast and you’ll find Swanpool Beach – starting at Gyllngvase, take the coastal path south towards Swanpool – a great route for your dog to explore rocky coves, inlets and grassy hills along the way.
We also love the walk up to Pendennis Castle – around 25 minutes – where you can walk around the headland and pick up the South West Coast Path to exercise your hound.
INDIdog is a superb space to for us four-legs to enjoy, set right on the harbour, oozing canine comfort, I enjoyed whiffs of sea air amidst some tempting foodie sniffs. A relaxed spot serving top-notch food, I received a friendly welcome from Simon and was fussed over by the team who brought me a water bowl and plenty of tasty treats.
My humans seemed very happy to feast over lots of fresh plates of food and was excited to trial the fish of the day which I’d happily return for. Paws crossed we visit again soon!
