There’s a reason The Pandora Inn has become one of Cornwall’s most iconic dog friendly destination-pubs; it’s one of those crowd-pleasing spots that could quite happily rely on its views alone, but thankfully, oodles of passion and energy lie behind the deliciously hearty menus and super-friendly service.
It’s a brilliant location with an impressive pontoon that stretches out into the waters of Restronguet Creek, close to the Carrick Roads, north of Falmouth. An enviable position in south Cornwall, it’s one of our favourite spots to grab a light lunch or a hearty supper after walking along the many Creekside paths, woodland tracks and roads with Partridge at our heels.
A traditional pub with heritage at the core, with its dreamy estuary views and original features, it’s a must-visit for you and your four-legged friend when exploring this area of south Cornwall. Cosy and inviting, parts of the Inn date back to the 13 th century – think flagstone floors, low beamed ceilings and thatched roof – a proper old pub that oozes centuries-old character and charm.
At the Pandora Inn dogs are welcomed with enthusiasm (and treats) in the downstairs bar, making it an ideal spot to visit with your canine pal in tow.
There’s a host of great walking routes around the pub, weaving around Restronguet Creek, with some spectacular views along the River Fal, passing pretty cottages and the impressive house at Tregunwith Wood; begin from Mylor Bridge, Greatwood Quay or the Pandora Inn, and meander through Restronguet Barton and Restronguet Weir.
Your dog will be in their element along muddy woodland tracks and soggy Creekside paths. For detailed routes and maps, check out the walks under the ‘things to do’ section of the pub’s website where you will see some brilliant routes (ranging from 3.5 – 5.5 miles) set out by outdoor writer, Sue Viccars who
specialises in walks across the south west.
It is recommended to do a circular walk, beginning elsewhere than the pub and stopping for refreshments half way as the carpark is notoriously busy.
What’s not to love about The Pandora Inn, set on the side of the creek with lots of salty sniffs, a brilliant long jetty and dog-friendly bar with treats. There are some great walks to explore for us four-legs too. Advice to all humans – bring wellies! Paws crossed we’ll be back at this brilliant waterside pub before too long.
