The charming and super dog-friendly, St Tudy Inn is located in the picturesque village of St Tudy, on the river Camel, approximately five-miles northeast of Wadebridge – it’s one of those places you stumble upon, then don’t’ want to leave! The beautifully renovated 17th century Inn has recently been taken over by Harbour Brewing Co and a with a new head chef onboard, possesses some outstanding culinary credentials, with a cosy vibe throughout.
St Tudy Inn is for those in search of somewhere to linger with their four-legged friends in tow, where style and comfort are cleverly merged; think understated luxury, a stripped-back elegance with an effortless style, where contemporary flavours are at the core. There is one dog friendly room available, where you will find a blanket and a dog bowl, along with plenty of treats.
With an array of well-kept thatches, St Tudy is home to an old church, a village-store and a lovely circular walk from the village centre to Wetheram – a scenic 4km, taking you through woodlands and fields.
The much-loved pub provides a charming inland retreat for a Cornish escape, with endless options for dog walking, either visiting the coast or embracing the wilderness of the moorland.
Situated on the river Camel, approximately five-miles northeast of Wadebridge, St Tudy is a 20-minute drive to Polzeath, which we can highly recommend if your dog enjoys a swim! We particularly love walking up the headland, named ‘The Rumps’ for a view of the surrounding area from Polzeath beach. Walking to Daymer Bay and back is another favourite route.
The pub is also 25-minutes from Port Isaac, a half-hour drive from Rock and Padstow and just ten-minutes to Bodmin Moor, where you will find plenty of dog-friendly walking tracks. It’s worth noting that Polzeath and Port Isaac beaches are dog-friendly all year round, making them perfect for your furry pals, with Padstow being of the most dog friendly towns in the county, with many dog-friendly café’s, bars and restaurants.
Dogs are welcome to join you in the bar area, as well as in one half of the restaurant. With new Head Chef, James Lean onboard, you can expect pub classics with a contemporary twist, showcasing the finest seasonal produce from the surrounding area; think shell-on prawns, line-caught hake fillet, beer battered fish and chips, and 12 oz sirloin steak with
hand cut chips.
Kasper, the friendliest co-owner and manager will spoil your pal rotten with attention and treats throughout. For those preferring to dine out, we can recommend The Atlantic Bar and Kitchen, also owned by Harbour Brewing Co, situated in Polzeath – the perfect spot for lunch or dinner after a blustery beach walk, serving small plates of freshest seafood, healthy salad bowls, wood-fired pizza and tasty pasta dishes, washed down with an iconic Harbour beer. If you’re there on a Sunday, treat yourself to a delicious roast with all the trimmings.
There is an additional charge of £10 per night for your dog to stay too.

I loved my stay at St Tudy Inn, what a pawfect spot for the night – it was cosy and warm, with the friendliest host, who thanks to all the fuss and treats, became my new best friend by the end of our trip! The breakfast sausage is every dog’s dream and the peaceful village is home to some great footpaths for morning walkies, as well as the great coastal spots nearby, and the wild Bodmin Moor, a stick’s throw away, where I got to run free!
Paws crossed we visit again soon.
