There are two pieces of good news for dog owners holidaying in Newquay. The first piece is that the legendary Fistral Beach is dog friendly the whole year round, and the second is that your pet will be welcome at Bodhi’s Beach Cafe and Bistro, a beachside bar with what many describe as the best views in Newquay.
You’ll find Bodhi’s tucked into the cliffs that back South Fistral Beach, and it’s as relaxed as you’d expect given its perfect location for surfers! Settle into a spot on the balcony and enjoy breakfast, lunch or an evening meal with the UK’s most beautiful surfing beach as the backdrop.
Most of the menu’s dishes are created with local produce and ingredients, and the daily specials include fresh fish. As parking’s free at the end of town closest to Bodhi’s many stop off to savour the views before they return to their cars, so you’ll find surfers fresh from the waves, families pink from a day on the sand and couples relaxing after a long walk.
One of the bistro’s TripAdvisor reviewers says “if you’re after great views and good home cooking then this Newquay nugget will serve you well”, and others recommend trying some of the local beers served while you’re there too. Favourites found on the menu include steamed mussels, the Bodhi’s burger, fish and chips and Cornish ice cream.
