MetiNews.Com - Your four-legged friends don't have to stay at home when you catch up with others
Breaking News ! After twelve months where our favourite places to eat and drink have been closed more than they’ve been open, it’s safe to say that many of us are practically foaming at the mouth to be able to go out again. The upcoming changes to the lockdown restrictions on Monday (April 12) mean that while we’ll have to be outdoors and reliant on the famously unpredictable Cornish weather until at least May 17 - when we can go indoors too - we can once again enjoy fine dining and drinking with up to five other people or another household. But what of our constant companions over the last 12 months, our four-legged canine friends? Does this mean that once again they’ll be left scratching at the door waiting for our return or left at the mercy of the cat’s newly reestablished reign of terror? Thankfully, when it comes to some places they can come too as there is a range of dog-friendly pubs and cafes reopening their doors to outdoor visitors on April 12 meaning you can enjoy the return of seeing people eye-to-eye rather than screen-to-screen. We’ve scoured the internet to find some of the venues about to burst into life again in the coming days and using both Tripadvisor and the Dog-Friendly Cornwall website we’ve put together a list of some of the places reopening. We’ve also checked the social media pages of each individual venue to make sure they’re opening on April 12 - as other venues known for being dog friendly aren’t opening until May.

Cornish Arms, Hayle The Cornish Arms in Hayle, complete with a beer garden is one of the venues reopening on April 12. It’s been rated as a dog-friendly venue by reviewers on Tripadvisor, with one reviewer saying back in 2015: “Enjoyed a nice light lunch here. As vegans, there wasn't much to choose from on the menu, but the usual chips and jacket potato with beans. But it was all still very nice. “Pub appears to be a local favourite. Love to see dogs are welcome!!! We hope to spend more time here once we move to Hayle next month. Perhaps we can entice them to add some more vegan option.” Poldhu Beach Cafe, Poldhu A cafe on a very dog-friendly beach, what’s not to like? You can get a range of traditional cafe meals to take away and enjoy on the striking beach which it shares and being open 363 days a year from 9.30am to 5pm, you’re sure to not be left disappointed. Driftwood Spars, St Agnes The Driftwood Spars in St Agnes is worth a visit in itself, not least due in part to its own on-site microbrewery. While the main pub will remain shut until May, the venues sizeable outdoor space means that you can enjoy all it offers along with your best friends. Wainhouse Inn, Bude Central to the offerings at Wainhouse Inn, Bude is a restaurant offering fresh local produce with the butcher, also a beef and sheep farmer residing in nearby Kilkhampton.
