Lewinnick Lodge

Hugging an enviable location high above the Atlantic, the Lewinnick Lodge is perched on a rugged, scrub-topped headland that curls from the southern end of Fistral Bay – Newquay’s most famous – and dog-friendly – surfing beach. Originally an 18th century cottage that has since posed as a tearoom, smugglers’ den and a lobster hold, these days the interior is contemporary and casual, welcoming drinkers, diners and dogs to kick back in sofas by the open fire or bag a sea-view window table.

There’s classic British and Mediterranean cuisine on the menu, ranging from Cornish fish pie, slow-roasted Cornish pork and lamb, to garlic and leek fishcakes and vegetable and mozzarella tart, as well as wraps and burgers and dishes to share. It’s a busy place from breakfast through to dinner, and on sunny days there are few better places to soak up Newquay’s coastline than from its huge, cliff-top sundeck.
