Thanks to Bev Teague for discovering
this location!  It's a farmhouse along a
road just south of Boscastle.
.

Martin is seated at an outdoor cafe and tries to
order pasta, and then soup, and finally chili, but
the server insists that they are out of everything
he attempts to order.

This outdoor cafe is the terrace at the Slipway
Hotel.  The terrace sits right at the intersection of
Fore Street and Church Hill and overlooks The
Platt and the harbour.

Martin tries to fill his car with petrol, but is told they
are out.  This station is on New Road at the top of
the village.

Note that in the screenshot to the left you can see the
Headlands Hotel in the distance.  This now closed
hotel was used as a location several times, notably
as Radio Portwenn in Series 1 and The Wilson Hotel
in Series 3.  The hotel is actually located on the other
side of the harbour at Port Gaverne.
.
.
I've noticed that the recent pictures of the
petrol station show the pumps have been
removed.  It now appears to be just an auto
repair facility (picture on the right).
.
.
.
Martin finally tries to get rid of the dog by throwing a stick over
the cliff, hoping that the dog will run after it, but that fails when
the dog just sits down in the grass and stares at him.  

Just as he realizes his plan hasn't worked, he's interruped by
Elaine's dad and his fiancé going for a stroll.  He embarrassingly
tosses away the additional sticks.

This scene takes place at the top of the hill overlooking the
harbour.  The area is called "Lobber Point" and is accessed by
climbing a steep set of stairs at the top of Roscarrock Hill.  This
open area has been used as a location in the show several times.

Martin, carrying a wrapped fish, comes walking out of the doorway next to The Mote - this doorway will often
be used as the door to the local pub.  Mark is standing on The Platt, in front of the Mote, drinking a pint and
asks Martin to join him, but Martin refuses and walks away.  
.

.
As Martin is walking past The Platt, he sees
Bobby Richardson kicking around a football
with his mates and asks if he is feeling better.
.
.
.
.
.

As Martin is driving back from Aunt
Joan's farm he discovers that the dog
somehow got back into his car and is
now headed back to Portwenn with him.

You can see from his position on the
road that he is on the road that runs
between Port Isaac and the farm and
Port Isaac is visible in the distance.

Louisa runs into Aunt Joan at the beach where they have both parked their cars.  Louisa complains to Joan about
Martin's treatment of Roger, but Joan reminds Louisa that she was on the committee that appointed him.
.
.
You can see the wall of the Fish Cellar
behind Joan and Louisa
.
The beach used to be a main parking area for
the village, but you had to make sure to
move your car before high tide (which
happens twice a day).  The picture below
shows the consequences if you didn't make
it in time (this also happened to Ross in
S1E1 of Doc Martin).

In 2010, the Port Isaac Council built a new
car park at the top of the village and closed
the beach to parking.  The only exceptions
now are license holders who have been
granted special permission.
.
Both the exterior and the interior scenes for this wedding were filmed in
St Knet's Church in Lesnewth, which is east of Boscastle.

It's pretty obvious that they used the interior of this farmhouse
in the filming.  As Martin comes through the front door, you
can see the small square window right next to the door and
glimpses of the white painted stairwell right across from the
door.  And then, halfway up the stairs there is a partial view
of a large window.

In the Street View below, see the circles around the window
next to the door and the window in the stairwell on the right
side of the home.
.
It looks as if the window in Bobby's room might be the
window circled above on the left side of the house.
.
The two small windows flanking the
fireplace in the kitchen match the
windows on the back of the house.  
Notice the chimney above that would
lead down to the fireplace.
