Excellent. Found this pub by accident when meeting friends in Cornwall. Probus is off the main road so your not likely to stumble on it. Make a point of going there. The staff at this dog friendly pub couldn't have been nicer and surprise, surprise the food is beautiful. Slightly limited menu but should be something to suit all tastes,... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here, all food is clearly freshly prepared. The pub has a lovely feel to it - friendly and relaxed - and the garden is lovely - spacious enough for you to find your own space! Food was promptly served and good selection on menu. We'll be back!

The pub itself is very smart inside, separate areas to eat and plenty of room outside. However, food took nearly an hour to come, not excusable for basic lunches even though a lot of us. Some of us had ploughman’s but even those took ages, perhaps waiting so all food could come together - but one member of party did... More

Thank you for your comment. We were told 15 people were coming for lunch, mainly wanting sandwiches,at 11am we had a phone call telling us there were actually 24 people all arriving at once.As nothing was pre - ordered Inevitably there would be a delay as most wanted hot meals. Not what we were lead to believe. A large number... More

As a local, I have frequented this pub on many occasions but I just wanted to thank the new owners for the lovely atmosphere they have created since their arrival earlier this year. It feels warm and welcoming and seems to be attracting more locals and visitors alike. We had a lovely meal with friends the other evening and the... More

We heard on the grapevine that the Hawkins Arms had new owners so we thought we'd try it. First impressions were "is this the same pub?" The interior hasn't changed but the atmosphere certainly has. We were greeted with a smile and a welcome second to none. The pub was buzzing and alive again. I had a pint of Tribute,... More

Great news to hear of the change of management and as a result we ventured in to see if improvements had been made whilst seeing family. A good sign was the curtains were open (before always shut) so we could see the real fire and a few people! Staff were nice and friendly and the atmosphere of the pub was... More

Just been for our first meal in the Hawkins Arms,having only taken over about a week ago, we were greeted within a few moments of walking in through the front door, lovely atmosphere, nice welcome, and the food was lovely, good portion, just what you need after working all day, and you don't want to cook.

We visited the Hawkins Arms a few times over the past few months just after it was refurbished. It is very comfortable and cosy inthe lounge bar. One nice thing is that it is dog friendly and the dogs get a free biscuit. The range of beers is good and the St Austell beers are well kept. However the food... More

I don't understand the other reviews! The pub has been refurbished and looks nice, i'll give them that but as for the atmosphere and service... well....Its like they just don't want to be there. When we ordered coffees at 11.40am after attending for a post christening drink and nibbles we were told that we would have to wait until EVERYONE... More
