Very friendly Landlady made us welcome to our last minute booking in room 5 which she had described as small! we would have struggled with more than a one night stay! however Rooms 1 & 2 are fine and would recommend them for a visit as the kings Arms is situated in an excellent position above the Village of Mousehole...

A pleasant greeting on arrival from the young barmaid, then we made our choice from a good and varied menu. My wife had nut roast and veggies and I had the Kings arms burger with lovely chips and coleslaw which was superb in taste and portion size. The waitress who brought our food was wonderfully friendly despite it getting busier... More

If you love comfort, friendly people, and places with carachter, this is the right choice! Me and my parents remained 2 nights in The Kings Arms, an old Pub located in a little place just above the beautiful Mousehole. You can either walk (10 minutes) or drive up to the hill and you will find the hotel just next to... More

Woow this place is incredible. The Inn/B&B is part of a local pub that must be at least 300 years old. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, with everything you could need. Breakfast is very good, served in the Lounge downstairs. This is a very quaint place and if you are looking for a quiet piece of history this is... More

Had eaten here previously so wasn't sure what to expect this time as previously was not impressed. Need not have worried as the meal we had was excellent. Steak was cooked as requested and trio of fish was lovely. Would definitely recommend. Friendly staff as well.

I recently stayed here for two nights with my husband and we were extremely impressed with the accommodation, the food and the lovely hospitality afforded by the hardworking staff. The pub is of the traditional type with a good selection of beers and ciders (prices are quite steep but this was the case for all Penzance and Mousehole pubs). However,... More

THE GOOD: Excellent food / friendly, helpful staff / squidgy pillows / snugly quilt / quiet location / beautiful countryside & beaches / quaint villages - Mousehole is within walking distance but you do need good walking legs for the uphill return. THE BETTER: Unexpected treat in a 'Cornish Ceilidh' on Tuesday evenings. THE BEST: Another unexpected treat when Mousehole... More

Stopped here for a quick tea and it ticked all the boxes. Lovely friendly welcome when we arrived from the chap behind the bar and our waitress was very good considering we had two very young children to contend with as well. We had the trio of cornish fish which was succulent and soft, steak cooked perfectly to our liking,... More

Fantastic food & service as usual today. We can't find anywhere to beat your roasts. The roast potatoes & meat were amazing as where the 4 fresh vegetables. The white chocolate cheesecake was a massive hit also. See you all soon :)

The staff here were so helpful. They allowed us to order food late on Bank Holiday Sunday after we had driven six hours to stay in Senna only to find the accomodation we had booked was awful. As a family of four with two children we were distraught when we arrived but the staff here were amazing. We all had... More
