Stayed here for only 3 nights when the couple running it were on holiday. I have to say that Rob and Lynda who were "looking after" the pub were fantastic. Very friendly, service excellent, great on local information and good food. All the staff were friendly and the locals made you feel as though you were one of them. Highly... More

We ate here on Friday evening at the end of our week's holiday after seeing an anonymous tip off on the noticeboard in our cottage about the food being lovely, and we were not disappointed!! Lovely home-cooked meals with very fresh and tasty ingredients, I enjoyed every last bit! We had visited the day before on the way past and... More

We stayed at The Cornish Arms whilst on a nostalgic tour of Devon and Cornwall and we were especially looking forward to our stay as this was where we became engaged. When I booked our one night stay I spoke to Felicity and told her of our plans. She was very pleasant on the phone and said she looked forward... More

After escaping the crowds at Port Isaac we opted for a drink and lunch at the Cornish Arms - and we're so pleased we did! Felicity and Jon were very welcoming and friendly and we had a delightful and beautifully fresh lunch. Then Felicity went out of her way to help us find accommodation in Padstow where we were heading,... More

This place is exactly what you'd expect a quaint cornish inn. On the plus points it has a lovely beer garden, nice old feel to the place and good atmosphere. The young blonde girl working there was a delight and did everything she could to please. The decor had been well thought out but had obviously been done sometime ago... More

We booked to stay here for a weeks holiday and unfortunately had to leave after a couple of days due to a family illness. The landlady was very unpleasant about this and had no concern for my sick parent. We were pleased to leave. The family room was over the bar, which didn't close until 12.30 both nights and next...

We found a lovely spacious room with ensuite as requested, clean and very comfortable. Our hosts Liz and John went out of their way to make us feel "at home", including a freshly prepared evening meal. Only 3 miles into Port Isaac from memory where we explored Doc Martin territory. Would not hesitate to recommend.

I really have no idea what all the negative reviewers are on about, though they seem in some cases particulalry pedantic. I travel frequently for Business and stay in top hotels all around the world, people should compare like with like. This is a charmingl Cornish Pub (which means dont expect sanitised modern and characterless) in a beautiful part of... More
