The Eliot Arms served as our initial welcome to our two-week stay in St. Germans...and a warm welcome it was. The landlady and the pub's other staff were friendly and cheery on every visit. We ate at the pub twice, and the food was always tasty...generous portions with a home-cooked flavour. Great to get chance to chat with some of... More

The landlady was very friendly and chatted to us for some time. Dogs are also allowed on leads in the bar area under control. If in the area... More

Wonderful village pub with excellent home-cooked food. Steak and ale pie, fish pie and fish cakes excellent. Very friendly bar staff. It made a great evening out whilst staying in the Old Luggage Van on St. Germans station.

Arrived for two night stay at 8.30pm, to be informed the kitchen, which we had been told was open until 9pm, was overworked and was not serving any food. Very noisy bar (below room) continued until well past midnight both nights. On trying to get pre-arranged breakfast for 8.30am, found bar door still locked at that time. Room not made... More

We were staying at the Railholiday (Old Luggage Van) next to St Germans railway station. Our walk to to Eliot Arms was perfect, without having to... More

We were staying nearby and visited the Eliot Arms for a special meal to mark the end of our stay. We were both very impressed by the quality of the food served which was locally-prepared; I can vouch for the quality of the 'steak and ale pie' as being very good indeed.

Very tradional pub which has kept historical brasses and artefacts, always love that type of pub. Great to see Sue & Courtney again, very impressed with the range of food on the menu at lunchtime. Lovely burgers - we'll be back :-)
