The St Germans Community Shop is next door to the Eliot Arms and over the four years since it was formed we have had many volunteers' evenings there. Following last night's festivities we felt we should thank landlady, Sue Matthews and her team for their warm welcome and excellent food. They prepared a fresh and varied, home-cooked buffet for us... More

I stayed for two nights at the Eliot arms, my room was very clean, as was the pub/ restaurant. The lighting created a lovely atmosphere. The exterior is idyllic especially on such sunny days... Lucky they had plenty of ice :). The staff are very friendly especially the 19yr old bar maid who I found very witty. All the staff... More

We had really nice food. I had an excellent steak and ale pie and my daughter had excellent sausage and mash. Good value too at £20 for two meals and two lemonades. Under new management, this bodes well for the future.

Recently under new ownership. Had Sunday lunch and found a very warm welcome and a delicious plateful of roast beef and vegetables. The service was attentive, the atmosphere cosy and the price reasonable. We couldn't fault it.

We were staying in the Old Luggage Van for the week and came here for a Sunday lunch. Choice of 2 meats. It was very nice, service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We would recommend.

Food was absolutly disgusting, ordered Lasagne it was nothing like a lasagne it was layers of dry pasta and a plain mince filling no tomato or white sauce. Very disapointed :( Place was very dark and a little chilly had to leave coat on whilst eating and im normally a very warm person.
