A warm welcome, pleasant staff, tasty lunch, huge choice of dishes, delicious desserts and a good cup of coffee to finish, it doesn't get much better than that!

Demanding diners, we have had lunch with family and/or friends at the Sportsman's Arms on half-a-dozen or so occasions over the past few months, and have found it to be so consistently good that it has become a firm favourite. We've come to expect, as the norm, obliging and friendly service, a good atmosphere, a varied menu, excellent fare, portions... More

We had lunch here after reading the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. It's not much to look at from the outside, and is small and cosy inside. The service was very friendly and the food was superb. The portions were very generous, so we didn't have space for pudding! My wife thought the homemade beef burger was the best one she'd... More

Near Penzance? Hungry and thirsty? Then make your way to The Sportsmans Arms in Heamoor. The food was excellent, plenty of it and beautifully cooked. Also a lovely pint, with guest real ales on draught. The landlord and his staff were also very pleasant, friendly, and made us most welcome for both visits. Even the local customers were friendly. Sorry,... More

Excellent service. Food delicious. A couple of things weren't available however enough to choose from anyway. My only criticism was the Eton mess had no meringue in. But fresh strawberries were lovely. Would definitely recommend if you were in the area.

Great food (the home-made Eton Mess is to die for!), man-size portions, friendly and efficient service, good atmosphere, and an expertly-kept pint. All this from a village pub. Magnificent - one of only a very few pub-restaurants I can recommend to others with confidence.

To return to a restaurant following a great meal often, in my experience, results in a degree of disappointment, but not so a second visit to the Sportsmans Arms. Three of us enjoyed a superb lunch here, and again it was tremendous value for not a lot of money. I can personally vouch for the seafood pie and Eton Mess.... More

Great meal with very tasty locally sourced ingredients. Seriously big portions, giving fantastic value for money. Coffee delicious too. Friday night is steak night; Wednesday night is curry night. Recent menu change giving even more choices.

Had a lovely meal at the Sportsmans. Generous helpings, service with a smile and reasonable prices. Bit more choice for non meat eaters would be good.

Top marks for the Sportsmans Arms: for the quality of the food, generous helpings; hospitality, keeping a great pint, and all-round value. We will return – and soon.
