David and Emmeline welcome you to our 17th Century pub situated in Ladock, at the heart of Cornwall. The Falmouth Arms is a welcoming village pub with a warm and traditional bar area and a more contemporary dining area. We serve good home cooked food using local produce wherever possible and offer a range of Cask Marque accredited Cornish real ales. Our menu includes Vegetarian and Gluten Free dishes as well as local meat, game and fish. Ladock is an unspoilt village set between Truro, St Austell and Newquay with easy access to the A30 and 8 miles from Newquay Airport, ideal for exploring the whole of Cornwall. The Ladock road was one of the early routes into West Cornwall and passed through the beautiful wooded Ladock Valley, The Falmouth Arms was one of a series of coaching inns along the way, where horses could be changed. We have a large car park opposite and are a regular meeting place for a range of motoring and classic vehicle groups, local clubs and societies and often a stopping point for Steam and Traction engines.

We visited Falmouth Arms New Year's Eve with group of friends as we were holidaying nearby and wanted somewhere to eat and celebrate with nice meal and good atmosphere etc. unfortunately we were very disappointed not because of the food as the chef obviously made an effort, but because of the unwelcoming atmosphere, lack of attention to detail, a hostess...

I visited The Falmouth Arms as part of a organised meal with family. It was close to home, but we'd never visited before, and seeing the good reviews on TripAdvisor, thought we'd go for it. Didn't think it was as good as most of the reviews. It wasn't bad food by any stretch, but I wasn't raving mad about it... More

Just want to say; The slow cooked beef cheek was wonderful. The Lamb koftas were great. Chef says he cooks things the way he likes them. Well, I like them too and I think many of you will agree. That's all.

After having had a few disappointing experiences in local pubs this holiday, we tried the Falmouth Arms during a journey back to our caravan site. We looked at Trip Advisor in an attempt to prevent more disappointment and the reviews were good so we took a chance. I can only say 'thank you Trip Advisor' because we had a great... More

Honest pub grub in a homely Cornish pub. I had fish and chips with mushy peas (I was feeling basic) and was not disappointed. My girlfriend had the lamb kofte and described it as "decent homemade pub grub". Everything was clearly made from scratch and was the service was very personable (I was treated to special Cornish vinegar that was... More

Stopped in for a family evening meal. Food was lovely. I would highly recommend the specials. The BBQ pork fillet melted in the mouth. My lamb kofte meatballs in spicy tomato sauce with spicy beans was to die for! Shall definitely eat here again. The Waitress was very cheerful and helpful too.

Visited on a Monday night to be greeted with a warm atmosphere filled with the unmistakably comforting melody of good, honest human chatter. 3 real ales on, all sampled, all kept lovingly (also nice to walk into a Cornish pub and be greeted with beers other than the ubiquitous choice of Doom Bar or Tribute. Although the latter was available... More
