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.

The food was good and decent value for money, and the service was ok. But even though it was a Sat eve, the place was almost empty, so no atmosphere, which obviously isn't something the owners can do much about, but why are people not going there? Also I don't mind dogs and have no problem being greeted by the... More

We had been trying to find somewhere to meet up for a family lunch the Sunday before Christmas in between St Blazey and Redruth so it was about half way for both families . Pubs we tried in Truro were already fully booked so someone suggested The Falmouth Arms in Ladock. We rang and booked a table and on the... More

Good old pub serving traditional food. Located off the beaten track, plenty of parking opposite. Good service even if it was a little slow.. Delicious food.

We decided to revisit again (2nd Dec) and were not disappointed, in fact Chef had added to... More

Have stayed in Ladock a couple of times when visiting relatives in Newquay; as other reviewers have said, it is well worth the trip. Well kept ale, a good wine list especially my favourite , the Hungarian rose! Food is sublime, everything we have eaten here has been of a high standard, both in terms of quality of ingredients and... More

We stayed near here recently and gave it a try on a couple of occasions. The pub is dog friendly and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was generally OK although the fish and chips were not a large portion for the price compared with other pubs in the locality. Beers were well kept.

Very friendly welcome and fantastic food. Very reasonably priced and good sized portions. Dogs were welcomed with a woof from the resident Springer spaniel. Would recommend it to everyone.
