ome and enjoy delicious pub food together with our finest local ales and fine wines in our historic freehouse village pub. Our excellent cuisine, varied menu and welcoming ambience will combine to provide you with a memorable dining experience. The Falmouth Arms is an historic 17th Century pub situated in the Cornish village of Ladock, located between St Austell and Truro. 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. Embracing our long heritage, we endeavour to strike the balance between the historic charm of the building, with a contemporary freshness. We are open for food 7 days a week, lunchtimes (excluding Mondays) and evenings. We recommend booking a table for weekends and holidays. We have our own large car park providing easy and safe parking, with a sheltered beer garden and a bookable small function room/private dining area. Well behaved dogs on leads are also very welcome.

Great food

We popped in on a week night a couple of weeks ago to get a late meal and were blown away by the quality of the dish we were served. Billed by the new chef/manager as the daily special it was a most delicious shoulder of lamb with accompanying vegetables. Well worth a visit. The ambience could... read more

Booked for New Year's Eve 2015/16. Very poor choice of Menu. Arrived at 19:30 Had main course ... then handed menu for dessert selection. Left around 21:00 without anyone coming to take our dessert order. Very poor service. Apologies were given when we were paying our bill.

A fantastic New Years Eve celebration! The atmosphere in this pub is just what you want from a quaint little village pub however last night exceeded all expectations the best New Year I've had.

Heading back from Truro, and intrigued to explore how the change of management at The Falmouth Arms Ladock was faring, we decided to pop in for lunch. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Paul and Trill who soon put us at ease with their friendly hospitality. Whilst perusing the menu, with pre-lunch drinks, we were shortly introduced to chef...

We went to the Falmouth Arms with friends for a meal the other weekend. We had heard great things as it is now under new management, however we did not feel it lived up to the high praise of many of the other Tripadvisor reviews. The pub is fairly local to us, and we probably go there a few times... More

This is what we've all been waiting for. The pub has just changed hands and what a transformation. The staff are brilliant and the chef Christof is absolutely amazing. We had a Sunday lunch today and found out that they are serving from midday to 9pm. It meant we didn't have to rush around. The food was so tasty and... More
