Description: 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.

Lovely 2 course Sunday roast for £9.95. We wanted crackling so had a mixed pork and beef plate, great Yorkshire pudding from a Lanc'. Always welcoming and lovely clean surroundings. Reg was right!

Went today (Sunday 27th April 2014), one of several visits in the past few months. Sunday lunch, and as usual the food was superb. How does David manage to cram so much flavour into his food? Both David and Emmeline give you an extremely warm welcome. It's a pleasure to visit. In the past we have both tried different dishes,... More

We ate here for lunch today as a party of 4 adults and 3 children. We were made to feel very welcome and it was the best Sunday lunch that any of us had eaten in a very long time. All the meats our party chose were perfectly cooked and they came with plenty of fresh veg and delicious potatoes... More

Had a wonderful meal Friday night, tried the new chicken dish....delicious! Once again the food was an incredible standard...who needs chef Ramsey when we have chef David! Like the new wine additions too, what is there not to like?

Just got home from a delightful relaxed and INCREDIBLY GOOD VALUE Christmas Day lunch at this well run cosy pub. The food was superb, all prepared by David the landlord, ably assisted by Emmeline and their lovely helpful regular staff. The challenge of serving a largish number of customers with an important meal at the same time was dealt with... More

We were on holiday for a week and were staying locally so walked down to the pub a couple times for dinner during our stay. We were made to feel very welcome. It was quiet in there but it is a small village and midweek in November it's bound to be that way. Both times the meals we had were... More

Thank you for your kind review, it is always appreciated. As a small village pub it is indeed difficult in these present times but we always endeavour to provide a warm friendly atmosphere and serve the best quality food and drink we can and we believe our overall ratings reflect this. More

Well, I don't know where the last reviewer was from, but the meal my husband and I had for our Sunday lunch, plus a rather good south African red wine to go with our stunning beef was wonderful......brill Yorkshire puds! We have been to some other local pubs within a 10 mile radius and Dave's is by far the best... More

Went here for Sunday lunch on the strength of TA reviews. What a mistake! We booked a table as we thought that it would be busy based on the reputation, so we were surprised to find only 2 tables occupied at 1.00, and no-one at the bar. We were"greeted" by a very unfriendly landlady and a pleasant young barmaid who... More

Took my Aunt for a light lunch mid week at the end of August. She lives locally but had not eaten here and we thought that we would give it a go having seen the good reviews. We both wanted a 'lite bite' with a glass of nice wine and that's exactly what we got. We both thoroughly enjoyed the... More
