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.

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

Nice village pub, with great food and friendly owners. Been here a couple of times now and the food is excellent and at a very good price. The steak was very nice and cooked to perfection! Ideal to stop off between Truro and Newquay.

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 called in for lunch around a month ago and I was pleasantly surprised with the menu on offer. We were warmly greeted by landlady Emmeline and found the quality of food excellent ( chef is the landlord) with some surprising dishes available. We decided to revisit again (2nd Dec) and were not disappointed, in fact Chef had added to... More
