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.

We stayed in Ladock for a week early Sept & ate twice at the Falmouth Arms. The food is wonderful. We had a burger each for our first visit, absolutely gorgeous, char-grilled with so much flavour. Then we had slow braised ox cheek & battered monkfish tails the second time. Our plates were empty on both occasions. Toby the Springer... More

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again when next on holiday. Home made on the premises that is some good burger isn't it! The musty smell you referred to was the pile of logs by the stone fireplace, a consequence of having open fires which make it cosy in... More

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
