“Friendly staff, long wait for poor food that didn't resemble Thai Food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We waited twice the amount of time we were told to expect to wait for our takeaway (1 hour from time of ordering). The food was tasteless and didn't resemble Thai food in any way. Each stir fry (choice of approx six on the menu) was exactly the same, except for the meat chosen for each individual order. The chicken used in my wifes stir fry were offcuts of dark meat and the prawns in my sister in laws neon green curry were non existent. I wouldn't recommend the Thai food unfortunately. However, the Cornish Arms itself is a decent pub with friendly staff and good local beers.

“Cornish Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Can't believe some of the negative reviews about this place. We have stayed in a cottage down the lane on several occasions with our children and their partners and regularly have a meal/drink here. Food is excellent. Thai food cooked by native chefs is superb as is traditional English menu. Landlord and landlady are friendly and highly efficient as are staff. and, oh joy, they are dog friendly our dog Rufus is always welcomed.
Very period, old style - yes, but how wonderful, no garish modern decor. A traditional Cornish pub with lovely atmosphere and locals. Highly recommended.

“Lovely Thai food in Cornwall - who would have thought”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This pub was recommended to us by a B & B owner who holidays at Port Isaac in the summer. It really is a very cosy pub and we really found the hospitality very warm and enjoyed a long chat with Felicity about her and Jonney's travelling to Australia. My husband enjoyed Tintagal Ale and I had Doombar. We really enjoyed our meal. We enjoyed starters and main meal all of Thai food. We enjoy Thai food in Australia and this was excellent and equal to that of the best that we have had back home.
Thanks to Felicity and Jonney for your hospitality.
