“Delicious home cooked food, decent portions and all under £10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

I have been staying in Hayle this week and eaten in The Cornish Arms 3 times this week as there were so many things on the menu I wanted to try. I will also be visiting on Sunday and I've heard excellent things about their carvery. The thick slices of home made ham are to die for and there is certainly no scrimping on the portions! The double cheeseburger is perfectly accompanied by bacon, cheese and fried onions and I also had to try a side of home made beer battered whole onion rings - the best I have ever tasted! For lunch today I had the beer battered fish goujons (3 big bits!) and a bowl of home made chips - far far better than the frozen rubbish every other pub seems to sell. All in all a brilliant pub with excellent food and friendly staff. Will defo be back when I come again at Christmas :-)

Thank you for your great comments - return custom is always a very good sign & 3 times in a week is fantastic. Hope you found the carvery as good as the weekday menu and good luck with the diet next week! We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Cornwall.

“Huge portions and amazing value for money with friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

We found this gem while on holiday in Hayle. The very friendly, smiling and helpful staff recommended we book as it is very popular and can get very busy on Sundays. They were also very accommodating towards my dietary needs and provided gluten free gravy for me. The food was plentiful and lovely. The meat; (2 meats - from a selection of 4 - for less than £7) it was cooked to perfection and just melted in the mouth. The best meat from a carvery we've ever had. We were so full we couldn't even find room for a desert. Shame as i wouldve loved to sample that too. (maybe a good excuse to return?) Would definitely recommended this pub. small and friendly and a great great Sunday roast!!! what more could you ask for?

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. The staff have a vital role in making our customers visit a pleasant one and it is very good to know that they are getting it right. The Sunday Carvery has indeed become very popular here. I hope you can pay us a return visit and perhaps sample something off the weekday menu - leaving room for a dessert of course!

“Delicious food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We had a lovely meal at The Cornish Arms, Hayle on a very busy Saturday in August, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and the service excellent - I also have to add, the after dinner coffee was the best we've tasted in a restaurant for some time, definitely recommended! We will be returning for another delicious meal on our next visit to sunny Cornwall.

“Nice food, average atmosphere not cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We are a family of 6 so value for money is important. The food was actually very nice but expensive as it is very much a pub atmosphere. There are nicer places in Hayle to eat.

I am pleased that you found the food nice but have to take issue with your other comments. The prices are far from expensive - all meals are under £10 and the childrens meals are no more than £5.95 & come with a free ice cream! You would struggle to find a cheaper option for a full 2 course meal in most fast food outlets! You only have to read the majority of the reviews to see that this pub is actually one of the best places to eat in Hayle.
