We popped in for lunch having never been here before and were immediately made to feel really welcome. The roast lamb was delicious and the cauliflower and leek cheese was amazing! As was the chocolate tart I had for pud. A special thanks for being so nice to our dogs.

We called here today for Sunday lunch. Very friendly staff, great well kept beer and a superb meal. Great size portions and nothing too much trouble from the staff. Also dog friendly which is a must for us with two basset hounds. If you are in the area well worth a visit.

We visited on Sunday with our to friends to try the Sunday lunch, something that we do every few weeks around Cornwall. We all had the roast beef and it was the best we've had in the last 12 months of our Sunday lunch excursions. The meat was very tender, lots of well cooked vegetables and the taste overall was...

Previous owners specialised in his stake, sadly the new chef specialises in seafood and after two attempts still could not do a good stake it was Cheney and over cooked. If you can't do stake don't sell it. The sea food was good. This Is why I say it's average and not poor. Please bare this in mind I will... More

A very friendly and atmospheric local Inn. Food well beyond the usual pub food you expect. Dean and his team, Kristoff an Peter, create local sea food dishes that you must try! Best mussels and crab, cooked fresh, were the best we had for quite a while. Can highly recommend a visit and perhaps a longer stay in the area... More

We ate and drank in the Falmouth Arms every night whilst in Cornwall. The chef asked us what we wanted to eat for our last night. We ordered crab. They were huge. The food is varied and delicious, the staff and customers are so friendly. We felt like locals. What a great spot.

Visited here again last evening with yet more house guests to show them our lovely local. We decided to eat and our friends are somewhat foodie! The Moules were outstanding, the biggest I've seen and the most flavoursome I've ever had. Everyone else's meals were equally as good and we all left feeling very happy. Great service as always too.... More

Staying locally for a week, we tried it the first evening and were blown away by the fresh plaice and moules - the best I have ever tasted - with vegetables cooked to perfection. The staff couldn't do enough to help, even on a very busy night with 4 birthday parties! We were so impressed we returned twice more during... More

Come and enjoy delicious pub food together with our finest local ales and fine wines in our historic freehouse village pub. Our excellent cuisine, varied menu and welcoming ambience will combine to provide you with a memorable dining experience. The Falmouth Arms is an historic 17th Century pub situated in the Cornish village of Ladock, located between St Austell and Truro. 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. Embracing our long heritage, we endeavour to strike the balance between the historic charm of the building, with a contemporary freshness. We are open for food 7 days a week, lunchtimes (excluding Mondays) and evenings. We recommend booking a table for weekends and holidays. We have our own large car park providing easy and safe parking, with a sheltered beer garden and a bookable small function room/private dining area. Well behaved dogs on leads are also very welcome.
