I have now eaten everything on the menu. Christof (Head Chef) and Peter (Sous Chef) are amazing. Menu is not ridiculously huge but everything on it is so well cooked it is always a pleasure to eat there. Specials are varied and always worth trying. Christof is a really good Chef and the Falmouth Arms is back on the map... More

Being Sunday the menu was for roast dinners only and turned out to be barely average. The Yorkshire pudding was tasteless, the beef chewy, the turkey lacking in flavour and the roast potatoes underdone. Shame because the pub itself has character.

As this is our local, I have already written a review, but now just need to share another with everybody. This friendly pub (dogs and children included) just gets better and better. We eat here at least once a week, and my husband pops in for an early drink whenever he's earned enough Brownie points. The food is fantastic, Krystoff... More

This is a traditional village pub with interesting, constantly changing Cornish ales; excellent wines by the glass - particularly the Malbec, the Pinot Grigio and the Sauvignon Blanc. But the tour de force is the kitchen. Tonight we had a mussels bisque, perfectly cooked fresh sardines and then crab claws - straight off the boat this morning. They could have... More

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...

Description
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.
