After a couple of nights eating at The Wellington Hotel where I was staying, I felt like something a little fancier. The sign outside the King's Arms just over the square drew me in. To paraphrase: "Nothing frozen or bought in, all sauces, stocks, chutneys, etc made in our kitchen". I popped in to enquire and look at the menu. Two of my favourite dishes and at very reasonable prices - I had to try it.
Wine list was comprehensive but compact and well priced but I decided to stick with the excellent St Austell beer. Jellied Ham (Jambon Persille) and mild piccalilli with home-made bread was a revelation at £4.50. Followed by Duck Confit with Celeriac mash and cabbage at £10.75 was good. Juicy and tender but I prefer the skin to be crisp. The whole effect was let down a little by the young, and presumably inexperienced, waitress asking "Can I get you any sauces with that"? Well, it is a pub.
Superb selection of Cornish Cheeses (pick any three for £4.50) with biscuits. My request for a glass of port caused a problem - there was none! I settled for a glass of Merlot. My recollection of individual prices may not be entirely accurate but the total bill was just £26 including the glass of wine and a pint of St Austell Tribute.
The owners have been running this pub for less than a year and have already started winning awards, I'm not surprised. By summer 2011 you'll probably need to book well in advance during the peak periods.
Fantastic value and excellent quality for a pub.

Food very good, nice choice of drinks. Friendly atmosphere. Seems to get busy so would recommend going early / late or booking.

Average prices, paid just under £30 for two main courses (one was a steak) and two drinks.

The pub is well furnished and quite smart inside - its cosy and 'pubby'. Food was decent - not bad at all but far from haute cuisine as you'd expect. Quite a few sour looking bar staff and waiters around when we went, although don't let that put you off too much.
