Popped in to the Eliot Arms having not been to St Germans since childhood. Very large pub and apart from 2 at the bar and 2 other (unfortunate) diners, the place was empty. This should have served as a clue as to what was to follow. I had the roast beef (allegedly) and Mdm G had the pork. Both were...

We have just had a beautiful steak meal with a couple of pints. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful inside. Prices on food very good. Locals very friendly to talk too . Will return over the weekend to try something else.

Microwaved local sausages and reconstituted mash in red liquid gravy - revolting. The staff were reasonably friendly and the dog was given a biscuit treat.The exterior is rather picturesque but contains a very ordinary interior.

We stayed at The Eliot Arms over Bank Holiday weekend with our daughter. Sue and her team made us feel so welcome - as the saying goes, we arrived as strangers and left as friends. The rooms are simple, clean & comfortable and food is great; proper home-cooked dishes, served with a smile. We really hope to return one day!

What do you do when friends enthusiastically recommend a place and you join them there for a meal, only to be very very disappointed? That was our experience here today. We took the teactful way out and said nothing, but boy oh boy we could have caused them serious embarrassment. Full marks for the friendly welcome and the warning that...

Went there on a flyer, lovely friendly country pub. True basic menu not varied but special board more than made up for it. The food was sumptuous and made even better by the exceptional homemade sauces of sue & Courtney. No sachets of pre packaged sauces here, but with very reasonable prices. Really friendly staff offering advice on the area....

Visiting St Germans we popped in on our first night. Lovely warm welcome. The lovely girl on the bar/waitressing was rushed off her feet but didn't stop smiling all night and was really cheerful. Our portions were generous, I had the whitebait starter and it was huge! Other food was good, kids enjoyed it although I don't think there is...

Thank you for your lovely comments . This is one of our busiest times of the year with the port Eliot festival so it's great to know that you had a good visit . You are correct in saying that we do not have a specific children's menu but we do smaller portions of quite a few of our meals...

Lovely and characterful pub in attractive and typically Cornish village. Received a very friendly welcome for us and our dog ( free treats ), from the lovely young barmaid. We enjoyed our drinks in this quirky old pub and it would definitely rate four stars if the food was better. We had reasonably priced dishes but lasagne was overdone making...
