Such a friendly pub. We were shattered after our day at the book festival. The pub was only 1-2 miles down the road. We had a great room with generous amounts of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits on offer. There were toiletries fir each of us with toothbrushes and nail kits There were waffle cotton robes in the wardrobe and slippers too - such lovely touches. Dinner was delicious with a good range of dishes on offer. Breakfast was spot on with proper butcher's sausages. It's good value for money here and a great place from which to explore the north coast. Thank you to our thoughtful hosts. Those extra touches make all the difference and we're much appreciated.

We stayed here as a stopover on our coastal path walk and were impressed with the service and feel of the place. The owners were friendly and the facilities very good.
The building itself is old and has great charm but it is apparent that here is a lot of outlay required for the new owners to maintain it. But our room was lovely and the shower was excellent.
The only criticism we have, and I hope that this is taken without offence, is that the blue sweat shirts that are worn as a uniform don't really suit the place. We thought that it gave a holiday camp feel.
We will definitely stay here again.

We visited here the other night after seeing a couple of recommendations at our holiday home. After ordering our drinks at the bar we were seated in the coffee room along with another couple. It was pleasant enough and we were given menus to look at. The landlord came through and took our order. We didn't have long to wait for our starters to arrive. When the main course came we waited about 5 minutes for some cutlery as the waitress disappeared to find some French mustard that my partner had requested. I enjoyed my meal, my partner's could have been warmer. We were under the impression that they had a staff issue, which from where we sat, was v obvious as our host was quite short with the chef and waitress. However maybe if there had been more help the evening probably would have run smoother.

Just returned from a very enjoyable four night stay at The Cornish Arms with Geoff and Karen. Nothing was too much trouble for them and it felt like we were part of their Family with interesting conversation and attention to every detail. The room we had was very comfortable and clean with every amenity needed.The added benefit of free, fast Wi Fi in our room was very much appreciated as some Hotels still insist on charging for it.
We ate here every night and found the food tasty, well cooked and good value for money. The food menu is available on the Pub Website so you can browse it before visiting. We chose this Pub to stay at as we wanted to visit the area around Port Isaac. It turned out to be in just the right spot for going to Padstow, Wadebridge, Rock, Tintagel and Boscastle as well. All in all we felt our stay here was well priced, good value for money and very relaxing. We shall certainly be staying with Geoff and Karen again !!

Room Tip: We chose Room 6 as it was the only one with a bath, not just a shower enclosure.

Found this fab little pub on our way from Port Isaac to Polzeath in search of a Sunday carvery, unfortunately they weren't doing them but we ate there anyway, the Steak & Ale pie was great, one of the best I've had. Staff were great and there was a very welcoming atmosphere.
