A proper pub near Padstow in north Cornwall

The Cornish Arms is a local village pub near Padstow with good real ales from St Austell Brewery and simple, classic pub menu where everyone is welcome.

Join us in the Cornish countryside for traditional British favourites like fish and chips, burgers, ham, egg and chips and steak and ale pie, or if a few quiet pints are what you fancy, pull up a stool or grab a table in our drinkers’ bar where you can also order a few bar bites to round off a very pleasing time indeed.

During the winter cosy up by the fire after a bracing coastal walk to enjoy a glorious Sunday roast cooked by Head Chef Ash and team. Cornish beef with all the trimmings will be the hero on the menu, of course. You just need to choose between a glass of decent red or a pint of your favourite St Austell Brewery ale to complete a very pleasing few hours with friends and family.

Throughout the summer months, our beer garden welcomes a woodfired pizza menu. The perfect addition to lazy, alfresco supper in the Cornish sunshine with a glass of something cold. Our pizza chefs are in action every day between 3pm and 9pm and we think you’ll love the prawn, confit garlic and chilli pizza. It’s fab.

Booking is strongly advisable as we can get very busy.
