The Cornish Arms

Based on Rick’s famous recipes and overseen by head chef Mark O’Hagan, The Cornish Arms in St. Merryn, offers a simple British pub menu, with dishes like real beef burgers, mussels and chips and scampi in the basket. Expect some of St Austell Brewery’s best ales and a great selection of wines.

In summer, sit outside in fresh Cornish air and soak up the sunshine with a glass of something cold. In autumn, cosy up by our log fires with some comfort food whilst watching the world go by. We have a large free car park and well behaved dogs are welcome in the pub on their leads and in our large beer garden.
