The Cornish Arms

Rick Stein’s pub in St Merryn, Cornwall

Based on Rick’s famous recipes and overseen by head chef Julian Pickup, 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.

Located a short drive from the beautiful beaches of Harlyn, Constantine and Trevone, stop by for a bite to eat and drink after a trip to the beach. In spring and summer take a seat on a bench in our large beer garden, and during the colder months cosy up by our log fires with friends and family for some real comfort food. We have a large free car park and well behaved dogs are welcome in the pub on their leads and in our beer garden too.
