Description: 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.

Love this place, it didn’t disappoint. Friendly and mostly efficient staff, menu seems to have more vegetarian options which is great. All the food ordered was lovely, cooked to perfection. There did seem to be a lot of young servers but they were trying their best and were v keen to please . Just a little thing, ordered champagne and was given wine glasses, didn’t have the heart to tell the young lad they were the wrong glasses. Overall great evening, will definitely return .

Two of the five starters came out 20 minutes after the others, food underwhelming and tasteless. Seemed like a team of people with no leader. To top it off there was a 12.5% discretionary service charge on the bill which wasn’t even mentioned. Soon had that removed and will not be going back.

Uninspired food served in a vast, completely soulless dining space, complete with function room type bar and totally unnecessary muzak playing in the background. Not sure who this is actually aimed at - conference groups perhaps? There are scores of lovely Cornish pubs serving excellent, interesting food but this isn't one of them. Certainly won't be returning and definitely would not recommend.

We booked for a special occasion family meal yesterday evening and it was truly awful. Disinterested staff. We arrived for a 18.45 table and received our mains at 20.25. We were served an order of drinks when we arrived and nobody came to ask if we wanted any more drinks or anything else all evening. The couple on the next table were complaining about waiting 2 hours for their food. We will never go again. Food the same standard as McDonalds but MUCH slower to arrive. Rick Stein should be ashamed.
