Having walked out of the Bedford Arms in central Tavistock for being ignored, we were feeling a bit dejected but our humour was greatly improved with a lovely warm welcome as we entered the Cornish Arms. We were shown to a table, given menus and...More

As ever the food and service is good here. Nice place to come for an afternoon. I really enjoyed my meal of Hispi cabbage, though did find it a bit pricey at £15 for a cabbage heart, an egg some mayonnaise and nuts sprinkled on...More

Lovely new accommodation at this established Gastropub. Very warm welcome and excellent service throughout our stay. Beware very hot water from the ensuite handbasin tap. Bed extremely comfortable. Evening food professional and well served, wine list restricted and unimaginative. Breakfast outstanding, coffee particularly good.

A great menu with interesting choices. The food was delicious and we could see why the restaurant was fully booked and we had seating in the bar.

Was there yesterday evening to celebrate my Mums 82nd birthday. The communication prior to the event was prompt, polite and accommodating. We were a group of 18 and the service and food were superb - couldn’t fault it. Lovely atmosphere as well. Highly recommend.

Went here for an evening meal after reading other reviews and we were not disappointed - some of the best food we have had for ages. Don't be put off by the appearance of other businesses on the same road because inside the Cornish Arms...More

The pubs in this area, particularly Gunnislake leave a lot to be desired. This was a very refreshing change. Not what I’d call a ‘local’ it’s a destination pub with lovely food. The best food I’ve eaten in a long time. My only criticism would...More
