Hi, thank you for leaving a review of The Farmers Arms on TripAdvisor. You are right about trying to find food on a Monday night, it can be a bit of a challenge as so many pubs only serve food lunchtimes on Sundays and Mondays....More

Have been to this pub many times in my life whilst on holiday in the area. Eat here over the weekend and food was excellent as was the general atmosphere in this traditional Cornish pub. Worth popping in if you’re in the area.More

Enjoyed a very nice reasonably priced meal here when we descended on the pub as a large group of about 20 people & a dog one Monday night. Very nice menu and great service with friendly staff. Enjoyed the curry. Would eat here again. Recommended.More

Hi and many thanks for your review at TripAdvisor. The Farmers Arms produces a significant amount of home produced pies etc. so we are able to provide really good quality food, at pub, rather than restaurant prices. Of course that alone would not be enough...More

Dinner menu was limited, and our choices disappointing. The steak was thin and dry, the chips made from unpeeled potatoes, some large and soft, some small and over-crispy. Good pub grub is great, but this was lazy, and not cheap. Sorry, won't be returning, even...More

Pretty sure they do pub grub as well as the calvary, I think a disabled person could achieve access, kids and dog I think should be fine too, not sure about wifi.
