Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spot on service by very pleasant and helpful staff. The menu was preselected before we arrive so dinner arrived promptly. Three children ate everything which is unusual! Four adults thoroughly enjoyed their meals which were reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

I’m not sure where to start….. I wanted to write a review because I feel this place deserves to have some recognition. In a nutshell….. Food…affordable prices, great portions, well presented and tastes as good as it looks. Drinks….affordable prices with a great selection. Staff….Absolutely...Amazing to be honest. Me, my sister and my 2 young daughters had one of the best times visiting on a Sunday afternoon. They play live music Sunday afternoons and the band even let my 6 year old get up and sing. From start to finish the place was A+. I’d recommend to anyone.More

Amazing food and great atmosphere here in this friendly traditional local pub set in the heart of beautiful Metherell. The owner - Midge - was wonderfull talking to us about the local area and what it's like to live and work in Metherell - even...giving us a small guided tour! We would definitly reccomend visiting here - especially as they host so much live music in the evenings!More

Amazing, lovely food in a beautiful old country pub setting. Home cooked, plentiful portions. Chunky chips and lasagne were the best ive had in a long time.

A wonderful country pub set in the heart of this lovely village. Having played here with our band the previous weekend and been warmly welcomed by everyone, we returned to sample the delights of their menu. And what a treat! We had the tiger prawns...with crusty bread, chicken goujons with a lime, ginger and soy salad, and the seafood selection & chips basket meal. All 3 meals and 2 drinks came to a total of about £27 - tremendous value for what were very generous platefuls, and all of first class quality. I would highly recommend eating, drinking and enjoying a live music event here. Thankyou Midge and your fantastic team - we will definitely be back.More

My partner and I dined here tonight after we booked a table in advance. I am so happy we came across this pub on Trip Advisor as it is off the beaten track but what a hidden gem it truly is. As soon as we...stepped in the door we received a warm welcome with a menu already placed on the table for us. We both had steak and each one was cooked to perfection, the cheesy garlic bread was amazing also and pudding was just as good and there was a nice selection of cakes on the counter too. The landlady was lovely and checked in with us regularly and the chef / cook even came out to make sure all was okay with our meals which we couldn’t fault. This is a locals pub but tourists like us were made very welcome too.More

Visited for a late lunch one January afternoon when struggling to find anywhere open for food at that time of year! It’s right in the middle of the village and clearly an old pub. Warmly welcomed. We went in to the conservatory side of the...pub which whilst nice I felt the traditional bar would be cosier and it was!! Clearly a locals pub with some enjoying a drink at the bar but making us feel at home too. Menu is standard fare and we chose steak and chilli main dishes. Both came out as generous portions - the steak was well cooked with a nice blue cheese sauce. The chips and onion rings were also good. Chilli was a good size portion too. I’d asked for a mix of the nacho or rice option which was accommodated. I had asked if any guacamole or salsa was possible but there wasn’t. I thought there might be as they also have fajitas on the menu “with all the trimmings”. Not to worry. It was a nice enough chilli. The food was hot and filling and drinks were nice too. It’s a nice old pub and we enjoyed a game of darts after we’d eaten - something we haven’t done for years!!! I wouldn’t rave about the food. It was nice enough and well cooked. Home cooking style I’d say. Would eat here again if passing but I wouldnt go out of my way for the food. We had an enjoyable visit though.More

We loved our visit to Carpenters Arms! It’s a gorgeous traditional English pub set in a Cornish village. We had a Sunday Roast which was delicious. Pudding was good too as were the drinks and atmosphere! The service was fantastic and the prices very reasonable....Would highly recommend it and will definitely return if we come back to this area again.More

There are steps up to the front patio, I don't recall seeing a ramp. Once on the patio the lounge and restaurant are accessible, the bar would be a bit tight. May be worth a phone call as I am sure they would be able to help.
