The Hawkins Arms


The Hawkins Arms is an historic coaching inn and one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall

Situated on the old highway from London to Land’s End, the pub was originally called ‘The Half Moon’ but in the 19th century was renamed ‘Hawkins Arms’ to honour west country Elizabethan seafarer, Sir Richard Hawkins, nephew of Sir Francis Drake and a commander in Drake’s fleet fighting against the Spanish Armada.

Owners Adam and Alex are justifiably proud of their homely, family-friendly ‘Free House’ pub, restaurant and guest house. Where you can enjoy a pleasant drink with good food in a relaxed environment – which during the winter months has a log fire burning away.

A Proper Cornish Village Pub

Serving Real Ale

And a Great Selection of Wines

"A Great Restaurant in a Pub"

We are family owned and run free house with a growing reputation for good, fresh food and well kept ales. We try to source our produce from local business as much as possible with homemade our aim, from the stocks and pastries right through to our desserts. Experience a warm welcome, friendly service and enjoy your meal.

With a new restaurant extension and recently refurbished letting rooms this is one of the few genuine pubs left with its own unique stamp. Dogs are welcome within the carpeted bar area though we have a ‘guide dog’ only policy in the new extension.

We hold a good selection of wines to buy by the glass as well as a more extensive list to buy by the bottle and even a sparkling variety for that special occasion.
