Pub Grub Or Fine Dining At

The Hawkins Arms

Our head chef and his team love food, which is evident by their mouth watering creations, artistically presented with care on the plate.

Whether you’re looking for real traditional ‘pub grub’, a real pie, fresh fish, vegetarian, curries, vegan, gluton free we will do our best to accomodate you.

As a Cornish country pub, we use local, fresh produce as much as possible from the surrounding area. We also have a ‘specials board’, kids menu and sandwiches/light bites as well as the menu below.

Home-made is our aim whenever possible, so please come in and experience a warm welcome, friendly service and enjoy your meal.

Freshly cooked, freshly prepared food takes a little longer, but is well worth the extra time. We cater for children, either from a separate menu, or by offering smaller portions from the main menu and our Sunday roast is very popular.

Food Served

Lunch time Wed to Sun 12.00 – 2.00, evening 6.00 – 9.00. We are shut Mon all day & Tues lunch time only.

We are a dog friendly free house as long as the dog is friendly and on a lead.

Please Note

Unfortunately, we don’t allow dogs in the new restaurant extension.
