The Cornish Arms

image5

The Cornish Arms is a traditional family run pub situated in the beautiful Cornish village of Frogpool. You can find us just off the A39 between Truro and Falmouth, close to Redruth.

The pub has always been known as the Cornish Arms and has a long and interesting history. Naturally, the Cornish Arms and Frogpool village have seen many changes over the years, but it has always had the reputation for being a pleasant place to be.

An extensive menu is offered for both lunchtimes and evenings, with seasonal specialities and a traditional Sunday lunch. We can also cater for parties and special occasions. The pub is open every day except Monday lunchtimes and as a free house the Cornish Arms is able to offer good ales, beers and a selection of great wines.

Regular activities include euchre, bingo, pool and quizzes with occasional and seasonal events such as Harvest Festival, Duck Race and the Christmas Grand Draw.

HIDDEN GEM - GWENNAP TRAIL 2

The long building on the bend just after Cusgarne School was a Wool Mill in the early 1800's. It is now 3 dwellings.

 

Gwennap - Trail 2 - Frogpool Trail

This is a 2.7 mile loop that is a gentle walk or small cycle ride. Walking will take you about an hour and 10 minutes and cycling about 25 minutes.

If you are already on the Coast to Coast trail then this is a great diversion off that trail to stop off at the Cornish Arms at Frogpool for a spot of lunch before circling back round to the Coast to Coast again.
