French classics at The Falmouth Arms

After almost a decade outside the county, Kevin Viner has returned in 2019 to bring his classic French cooking to The Falmouth Arms at Ladock.

Kevin Viner earned the first Michelin star for Cornwall in 1993 and retained the accolade at his restaurant PennyPots for nine years before moving on to pastures new. Many of the chefs who worked under him during that era (including Chris Eden of Gidleigh Park and Paul Ripely) have gone on to similar success.

Dining at The Falmouth Arms is an opportunity to relive the kind of classic cooking which springboarded the South West restaurant scene’s adventures in fine dining. Dishes such as twice-baked cheese souffle, crab cocktail and duck à l’orange are exemplary in their execution and are as timeless as they are nostalgic.

In winter, enjoy a pre-dinner drink by the fire in the cosy bar and browse the huge display of awards which Kevin has collected over the years. The wine list includes a few top picks from Cornish vineyards including the delicious Camel Valley Sparkling Brut.

Four comfortable bedrooms above the pub offer a cosy night’s slumber, while Kevin’s classic breakfasts are worth staying over for.

Trencherman’s tip: this welcoming dining pub makes a great gourmet pitstop on any touring trip through Cornwall.
