General information

The Carpenters Arms is a successful and welcoming village inn which draws trade not only from the immediate area but from a wide reaching catchment area reaching into South East Cornwall and Devon. Trade is steady year-round but swells in the summer months with the influx of visitors to the area.

The pub is currently run under management and trades strongly at around £6,000 per week. The Carpenters is very much a traditional pub with a healthy mix of wet and dry revenue. The pub offers well priced home cooked pub staples with a wide range of local real ales to compliment. Stonebaked pizzas are a speciality. Sunday lunches are very popular as are the regular Steak nights and live music evenings.

The Carpenters is open 4-10pm Monday to Wednesdays and 12 – 10pm Thursdays to Saturdays, Sundays 12 – 7pm.

The substantial living accommodation above the pub would lend itself to extended family use or alternatively letting accommodation.
