Take away and tuck in

The Lemon Arms at Mylor Bridge has garnered something of a reputation as a must-visit for anyone in search of hearty, seasonal Cornish cuisine.

It’s true: the Lemon Arms is the perfect pitstop whatever the time of year, but as the temperatures of autumn begin to drop and we anticipate the onset of winter, nothing quite comes close to the
idea of sitting next to a roaring fire, glass of your chosen Cornish tipple to hand, and perusing a menu built almost wholly of Cornish produce.

Of course, as is the case for many Cornish businesses, the Lemon Arms has had to roll with the punches thrown by the Coronavirus pandemic, and you need only visit the website and peruse the mouth-watering takeaway menu to see that the team is dedicated to delivering its customers’ favourites, even if they aren’t all able to make it to the pub.

At the helm of this stellar Cornish establishment are Johnny and Sam Pearce who, between them, boast more than two decades’ experience running Cornish pubs and restaurants. So it’s no surprise to see a reel of Cornish companies on the Lemon Arms list of suppliers; meat comes from Mylor Butchers, Brian Etherington and RJ Trevarthen, whilst seafood is delivered by Seabourne Fish, Matthew Stevens, South Coast Fisheries and Rodney Corke Crab. Add to these an abundance of fruit and veg from WestCountry, dairy from Roddas, wine from Walter Hicks, and of course beer from St Austell Brewery, and, well… you get the picture!

Differing slightly to the in house menu, the takeaway offering nevertheless features some of our favourite pub classics, interspersed with some true flavours of Cornwall. Homemade mackerel paté with crusty bread, for instance, makes for a tempting starter, whilst the choice of main courses is absolutely loaded with Cornish goodies, including a number of vegetarian dishes capitalising on the Duchy’s natural larder. There’s also a choice of sandwiches and jacket potatoes, plus a tempting selection of desserts to help ‘cleanse the palate’.

In short, whether you’re eating in, or are in the area and wish to enjoy the Lemon Arms menu from the comfort of your own home or holiday let, we highly recommend heading to the website and checking out the menu for yourself. Washed down with a pint of St Austell beer, or a glass of Cornish wine, it really does take some beating.
