The Kings Arms at Paul is one of west Cornwall’s most atmospheric pubs. With our no-fruit-machine, no satellite TV policy we have encouraged a return to old family values and quickly earned a reputation for good food and good beer in the most hospitable surroundings.

Bed and breakfast accommodation is available in our five comfortable rooms. A full English breakfast is provided for our guests.

We have two bars serving well-kept St Austell Brewery real ales and a selection of good homemade food every day of the week.

We are perfectly located near Mousehole on the Penwith peninsula and our five welcoming bedrooms provide the ideal base for you to explore all the delights that the area offers.

Cyclists are catered for at the Kings Arms with a lock up yard for safe cycle storage. We are located just off the National Cycle Network Route 3 (see our contact page for cycling directions) making us a perfect accommodation choice for End-to-Enders.


Paul today is a quiet, peaceful village with a population of just 234. The village used to include the fishing ports of Newlyn and Mousehole before they were granted parish status.

In 1595, with the Spanish Armada at anchor off the west Cornwall peninsula, soldiers landed at Mousehole before marching up the hill to burn Paul church.

The building housing the Kings Arms was formerly six cottages, believed to be the home of the master builders who constructed Paul church tower in the 15th century. It has remained a pub for hundreds of years and, along with the church, is firmly at the heart of the local community.
