Seasonal, local, field-to-fork food from acclaimed chefs Emily Watkins (Great British Menu, Kingham Plough & The Fat Duck) and Jack Clayton (The Gurnard’s Head)

The Carew Arms, the old Ring O’Bells, is a pub, general store and cafe in the little village of Antony in South East Cornwall. Reopened in July 2016 after the first extensive renovation in many years, The Carew Arms is focused on delivering affordable, local and seasonal produce. The simple menu places an emphasis on the quality of the produce that we’re using in the kitchen.

Upstairs there is a private dining room that will seat 20 or host a standing reception for 40.

Downstairs the old skittle alley has been transformed into a general store, a hybrid community/farm shop with a small cafe serving delicious cakes, cream teas and the best coffee on the peninsula.


Consultant Chef: Emily Watkins

Emily spent three years in the kitchen at The Fat Duck working her way up to sous chef, from there she opened her own pub, The Kingham Plough, which recently came 8th on the list of the Top 50 Gastropubs in Britain. She was also a contestant on BBC’s Great British Menu, where in her second year she won the South West section, and went on to win the fish course. She appeared again in 2015 as a judge on the show.

Head Chef: Jack  Clayton

Jack trained in Nottingham working for the Michelin-starred, The Red Lion. He moved to Cornwall in 2014 to head up the kitchen at The Gurnard’s Head, an award-winning pub in Zennor and voted 13th Best Gastropub in Britain.

The Loft at The Carew Arms is one of the best spaces for private dining in Cornwall. Nestling under the eaves, with exposed brick walls and ‘Edison’ light bulbs, the room brings a little of New York to South East Cornwall. Seating up to 20 diners, or enough space for 35 standing The Loft is ideal as a function room.

Please let us know what you are planning and we will do our best to help from price-conscious menus to match your budget to decorating the room for that special occasion.

The Loft is also available for meetings and events during the day. We can produce audio-visual equipment when requested.

Unfortunately, we need to take a £200 deposit to secure the room for you, which you can put against your bill at the event.

We will put together a three-course menu for you, and we do need the diners’ choices back five days before the event takes place. Let us know your budget and we will try and produce something to suit, but otherwise we will charge £22 a head.
