Full description

LOCATION
Launceston is on the A30 trunk road, the main route in to Cornwall for both visitors and residents and is approximately 40 miles west of Exeter, 50 miles north of Plymouth and 30 miles east of Bodmin. It is roughly midway between the north coast of Cornwall at Bude and the south coast at Saltash. Dartmoor National Park is less than 10 miles distant.

DESCRIPTION
The Bakers Arms is a traditional Town Inn situated in the centre of Launceston adjacent to the South Gate with its double arches. An Inn has stood on this site for many centuries and over the years has served as a Civic meeting place, Hostelry and a Theatre. Its position close to the South Gate made it an ideal venue for people entering or leaving the old town of Launceston.

In 1747 the Inn was known as the Queens Arms and was used extensively by the town's people for receptions and entertainment. In 1772 the name was altered to the Kings Arms and in 1847 the building was completely remodelled to its present layout, and was subsequently renamed The Bakers Arms.
