Stayed here 2 nights in the first week of September. Nice room, comfy beds, great breakfast, a really pleasant stay. When booking we were told that all of the sea view rooms were sold out, so we were nicely surprised when we could do a bit of naval gazing from our window. There is no parking on site but there...

Great selection of beers. Also if your at the bar look at the photo which says 'car wash'. ;) Overall a great place for a drink and food. Would... More

We arrived at The Ship Inn on a Friday evening in mid August under the impression that we had reserved a room for two nights. Sadly this turned out not to be the case! I had thought that I was speaking to The Ship at Mousehole when making our reservation but it eventually transpired that it had been another Ship... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and ate in the evenings there as well. What a wonderful place. Extremely pretty, situated by the harbour and wonderfully traditional with so much character. The staff are superb and a special mention must go to Eve who went that extra mile to ensure our stay was a delightful experience. The... More

Stayed here for one night on a Cornwall Coastal Path jaunt. Lovely traditional pub that does excellent food. The Catch of the Day ( fish and chips) is awesome. Really helpful staff. We were given a room that overlooked the harbour and had a lovely window seat... Big room....everything you would need. Breakfast was also good with various vegetarian alternatives.... More

If you are visiting Mousehole then make sure you find time for lunch, a drink, coffee, dinner, or an overnight stay here. Unfailingly pleasant staff. Decent food, decent beer, good selection of wine. Caters for locals and visitors admirably well. Ideal place to hole up and be cozy when the storms are lashing. Ideal place to have a drink and... More

Gorgeous quaint village, beautiful bar, restaurant and accommodation at The Ship Inn. Lovely food, both for dinner and breakfast, great atmosphere with fabulous friendly staff and gorgeous rooms. Breakfast is served at the most respectable holiday maker time of 9 to 10 am, so this is the best lie in we got! Tiny narrow two way roads in the town,... More

Today we just had lunch at the Ship, the staff were very friendly and there was a pleasant atmosphere about the place. The sandwich was very fresh and the coleslaw was home made with a fresh side salad. The portions that were coming out for the other guests were a large proportion. Well worth a visit.
