The Ship Inn is as true to Cornwall as you can get. Accommodation is fine some rooms are a little small but we need to remember that we are in a true Cornish village full of cottages. Food is excellent as are the staff! I love Cornwall for the history and the authenticity and in Mousehole you can mingle with... More

Let's start with the good stuff, of which there is plenty. The location, right on Mousehole's picturesque harbour, is unbeatable. The pub is ancient and atmospheric, with a nice mix of visitors and locals keeping it busy. The restaurant menu is a bit limited, especially if you're not a seafood devotee, but the breakfasts - accompanied by views out to... More

We ate at the Ship Inn in Mousehole twice during our week long stay in Mousehole and were very impressed on both visits. Despite the fact that the pub was heaving and there was barely an empty table, the service was excellent. The food was very good, particularly the fish pie which was so tasty. Friendly staff and reasonable prices... More

Had dinner here and the catch of the day was grilled fish which was delicious. The Beer was good too. Atmosphere is a real pub so I felt very comfortable and had plenty of room. I didn't stay in the hotel

Lunch here on a Sunday. The local ham sandwich was fabulous and the fish goujons and chips scrumptious; all reasonably priced. The HSD was well kept and service polite and speedy. The only but, stems from the foul language being liberally spouted by a few local chaps at the bar. We were sat a good 20 feet from the bar... More

Two meals so far with a third surely coming. Great food here with something for every one. Fresh sea food, excellent Cornish beef and a good pint of tribute. Staff couldn't be nicer. Very friendly, courteous and efficient. Could not ask for more

Stayed for just one night, but would recommend a longer stay. Room 8 in the adjoining house has a lovely view of the harbour. You can sit and watch the comings and goings, tide coming in or out. Comfortable bed and a chair in the window. Scrummy Cornish Fairings to have with your coffee. The room was a reasonable size,... More

Lovely food, service and atmosphere . Took out one year old for dinner Easter Sunday and throughly enjoyed. Would book the restaurant for a family though bar can get very busy . Big portions so I wouldn't get a baby a children's meal just let them share yours.

We have stayed in the Ship years ago so when we arrived back in Mousehole we made straight for it. We stayed in the same room which is next door to the Inn with a veiw over the harbour. Mousehole has to be one of the most beautiful in Britain. The accommodation is simple, clean and very comfortable. TV, toiletries... More
