Enjoyed the warm Ship Inn hospitality as part of a post Christmas get away, staying in the annex adjacent to the main Inn enjoying a perfect view of the harbour and the seasonal Mousehole lights. The Inn offered up its usual selection of local characters you become accustomed to (having been a regular visitor over many years), genuinely welcoming, friendly... More

Stopped off in mousehole during a trip around cornwall and enjoyed good food and a glass of ale in wonderful surroundings. The portions were a decent size and the staff most helpful. Must stay over night in the future

We had a wonderful time enjoying the famous Christmas lights and had a lovely meal (I had the steak, hubby had mussels.) At no point did we feel... More

We wanted to see some large waves to show our children as they had never been to Cornwall before, so we decided on Mousehole after the storms they had in February. In September it was like a mill pond. We were not that disappointed as it was absolutely beautiful and very warm for the late part of the month. The... More

We all had very different meals so it covered all our tastes. Would love to go back and watch the winter weather another time or the Christmas... More
