We stayed three nights at The Ship. The staff were really friendly and so helpful and polite. The food, including the breakfast was fresh and the service was so quick. We had some great meals ...... I would not hesitate to recommend The Ship to anyone. Clean, warm, wonderful view from our room (room 3 ). Thank you to all... More

On arrival the staff were very friendly and efficient and we immediately felt at home. Very cosy and comfy pub atmosphere. We had a room in the cottage next door with a bay window overlooking the harbour, spotlessly clean and very warm (a bonus in February) It was very convenient as we had our German Shepherd Solo with us and...

Great local vibe when we arrived very welcoming. The young bar man was excellent, our room was harbour view (the bed was a standard double bed, we are not big but for us its a tad to small) Service was good, food good, walks amazing. Could not fault this. Really good 2 nights stay.

Glad we didn't pay summer prices to stay here. Very standard pub, clean well appointed room, but disappointing menu. This was a 40th birthday present and although the location was amazing, everything else was average. Apart from the noisy room with DIYing at 1 in the morning and a refridgeration unit running intermittently outside the window. The breakfast was good,... More

Booked as a cheeky short getaway, we found the pub to be very pleasant, but sadly menu somewhat lacking. Burgers, Steaks and fish all pretty standard fare. We stayed in the cottage rooms next door, all clean and spacious, sadly (and by no fault of the pub) their next door neighbours had a penchant for D.I.Y into the early hours... More

Great location next to the harbour with stunning views of the coast, room rates were very reasonable despite being peak time at New Year's and the rooms were clean and well maintained. The food in the bar is comfort/pub food with quality local produce (massive portions too!) Staff were delightful, local characters in the pub add to the atmosphere brilliantly.... More

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
