We popped in for a quick drink. No one to be seen behind the bar. To be fair the bar maid did arrive after a few minutes but what followed left me amazed! The customer in front of me says, "can I order a pint of bitter and a glass of Shiraz?" The bar maid says, sorry we don't serve... More

I found this place last week. What a find. A great old pub with a restaurant that must be unique in the uk. The stained glass window is worthy of a cathedral let alone a humble pub. Tribute and Proper Job on tab. David the new patron and chef is very good. Known him from his days at the Crab... More

Had some gorgeous sandwiches here for a light lunch. From the upstairs floor there is a lovely view of the streets of Fowey; good for dog spotting! Thought the sandwiches were very good value for money and were very tasty too.

We always spend an hour or so most days of our holiday in the Ship. It is very friendly and welcoming, and in November the log far can be very welcome. Not make to feel like an outsider as you can in some bars. Great beers and ciders. Easy access for Internet is big bonus. Thoroughly recommend.

Chose The Ship from the 'the lucky dip' section of the Good Pub as we haven't visited this area before. All five meals were disappointing, the chips and peas were cold and the fish was over cooked and dry. Also, the beer was more expensive than the other pubs further down the road. My advise, steer clear, walk a little... More

We dropped into the Ship early evening as a recce for something to eat (based on reviews on TA). First impressions not good. The bar person was more interested in chatting to the lads at the end of the bar, and to cap it all collected some empty glasses from some of our party before the rest of us had... More
