We went for dinner at the Ship Inn and it was great. The staff were welcoming and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Great place for families and the kids meals were just right. Our food was delicious and we all left smiling ....the rain didn't bother us after that.

The food was expensive overrated and of poor quality, however the presentation and layout was good which appears to be what we were paying for, not the food. Ate here at lunchtime because everywhere else was full wish we hadn't, should have spotted the first clue when everywhere else was busy but when we walked in no other customers were... More

We were unable to get their feature room but we did have a comfortable double room. Just remember there are no en-suites, so don't be surprised if you bump into someone waiting on the landing for one of the bathrooms! Very welcoming and friendly staff and a good hearty breakfast (I had the full works and my wife had the... More

Four of us ate here early on a Saturday night. We all agreed that the quality of the food was very high, however the portions were on the small side. I had Lemon Sole with asparagus which was cooked perfectly, I asked for new potatoes to accompany it, they didn't have any so I had to have mashed potato. Not... More

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.
