didn't eat here but drank here a couple of nights. One night it was well rowdy, the other not so. I expect that probably depends on who comes in. Fag-butts ahoy on the pavement outside. No telly in the room, but for £30 what does one expect? This is a pub built in something like 1570 so no en-suites either,... More

Staying a week in Fowey we had five of our meals in The Ship Inn, after the first superb meal - we always sat in the bar area - it was difficult not to call back in the following evening. On our last evening it seemed like a good idea to venture into another eatery so after calling in The... More

We only had 1 night here & it was superb food & quaint accommodation in the "Oak Room". Shared facilities were no problem & very clean. As we were on a motorcycle we were able to park in the free designated area right across the road.

I can't speak to the accommodation aspects, but I was here in May of 2013 on the last night of the Fowey Festival seeing Ruthie Henshall. We stopped here for a bite to eat and I had the crab and mussel soup. Three months later, I can't get it out of my mind-so much so that I looked at all... More

We had a couple of nights at The Ship Inn with our two dogs in July. We were made very welcome from the start, with handy instructions on how to unload your luggage and where to park, as the pub is right in the middle of the town on a busy one way system. The room was more than adequate... More

Great traditional pub with real ale and serving meals. Four choices of roast on menu with only beef and pork when we arrived. Great Sunday lunch well presented and thick cut beef. By the time we left only had pork left, and probably a good sign that the food is good, staff friendly and helpful.

My pork arrived quickly after ordering it even though it was a busy lunch time . It was excellently presented with mashed and roast potatoes and parsnips complete with... More

A good traditional pub with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The food is first class and beautifully cooked, so much so we went back twice during our stay in Fowey. There is a good choice of dishes and and the puddings are to die for! Great value and you won't leave hungry. For beer drinkers there is a range... More

Stayed one night at The Ship and I have to say, it was excellent. A very warm welcome from the staff, roaring log fire and first class local Ales. Perfect way to start our trip. I have to say I was a bit apprehensive about not having an en-suite room but I needn't have worried. The bathroom was just fine... More
