Stopped here on a busy day in Padstow. Good service, great menu choice and good drinks choice. The staff were excellent as it was extremely busy. Lovely food and a great atmosphere. We were pleased with our choice of pub and were rewarded with good food and service

This is the fourth time we have stayed at the Old Ship and the second time with our teenage daughter. We had adjoining rooms 7 and 12 again which afforded us some privacy and gave us peace of mind for the security of our daughter. The rooms were, once again, spotless and the housekeeping staff provided an excellent service as... More

Staff great,food very over price and not so well cooked. Accommodation ok,comfy bed,but ensuite smaller than my wardrobe. Room did not look as shown on web site. But the worst thing was the noise from the bar down stairs! Don't plan for an early night!!!

I really enjoyed my meal and the service was polite and efficient even if very busy. The food was pleasant and the portions very generous, we found place inside without booking, but on a sunny day the tables are outside must be great!!!

Although we didn't stay over at this hotel we did choose to eat there after pondering several other menu's close by, and we were pleased that we did. They were so busy on Monday 29th June but we found a table for two which had lounger chairs to sit in, but one of the bar staff quickly replaced them with... More

Lovely small hotel in centre of padstow. Staff pleasant and helpful. Ideal location for using, as we were out everyday exploring coastal walks etc, so glad to come back to a central, fairly lively padstow for the evening with plenty of choice for places to eat and drink - if you get chance check out Paul Ainsworth at No 6...

The hotel is centrally located in the quant town of Padstow. The staff is wonderful for the hotel and the restaurant. I had to laugh when the lad that checked us into our room, was also the bartender later that evening, and then turned into the server who delivered our food to the table. We were cheerfully greeted one afternoon... More

The food was excellent. I had the seabass thai special and my wife had the monkfish and king prawn curry, which were both amazing. This is the first review I've written, which surely speaks for the quality of the meal.

Absolutely lovely food served here. We visited twice in a week's stay from Tintagel. We enjoyed a divine fish platter the first time we came along with our son. We came back as the service, facilities and food were so good. The Thai sea bass was to die for!!! Child friendly and clean. Great place!!!
