We stayed for two nights at the Ship Inn. I knew this place when it was a pub some 40 years ago. OK everything changes but.... We cannot fault the room we stayed in, when the shower did not work, the owner was there to offer assistance and arranged for us to have some soap. They were not too generous... More

This is a lovely old pub, full of character and history. Friendly owners and nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable room with double aspect windows with lovely window seats to sit and watch the world go by. Shower in the bathroom was a little 'tired' but nothing to complain about. Good choice of food, very busy in the evenings, so... More

Situated right in the heart of the busy fishing village the Ship Inn is ideal for a short stay. The room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom clean and modern. There is parking close by for a small charge. The bar downstairs is very traditionally cornish and has plenty of local characters, and the night we stayed a cracking... More

A proper pub with a great selection of ales. the food menu looked good too although we didnt eat when we visited. Real old fashioned decor and a great friendly feeling. My dad always used to judge a pub by the condition of the toilets, his thinking being that if they are clean, then the rest of it will be... More

The bar is nautically themed with much timber and flagstone floors. It is dark and cosy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed B&B and were given one of the newly refurbished rooms which was tastfully done, although the passages and stairs still need attention. Our breakfast was superb, with quality ingredients and cooked to order. Although... More

Stayed here for one night with a pal whilst walking the SW Coastal path. The twin room was of a high standard and the breakfast was great. Would highly recommend for walkers needing to stay in Mevagissey.

This traditional Cornish inn is located in the pretty, fishing village of Mevagissey and it is less than a minutes walk to the harbour. It is a St Austell Ales inn and serves a good choice of their ales both on draft and in bottles. The menu is the standard St Austell offering but uses locally sourced produce and has... More

Just spent a lovely weekend in the very cosy Ship Inn. Good atmosphere in the bar and though not much choice as out of season our first night dinner and breakfasts were good. The Ship makes a good base for touring - we went to Fowey, Truro, Charlstone and The Lost Gardens. The harbour area is very pretty too. Our... More
