A traditional local pub, friendly, welcoming and very popular. We called in early on a Wednesday eve and the pub was full by the time we left. They serve fresh, very good locally sourced food.

I just love everything about the Ship inn, the food, the staff and the atmosphere. You are always made to feel most welcome and the food is to die for. We have eaten here many times - 3 in the last month. The twice baked cheese soufflé mmmmm delicious. Thank you for serving fantastic food at reasonable prices. Long may... More

We visited this week with friends and have to say that the owners of The Ship Inn have a winning formula. The service was excellent, the food exquisite and very good value for money. We were recommended by friends and will definitely return on our next visit to Cornwall. The best by far in the area. Well Done

This was our second visit to The Ship and was equally as fabulous. The quality of the food, the flavours and the care taken in the cooking and presentation of the food is superb. You would be hard pressed to find such a culinary experience to match The Ship for the same amazing value. Thank you it was a lovely... More

We've visited the Ship for a number of years whilst on holiday in Cornwall but never eaten there. Well, what can we say, it was fantastic! So good we went back two nights later. Service was excellent and the food to die for, everything cooked perfectly and delivered at the right temperatures. The choice of dishes is good and Greg... More

We were part of a group of twenty three who had a family celebration on Easter Saturday. The restaurant was busy but the staff coped admirably and we all enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and good food. The service was efficient and friendly and we all had a good evening. Thank you.

The Ship Inn has a lovely cosy atmosphere with beautiful delicious food and a good selection of drinks. I had the lamb which was beautifully cooked, it melted in your mouth and was accompanied by really smooth potato mash which was bursting with rosemary flavour, the cheese soufflé was light and rich and the cheesecake was one of the best...
