Great return visit

We go out each month with our friends trying different restaurants around Cornwall and the Ship Inn is still our benchmark to beat and as yet it is still no. 1, great food, great service and great value.

We have been visiting the Ship over the last four years and have always had a lovely welcome and very good food. Beef carpaccio is a favourite and pollock was elevated to a new level ( not an easy feat ) with a crumbed topping and superb creamy mashed potato. Desserts are always mouth-watering and the wine list has something... More

There is not much what is not good the food is perfect and we don't know how Alie dos it but there is always a smile. If there is anything to see the location is a bit dark and dated. But that is all well done Alie and Greg

We went as a group of 11 on a girls night out. We were seated in the snug which is a lovely cosy room great for a party as it feels like your own private space. The staff were very welcoming, service friendly and our food was served in great time considering it is all freshly made. The food was... More

Although we live in the area we had never previously visited the Ship Inn and called in hoping to be able to get a table. The fact that it was nearly fully booked on a Wednesday evening was a good sign and we were accommodated in the bar area. Service was warm and friendly and the food was excellent.

We had two meals there recently, the first just my wife and I and the second with another couple. On both occasions the food and service were outstanding, we particularly enjoyed the slices of wild garlic bread brought to us before the meal. The Cornish Rattler cider on draught was particularly welcome and the bottle of South African Pinotage quite... More

The food is delicious and the service excellent. We have been as a couple for a romantic meal and several times in a large group. The beef brisket is superb.
