Know The Ship well although haven't eaten there in awhile, dinner last night was as usual absolutely delicious, my crab starter light and tangy, we all loved our main courses and the desserts which we shared, being to full to eat one each, were scrumptious, oh and the wine lovely also. Well worth a visit but booking at this time... More

We had a very good meal in a very cozy dog-friendly restaurant. We were late because we got confused about the 2 restaurants with the same name. One was in Portleven but we made reservations for Mawgan in Helston. The staff was very nice and service was very efficient and helpful (Josh?). I had a filet with bearnaise sauce while... More

We went with family and friends for a meal on a Tuesday evening and were met with a warm welcome. Friendly staff and great service with meals cooked and served quickly despite the restaurant being quite busy. They even brought a wooden pirate ship toy for the children to play with while we waited for the food. Would definitely eat... More

Lovely friendly atmosphere in a family run pub and restaurant. A home away from home with incredible food, takeaway fish and chips and great service!

The owner of the Ship Inn used to be Head Chef at the nearby New Yard Restaurant on the Trelowarren estate. We loved his food there and he has brought the same high standards and attention to detail at The Ship Inn. Ostensibly this is a pub, still frequented by locals (I say that as a good thing - it...

We arrived at around 5pm on a Saturday night hoping to get a takeaway fish and chips with my two year old son (they advertise this offer). At first they told us they were too busy. I asked whether they could just do one childs portion (as Frank getting a little grumpy and hungry) and they then said they could... More

Ate at the ship again last night. Love this place. Friendly staff, always accommodating, great with the kids. Consistently consistent food and service. Special mention to the beetroot and goats cheese dish, thoroughly enjoyed...will be returning soon. See you Friday! Can't wait, mmmm

We've been here every time we come to this part of Cornwall, every few years. We had a delightful crab starter followed by pollock which was beautifully cooked with a wonderful crust & gorgeously al dente vegetables. Just had enough space for home made black currant ice cream. No wonder you have to book. The chef is consistently excellent and... More
