We were on holiday for a week at nearby Trelowarren and went to The Ship after reading Trip Advisor reviews. Could not have been a better choice. The food was simply beautiful; easily the best pub food I have eaten this year in terms of flavour and quality - the menu isn't huge but it's got something to cater for... More

Cannot fault the food in this place at all and with very reasonable prices - I would have happily paid more for the standard of the food served (not often I can say that 😊)

Haven't visited The Ship for quite a while despite living only a few miles away up the coast. Last owners were offering a menu too complicated for it's own good, but oh boy has it now changed. Superb is not a sufficient superlative, everything was just extrasuperspecial from start to finish. Just read all the reviews and you will get... More

So great we went there twice in a week! The food was amazing... Our 9 year old son enjoyed his whole Cornish lobster! Really friendly and lovely atmosphere. Kid friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this pub. If you are on holiday in the lizard you must try it but make sure you book!

These guys are bang on with the whole deal. The pub is in a lovely quiet spot, the beer and wine is great and the food is something you'd want to write about. Home made breads, ice creams, fabulous fresh fish and wholesome meat courses. The only time I've eaten this well before I've paid serious restaurant prices. This is... More

Tucked away but really popular pub restaurant. Friendly staff and good service backs up very good food. Best to book a table to avoid being dissappointed or waiting too long. Good value all round and we would have no hesitation in going again when in the area.

We have eaten at The Ship Inn several times and we are very lucky to be close by! It is my favourite pub/restaurant and has never disappointed! Delicious food, great friendly service and a lovely relaxed feel, not too formal. Love the little touches like the table water without being asked, delicious homemade bread to nibble on whilst waiting for... More

Friendly staff & lovely food. Our children were presented with a pirates ship to play with by the friendly staff who were very attentive. The food was fantastic & the three course meal was great value. The restaurant was busy with locals & tourists alike which is always a good sign. Delicious.

Came here for dinner after reading good reviews. Seated without issue despite being very busy! Me and my girlfriend ate our way through 3 wonderfully prepared courses for £22 a head, which we thought was great value and there was no scrimping on the quality as every bit was delicious! Friendly staff who were appropriately attentive and the host lady... More

My wife, me and our 2 children had a lovely meal and drinks at this great restaurant. Very friendly owners, clean, great food, fair prices,..... Wished we lived closer (Belgium). You deserve a huge crowd.
