We stayed at The Ship Inn for two nights and ate there both nights too. It clearly has a lot of local clientele, but it's not to the exclusion of others, and helps to create a good atmosphere. We were made to feel very welcome by all of the people working there. There were very tasty, pretty imaginative vegetarian options for the evening meals, and the desserts were worth a special mention (my husband, being an expert consumer of desserts, was most impressed!). Also worth a mention is the real ale - we were in Cornwall for ten days in total and the Dartmoor Ale was the biggest hit of all those that hubby sampled.
It gets very busy. They had kindly reserved a table for us on the Thursday, and we were wise to do the same on the Friday.
