We decided to pop to Mevagissey on the last evening of our holiday in Cornwall and have a meal, it was a lovely evening, very busy and managed to get a table at the Ship Inn. On first impressions, it was lovely old pub with a good atmosphere. The lady at the bar was very friendly when ordering food and... More

Our last evening of our stay in Mevagissey and we decided to eat at The Ship Inn, we had to wait over an hour for our food to arrive after chasing twice.... with two hungry children we felt this was very unacceptable. No real apology when food finally arrived. We were however told by bar staff that it had been... More

This is a lovely pub in the centre of Mevagissey. It has a lovely atmosphere which is due to the age of the pub. We were a party of 9 and the reason why I didn't give 5 stars is due to the fact we had to wait over an hour for food. However we came in at a busy... More

We called into this establishment to escape the crowds in Mevagissey. The Ship Inn is certainly typical of the old English ale houses. There are meals served but we only had drinks. The bar staff were pleasant & the pub is also dog friendly. The decor also fits the age of the hotel.

This is an annual haunt for us, as there is always a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Food is always good and reasonable prices. Look our for the specials board..I enjoyed bubble and squeak, pan fried with ham. It was brilliant and reminded me of childhood meals which made good use of those lovely Sunday lunch left overs.

After reading and hearing good reviews for this establishment, I finally made it there last week. However, my invited guest was not impressed with the cleanliness of most of the chairs - very stained upholstery. We arrived at opening time just for morning tea and coffee, but I am afraid to say that the coffee tasted very watery and bitter.... More

My husband and myself had lunch here, I had a tuna mayo sandwich which was huge, it came with a nice salad. Husband had the battered fish finger sandwich with lovely white fish. With a pint and a half plus side of chips it came to £19, but we were in Cornwall. The pub had loads of character the service... More
