Dog friendly, children friendly, live footie friendly and Rugby live friendly. Always go in here for the great St Austells Stout, Mena Dhu. I am normally a Guinness drinker but got converted to the Mena Dhu last year. I love this place as the staff are Fab and very friendly, we were there on the day England beat the Welsh... More

Busy old place, I loved it... ✔ Friendly genuine greeting. ✔ Busy bar area. ✔ Fresh and clean toilets. ✔ Comprehensive menu, good pricing. ✔ Burger heaven for me 😇 (with chips, relish, cheese & salad) I loved it... Apologies for the late review, 'catch up'... NB. I've included a selection of my own photographs with this review... "Thank You"... More

Really nice pub, in a lovely location but really? £3.40 for a cup of coffee is absolutely outrageous. It is such a shame that they deem that a fair price when it is pure greed. Would not bother with the food when they charge those sort of prices for coffee.

Visited this pub for lunch after biking the Camel Way. Poor value for money. Overpriced mussels served with chunk of dry bread.

Stopped here for a drink while wandering round Padstow. Lovely setting right on the Quay overlooking the water. Lovely to spend an hour sat outside watching the world go by. Service was great and although we only had a drink it was very reasonably priced.

Had a great visit here on Boxing day, struck lucky as we arrived just before the blacky band, think that is.what they are called All in aid of charity. Still a decent pub for a drink and a meal in this tourist hotspot. Parking is very expensive in Padstow, puts you off going. and you need a second mortgage to... More

We have been to Padstow on a number of occasions but only visited Shipwrights for drinks previously. Having a toddler has previously made us reluctant to eat out but this holiday, we decided to try Shipwrights for one of our first family holiday meals out. After an initial enjoyable meal, we ended up coming to Shipwrights three times for meals... More

Sat upstairs overlooking the harbour, lovely and quiet compared to the busy bar area below. We were very impressed with the menu, very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. My mackerel was cooked to perfection, and the garlic bread was the best I have ever tasted (I raved about it for days !) We couldn't fault any of the meals and... More

I visited the Shipwrights Inn in Padstow whilst visiting my sister in Wadebridge. We walked the Camel Trail from Wadebridge and ended up in Padstow whilst their Christmas festival was on. After looking round the show we were very hungry and went to the Shipwrights Inn, and what a wonderful meal we had. I had the best rump steak meal... More
