Fantastic food, lovely pub and very welcoming friendly hosts. Always make sure we manage to fit in at least one visit per trip to Cornwall!

Visited for dinner during our holiday. Food excellent quality. Friendly service. Steak and chips was perfect. The kids meal was brilliant and reasonably priced. If only I didn't live so far away.

Great location. Great food and staff. Cosy and unique. I love love love this place all year around but especially cosy and festive at Christmas time. Can't wait to visit next month with our friends. A proper old Cornish pub with a great atmosphere.

This was my third year holidaying in Cornwall and yet again we returned to The Ship Inn for a meal. The food is outstanding and the portions perfect. You can enjoy a starter, main and pud without feeling as if you've eaten too much. The service is wonderful, very friendly. And the atmosphere is very relaxing and friendly.

You can order take away meals and fish and chips, perfect for holiday makers and the local village. On our visit we all ordered the steak. Each one cooked to our order perfectly with... More
