Description: A delightful old, unspoilt Cornish village pub full of character and very welcoming. Dog friendly,large beer garden across the road for those lovely sunny days. In the winter after a lovely walk on the beach, come and relax in front of our roaring fires, we serve quality Ale from St Austell Brewery. We also serve a selection of hot drinks. Food is served every day. Here at The Ship,' You don't have to be local to be treated like a local you just have to come and see us'We look forward to welcoming you.From all the crewe.

we have been to Pentewan Sands for the last 9 years, and our highlight is visiting the Ship Inn in Pentewan Village. we always get a great warm welcome from Kim and her Team. The atmosphere is fantastic, great Halloween Party and the Quiz is great fun!! thoroughly recommend this pub to all.

As been here previously when on holidays, we thought we'd pop over to "the Ship" for sunday lunch.. and no complaints!! Yummy Sunday lunch, tender port and good choice on veg, though not massive selection! Everything cooked nicely and kept hot. We both had desert and not disappointed!! Lovely little pub and two minutes walk from the outside of Pentewen Sand. Friendly service and good choice of alcohol beverages! Worth a try...

Whenever my wife and I visit our daughter in cornwall we all look foreward to visiting the ship in Pentewan. Whether it is for a great pint in the garden overlooking the old harbour or for a meal.
We have tried quite a few dishes but the steak and the cod and chips are always particularly good.
Last week we went on a Thursday and we tried the carvery, it was one of the best that I have had lovely Beef and plenty of fresh Veg all for under a fiver fantastic!
Staff all very pleasent and welcoming always a great atmosphere.

Very disappointed with our Sunday lunch on Sunday 22 September. We had the beef. It was tough and chewy with very little flavour or taste. Yorkshire puddings were very stodgy . Very little choice of meat only beef and pork. Not a good start to our weeks holiday. Would not recommend this to a friend.

Dear Liz,

We rang Lobbs Farm Shop (our meat supplier) on Monday 23rd Sept to complain ourselves as we were not happy with the quality.

Lobbs have a very good reputation and the meat we serve from them is normally first class.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your Sunday Roast.

the meal was great very friendly nice atmosphere and free village parking just a few yards away. After your meal it is only a short walk to the beach to soak up the sea air
