Really enjoyed our meal here. We had a little table near the open sash window, with a smashing view out over the estuary. Drinks on the quay before the meal and a smashing menu meant that unusually for us, we had 3 courses! Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed in Helford last week, so used the Shipwright Arms for food and just popping in for a quick drink. What a delightful place with super food. But the biggest asset of this pub is its charming young staff, who can't do enough to please you and go out of their way to make you welcome. I would highly recommend this pub.

We visited here for lunch whilst on holiday. During a break in the showers, we found a table outside on the terrace with a beautiful view of the Helford River. The menu was somewhat limited, but we both enjoyed immensely our mussels and chips in the sunshine. It's obvious that this is a new set up as the decor is bright and freshly painted, and we wish Hairy and Vicks every success in their new venture.

We have been visiting the Shipwrights for more than 20 years - and what a wonderful breath of fresh air Hairy and Vicks have blown into the place. Congratulations on coming up with some delicious new food ideas to go with the beautiful view and the usual excellent beer.
