We stopped in here en route from east to west, and found our way in through the back car park through a nice enough garden with kids equipment and dogs into the back of the pub restaurant. Not the most auspicious of entrances, past a...More

After reading your review I think you may have the wrong pub, as we don't have a car park, there is no children's equipment on site, our toilets are inside the pub, we don't allow dogs in the lounge bar, our music is certainly not...More

The website leaned toward locally sourced produce and if your food is cooked to order it may take a little longer. Our food arrived quickly and we would say the main parts (chips, mash, mushy pies and sausages) were sourced locally from ASDA. The staff...More

Visited the ship inn on many occasions while visiting Cornwall, food as always was exceptional. I ordered the curry and my husband had new york chicken, both meals where excellent.

Excellent menu and good food. Recommend the curry, shepherds pie and fish and chips - not all at once though :-). Excellent "Cask Mark" cellar serving St Austell Beers (HSD, Proper Job, Cornwall) and Bath Ales (currently Prophecy). Good selection of ciders, lagers and spirits....More

We recently started going here after trips to Pentewan. It's in good location and the staff are friendly. The wine is ok could be better and the beer is fine. They do these enormous milkshakes for kids with piles of sweets on which my daughter...More

When you order seafood in Cornwall and are sitting practically on the beach you expect it to be delicious but here it was tasteless ! The steak and ale pie had mushrooms in it as this was not advertised it was clearly a cheap filler...More

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.
