Was really looking forward to eating here but was left disappointed. Over priced for the quality of food, the chippy at the other end of the harbour looks much better value. Good size portions but fish over cooked and chips undercooked - how you can't...More

What has happened? This pub used to do great food but now it's awful. Had fish cakes which were dry and salad with no dressing - basic stuff which can easily be improved. Come on Ship Inn! - you have great staff, hardworking landlady and...More

We ate in the pub area. The food was very good and better than the normal pub fare. The clientel was very friendly and we had nice conversations with several people. This is the kind of pub we enjoy!

I do like the Ship Inn and the atmosphere, but perhaps its better suited to having a pint than eating. As a treat we booked a table for our last night with our friends from USA. I am saddened to say that the food was...More

Popped into the Ship Inn because our favourite cafe in Mousehole was closed so it would of been rude not to partake in a sneaky beverage. They had a wide range of Cornish beer, the staff were very friendly and the food looked good (though...More

We visited the Ship twice during our stay in Mousehole. It retains the feel of a traditional Cornish fishing village pub which is really nice. Food is good "pub grub" with a very extensive menu and daily specials. On one night the young children in...More

Popped in for lunch on Sunday - good tasty food and huge portions! The food was quick to arrive, pipping hot and a good sized portion. Staff were friendly and very accommodating.
