We had a night here as an excuse to take in the famous Mousehole Christmas lights. We enjoyed our meal in the evening and the portion sizes left us feeling very full! Reasonably priced food & wine and we were very well looked after by all staff we encountered. We chose some interesting fish cakes with chorizo off the specials...

I have been in Cornwall for 3 days and have picked great accommodation and had wonderful food, until now. The Ship Inn is very disappointing so far. The room has a heating issue and the restaurant was appalling. The daily special of tempura prawns was inedible, I followed this with fish and chips which were frozen, poorly cooked and I...

Nice little friendly pub on the harbour with accomodation (we did not stay here, but at the Old Coastguard) but we had a meal. Good service and perfect for what we needed. Thank you all for a lovely evening.

Two night stay with family, occupying several rooms. We got there 1pm, and even though room was ready, they would not allow check in until 2.30pm. Double room overlooking harbour. Woodchip wallpaper. Bed large and very soft. Small table and one chair in small bay overlooking the sea. Though not much room, it was adequate for a short stay. Not...

We have been coming to Mousehole for years and one great consistent is the Ship. The menu has moved with the times and offers a good choice of decent pub grub but the pub itself has lost none of its charm and character. I love this place and never, ever get bored of it. Great beer and a proper pub.
