Got there late Sunday afternoon - only food available was a chicken dinner which was not spectacular - potatoes were very odd! Struggled a little with a wheelchair user as access points were quite tight Staff were nice and friendly

Well located Pub in the beautiful village of Mevagissy. Typical pub menu at typical pub prices. The Wi-fi was a bit naff but the staff service was pleasant and prompt. The food (chicken curry, tuna and baked potato, chips and garlic bread) was delivered to our wobbly table promptly. Baked potato was small and overcooked so my lad didn't eat...

We decided to pop to Mevagissey on the last evening of our holiday in Cornwall and have a meal, it was a lovely evening, very busy and managed to get a table at the Ship Inn. On first impressions, it was lovely old pub with a good atmosphere. The lady at the bar was very friendly when ordering food and...

Our last evening of our stay in Mevagissey and we decided to eat at The Ship Inn, we had to wait over an hour for our food to arrive after chasing twice.... with two hungry children we felt this was very unacceptable. No real apology when food finally arrived. We were however told by bar staff that it had been...

This is a lovely pub in the centre of Mevagissey. It has a lovely atmosphere which is due to the age of the pub. We were a party of 9 and the reason why I didn't give 5 stars is due to the fact we had to wait over an hour for food. However we came in at a busy...

We called into this establishment to escape the crowds in Mevagissey. The Ship Inn is certainly typical of the old English ale houses. There are meals served but we only had drinks. The bar staff were pleasant & the pub is also dog friendly. The decor also fits the age of the hotel.

This is an annual haunt for us, as there is always a good atmosphere and friendly staff. Food is always good and reasonable prices. Look our for the specials board..I enjoyed bubble and squeak, pan fried with ham. It was brilliant and reminded me of childhood meals which made good use of those lovely Sunday lunch left overs.

After reading and hearing good reviews for this establishment, I finally made it there last week. However, my invited guest was not impressed with the cleanliness of most of the chairs - very stained upholstery. We arrived at opening time just for morning tea and coffee, but I am afraid to say that the coffee tasted very watery and bitter....

This beautiful pub is full of charm and is a true gem. The drinks are kept at the right temperature and the food is lovely. The food is well priced and the portions are good. The staff are friendly and made us feel very welcome. If you want a lovely meal served in a beautiful traditional pub then this is...
