Don't be put off by the current scaffolding around the Inn. The welcome inside is genuine. Early May evening and it was busy, but not packed. Menu is a bit above standard pub fare and our meals were very good. The Lamb was cooked perfectly, but not sure the goat cheese side dish was needed! Beer is kept well and... More

Lovely pub in Fowey serving great beer and cider. Very dog friendly - barman even brought over a water bowl, biscuits and a sausage for our spoilt dog! The food was incredible!! Not your average pub grub, this is restaurant quality food. Definitely worth waiting for. I ate the pollock wrapped in pancetta, followed by the melted chocolate sponge. Delicious!!

Local beers and good selection of wines. We were too full for pudding but... More

We revisited this pub because it felt welcoming and there was a lovely open fire burning. We tried our luck at backgammon which brought back memories.

We popped in for a drink with 4 of our kids, aged 7 to 17. We received a warm welcome and from surveying the menu and looking at what was being served up to diners we will definitely be back. Lovely old Inn that is steeped in history.

We had dinner and drinks on our first night in Fowey in the Ship, the food and service was so good that we came back again twice and pretty much tried the whole menu. The shef has some serious skills, and all the bar staff are immensely helpful and friendly. If it's on the menu we recommend the fish stew.... More
