We ate here twice whilst holidaying in Pentewan. On both occasions we ordered and the food arrived at our table five minutes later. Now, either this means the pub has a brilliant chef or the meals are cooked and kept warm somehow. Each time we...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.
