The ship inn is a welcoming Cornish pub situated in the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole. With stunning views of the sandy beaches or stormy waves The Ship inn is the perfect place to refresh & chat to locals, or snuggle up in front of the open fire and read a good book. We also have eight beautiful bedrooms (located within the pub and the cottage next door) for that perfect weekend getaway, family holiday or overnight stay before travelling to the Scilly isles. 'There are few things more pleasant than a Cornish harbour graced with a good pub and great ale'

We had a great welcome from the friendly and efficient staff. Our room had a view of the harbour and was very clean, comfortable, well designed and nicely furnished too. Breakfast selection was a great mix of buffet and freshly cooked choices. We also enjoyed the evening meals available in the pub. An excellent stay.

Our visit was a wonderful experience. Accommodation, kitchen and personnel was exceptional. The location in Mousehole is ideal, the bus connection to Penzance easy and the view is breathtaking. We will gladly come again and recommend the Ships' Inn to our family and friends. Thank you for the wonderful time. To visit Mousehole in January is a secret Tipp!

I had read the reviews before booking but even those don’t do justice to this fantastic pub and accommodation. From arrival to leaving we were treated to superb customer service and care from all of the well trained and happy staff. The position in the harbour is spectacular at this time of year when brewing storms make you grip your beer even tighter and marvel at the power of the sea. We were in room 5 and it was better than most 4/5 star hotels, spotless, looked just decorated, tasteful and above all so comfortable with magnificent dual aspect views up the harbour and out to sea. If the bar hadn’t been so welcoming we could have stayed in the large comfy chairs in room 5 and watched the world go by! Food was very well cooked even if by their own admission a little limited as stocks difficult to get during pandemic and at this time of the year, but we were very well accommodated with a couple of items not on the menu, so very helpful. We will be back soon, not soon enough…

We try to make an annual visit to Mousehole for the New Year period and stay at the Ship Inn. It is perfectly situated on the front of the harbour and the inside is warm and welcoming. Mel and her team work hard and do a great job to give you the experience that is required at this time of year. The rooms have been refurbished and give you everything that is expected from a hotel. The food is very good, to the point that we eat here every night. NY Eve was up to standard with complimentary fizzy and paties at midnight. Usual great stay, well done Mel and Co.

Mel and the team at the Ship Inn put on a wonderful New Years Eve. Great band, superb atmosphere, pasties and fizz at midnight. It couldn’t have been any better. The restaurant and bar staff are just so friendly and work so hard to make everyone’s visit special. Everything about our stay here was just incredible. The room (3) we stayed in was spot on. Very clean and modern with some lovely old pictures of Mousehole. Keep up the good work.
