We popped into the Ship Inn for a drink several times during our short stay in Mousehole, and ate there one evening. The atmosphere is very traditional and charming - just what you'd expect from a British pub - very welcoming and relaxed. The views of the harbour are fabulous and it's location is just perfect for watching the boats...

Charming place to stay! Room was bright and modern, with a lovely view overlooking the port. The bar and restaurant were great too, with lovely selection of drinks. Can't fault anything. Location is breathtaking! :-)

We stayed two nights at the Ship. The first night we were in a small room above the pub but the next night we secured the top room in the annex next door. This room is more expensive but it is spacious and has good views across the Harbour. Food at the Hotel is good pub grub and the breakfast...

Although the Ship is run by the St Austell Brewery, it retains a traditional charm and is very popular with visitors and locals alike. Situated alongside the harbour there are amazing views of the harbour and Mount's Bay beyond. We stayed in room 3 which has breathtaking views from a bay window. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped...

This is only pub in Mousehole. The regulars are quite friendly. The pub food is good. We really enjoyed the fish pie, crab salad, smoked halibut. Not all one visit. The burgers looked good as did the dish and chips.. Menu changes a bit weekly. Did not stay in rooms.

A busy pub/restaurant on the harbour side that serves good quality meals and ales. Our first visit and staff made us more than welcome although it was very busy. Good portions of quality food served within a quick timescale. Not the cheapest you will find but well worth that slight bit extra. A good veggie dish is the Humous and...

This is one of those archetypal small British fishing villages. Set right on the harbour from is this quintessentially British pub offering accommodation. I stayed for one night on a motorbike trip on the reccomendation of a colleague. A fine suggestion. The room was well equipped, comfortable and offered spectacular views at sunset and dawn. The fact that the pub...
