New chef setting new standards in this pub with grub, serving local food well prepared and served with a smile. Lerryn is strateically placed between Lostwithiel and Polruan, very pretty and has one inn and a post office cum general store which is excellent. The inn serves visitors and locals equally.

Myself, my husband and baby visited for dinner as staying locally. We're unable to have dairy and staff were really helpful to accommodate us. I had fish and chips and my husband ham,egg and chips. Plenty of food and great quality probably the best pub meal I've had in a long time. Also great friendly service in a cosy pub.

Three of us called in to the Ship Inn last Tuesday and ordered Coffees, £2-60 a cup . Dearer than John Lewis's coffee shop. The pub looked tired with only one other customer and the food prices looked way too high.

We canoed up from Fowey and called in to the Ship for lunch. I have been here before but was unsure what to expect because some recent trip advisor reviews have been mixed. I could not fault it. I had a lemon sole veronique cooked to perfection and my husband had the home made beef burger. Both were delicious. The... More

Lerryn is the sort of village you want to keep to yourself, it's so attractive and away from it all. I've been a few times and always called in the Ship for a pint. I called in this time after walking around the point from St.Winnow and just wanted a sandwich and a beer. The sandwich arrived with a good... More

Once parked in the village car park (liable to flood at high tide - so check your tide tables), I entered the pub to check in, the staff were lovely and friendly, it serves a good selection of beers, ciders, wine etc but I found my room very basic and on the hottest day of the year, the window stay...

We visit nearby Polruan on a regular basis. We always have a drive to Lerryn. A lovely walk by the river and then our evening meal in The Ship Inn. Great welcome and lovely food at affordable prices. A good standard menu with a specials board. We are all vegetarian and we always find good choices.

On asking for a menu we were told that they weren't sure what food was available - had been busy lunchtime. "it will be a long time as 4 people already ordered" We were prepared to wait. mentioned...

This pub is well known and the only one in the immediate area.Lerryn is a lovely village on the river visited by many people,which is perhaps why the pub is somewhat shabby and tired looking. The night we visited was busy and the staff appeared overwhelmed and offhand. We ordered The lemon sole which was delicious cooked to perfection .The... More
