The Ship has a great atmosphere, extremely friendly and helpful staff, excellent food and well-kept beer. On a very cold night I had roasted tomato soup followed by a large portion of fish and chips. Both were excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely cosy old pub with excellent grub and nice staff and service. Dined here 3 nights and loved the food. The fish and chips are far superior to some of the more expensive places in fowey will be back

Lovely atmosphere, real old fashioned pub with beams and open fire. Food excellent, we only ate there once but all was brilliant. Recommend this one for either a drink, food or indeed both.

We visited Fowey for a birthday weekend and went into the ship Inn. It has a real feel about it with friendly bar staff and the food looked really good although we didn't eat as we had a table booked in our hotel. Definitely worth a visit especially if you like St Austell ales

After decades of visits to Fowey we finally stepped over the threshold of this flower- bedecked town pub. We only had a swift drink on that occasion but were impressed by a friendly barmaid enough to want to return for food. That was back in July.

Young landlord is not short of conversation, and serves food with well kept cellar. Easy to imagine the dark haired fellow in the corner with a couple of likely lads is a pirate king working out a plan to beat therevenue men.

We had an evening meal here and we were impressed by the quality and service. It is very good value and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Will definitely go back next time in Fowey.
