Had a fab meal out with the family. The place is lovely and welcoming and the staff were really helpful. We are always a little apprehensive about going anywhere with our young daughter in case she looses interest before the food arrives but the food was out promptly and tasted delicious so clear plates all round. Would highly recommend.

We popped into the Ship for a quick pint and ended up staying for many more. The people were friendly and the food coming out looked superb, would visit again

Dog friendly and with a lovely fire, great place to... More

Lovely old pub with open fire, low beams, and a very friendly cat! Food is delicious - slow cooked lamb and fish pie highly recommended!

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

Thank bobseastendcafe
