We walked from Penzance to Mousehole, and stopped here for a light lunch. I had the macaroni cheese, which was nice, tasty. The selection of ales and ciders were good, and it was a really nice little stop-off.

We stayed in Mousehole just after Christmas and over New Year. We choose to eat at The Ship on the first night of our stay and ordered 7 meals, ranging from ham egg & chips to the special which was chilli. The food was over cooked and the chilli was at best a joke. The rice was dry with a... More

As usual when the Christmas lights are on Mousehole was absolutely heaving, as was the Ship Inn. However, it was nice to see that lots of local people who we know were eating (and enjoying themselves) there. We had gone with friends to see the lights (for the umpteenth year running, but there is always something new) and had booked... More

Nice pub by the harbour but too busy and at times like a creche, maybe section off the small bar for families after 8pm ? On one occasion a family sat next to us whilst waiting for the lights to come on and bought a coffee and had a glass of tap water then proceeded to eat sausage rolls from... More

Have visited this lovely old pub several times in the past but hadn't been for many years. Arrived after long drive from London to find car park required 9 £ coins for machine for an overnight stay, with no option to pay by phone or app, which rather stumped us.

Disappointing again - cold plate, cold food, over cooked steak, average chips - shame because the service is friendly and helpful. Expect better in this central Mousehole location.
