Reviewed yesterday NEW

had a casual lunch and a great family dinner here - dover sole was up there with the best I have ever had and half the London restaurant price. £5 for a basket of prawn crackers was a bit strange but apart from that everything was fantastic

My wife and I stayed in Padstow over the Easter bank holiday weekend and we visited the ship hotel everyday. We love popping in for an early drink before it gets busy and sitting and chilling in the court yard at the front, when the weather is good it can be a bit of a sun trap. We also had... More

This place looked busy from the outside nice sunny courtyard. Inside they clearly had had a busy lunch service, we sat in the conservatory end. Friendly staff from point of entry to a warm goodbye. Food is served all day with a good selection of specials available. We chose crab salad , which at £18 was rather pricey , but... More

The Old Ship was a good little pub that catered for the 10 of us. Sat in the courtyard and watched the world go by waiting for the kids to return from the town. All in all, OK.

Good space for children both inside and on the terrace at the front. The food is expensive especially the very ordinary burger at £14. Service good Also Disappointed having phoned to book a table and told no bookings being taken to get there before 12 and find a reserved table for 8 at 1.30pm

Called in to book a table for 7 people, which the bar tender had written in the diary when the manager came over, completely ignored us and told the lady who had written down the booking that she wasn't allowed to take bookings because it was the easter weekend! Now I understand that they were going to busy but the... More

Called in here on way back to our hotel and had a lovely pint of a local ale. Bar man was very helpful, welcoming and friendly. Menu looked good and the food we saw coming out looked very tasty. We would have gone back to eat but ran out of time

We had two meals in The Old Ship during our recent stay in Padstow and enjoyed them both. The gurnard and halibut were excellent and the service was friendly, prompt and helpful. Well worth a visit.
