What’s a traditional Cornish harbour without a friendly pub serving up good ale and fresh food? Well in Mousehole that pub’s The Ship Inn, and it’s something of an institution. You can’t miss The Ship Inn as it sits right beside the harbour and it has all the charm of an historic Cornish pub. Thanks to its harbourside location the pub makes a great spot to bask in the sun before heading to the small beach by the harbour or to enjoy a drink of something cold whilst looking out to sea - and it serves traditional hearty meals throughout the day too.
The roaring fire that burns during winter means The Ship’s just as welcoming on a wintry day when you just want to snuggle up with a book or plan your holiday itinerary so it’s a popular spot throughout the year. Speaking of winter days, this is one of the pubs that serves the legendary local dish Stargazey Pie on 23 December, and if you don’t know the story behind the pilchard dish then ask one of the locals when you pop into The Ship.
