Welcome to The Ship Inn, Pentewan

***Corvid-19 Update***

Here at The Ship, we have worked hard to ensure our staff and customers are safe during your time with us.

After a long, hard and worrying 15 weeks, the time has finally come to reopen our doors to all our wonderful customers, we have missed each and every one of you! From the 4th of July we bid everyone a warm return back into our pub, but of course, this will be with a new set of strict rules in place for everyone’s well-being.

Social distancing at all times

Enhanced cleaning and sanitising throughout.

Everyone’s health is our number 1 priority.

You will now notice: Hand sanitising stations throughout. Table spacing to ensure social distancing. Staff wearing PPE.

We have introduced an online app for your convenience to allow you to order your food and drinks from the comfort of your table…….no need for a trip to the bar! This is our favoured method of ordering, however, we are able to take your order at your table if this is something you would prefer, just let us know before you take your seat.

Inside the pub we are reserving tables with one-and-a-half-hour timeslots. Please contact us to book in advance.

There are now 3 large marquee’s in place in our Beer Garden, giving you the option of sitting undercover with your food and drinks, or out in the open. We will not be taking reservations for this area, but it will be manned by a member of the team.

For your own safety, we will be asking everyone who visits for their contact details.

All our team have undergone thorough staff training in line with new Covid19 policies. This is a whole new way of working for us all, so please bear with us during these times. All staff members here at The Ship will try their very best to ensure these new challenges impact your visit as little as possible!

This is tough! But so are we!  Please follow our rules and keep us all safe.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Kim & The Ship’s Crew.

If you’re looking for a good old fashioned country pub that just happens to be next to one of the best beaches in Cornwall – then you’ve just found it!

Not only that but we serve great food and stock stunning real ales. The Ship Inn is a truly lovely pub to stop and spend some time whilst you’re in Cornwall.

The Ship Inn is nestled right in the heart of the Cornish Riviera one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. Prove us wrong, come and have a look for yourself.

We’re a family friendly and dog friendly pub – so whether you’ve popped down for a long weekend, stopping off while walking the Cornish Way or down for the whole summer, you’re welcome to stop by, have a relaxing meal and refreshing drink. In the Winter months we have a crackling real fire to keep the chills out.

We have a public bar and two lounge areas along with a large beer garden over looking the old harbour where the sun shines all day long – well almost!  So why not pop by and live the dream with us.

wifiAt the The Ship Inn we try to keep a balance between giving you an authentic Cornish atmosphere along with modern facilities that enable you to have the most comfortable time with us.

The Ship’s History


It is thought that most pubs on the south coast of Cornwall called the Ship Inn would have been originally named after a local ship which had a special significance to people in the locality. More…
