My wife, daughter and I have just returned from three wonderful days in Cornwall statying at The Ship.
Without a word of a lie it was probably one of the best and most memorable breaks we have ever had as a family. We could not have enjoyed it more.
The pub was everything a proper pub should be and far more besides. It is what it is! It is not posh or flash but that is the point. Flash, posh, sterile pubs with table numbers, and highly coached staff, is exactly what we don't want and hate!
The biggest compliment I can give 'The Ship' is that as a lover of great traditional pubs such as 'The Square and Compass', or 'The Cherub' in Dartmouth, The Ship would be right up there in my top 3 of all time.
On arrival we were given the warmest of welcomes, and this lasted throughout our stay. Harry you are a star and we loved your wicked sense of humour.
Food was outstanding. Fish as fresh as you will find anywhere supplied by Richard the local trawlerman ( who we got to know) or bought daily at the fish market. The mussels were to die for ! Great selection of Real Ales.
The location was another amazing bonus situated on the banks of a beautiful estuary.
The icing on the cake was that we were all invited to a 60th birthday party on the Saturday night and made so welcome by the locals!
Thank you all for everything. We will be back as soon as we are able.
