WELCOME TO THE SHIP INN
All the crew welcome you to The Ship Inn Porthleven
The Ship Inn is a 17th century pub overlooking one of the most picturesque harbours in the country; come here in the summer to watch seabirds and fishermen go about their business in the sunshine, or brave the storms in winter to sip a perfectly poured pint by the large open fire.
Beer mats and brasses adorn ceiling and walls in this old fisherman’s haunt, whilst flagstones and floorboards lay under foot. A terraced garden with ample seating gives a good vantage point to take in the village with a perfectly poured Cornish pint!
To the rear of the pub is the old Smithy (from the days when Porthleven exported china clay) this has been converted in to a function room with high speed internet, music and TV. The room can be hired for any function and has the option of a private bar.
In the summer months our outside Orlop Bar provides the perfect place to relax right by the harbour in the sun, pint in hand with a soundtrack to match. At high tide the quay opposite offers the perfect place for watersports, crabbing, swimming and sun-worshipping. We have a spacious and floral terraced beer garden offering panoramic views of the harbour and village of Porthleven – a lovely spot from which to watch the tide come and go.
