Mousehole The Ship Inn, Cornwall


  • Located in Mousehole, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • If you're searching for a pub overlooking a classic Cornish fishing village then Mousehole's The Ship Inn is as good as it gets in Cornwall.* Situated behind Mousehole Harbour, the pub is above a large low tide area of sand with views across to Mousehole's chunky, famous harbour walls. Beyond those is St Michael's Mount in Mount's Bay. Accommodation is available. We provide an external link to Mousehole The Ship Inn's website to book a room
  • Mousehole The Ship Inn is by the South West Coast Path so it's a welcome stopping place as you follow the coast from Penzance and Newlyn down to Lamorna Cove and beyond
  • On Tom Bawcock's Eve, Stargazey pie is served in Mousehole and at The Ship Inn. The festival is held on 23rd December to celebrate Bawcock's heroism when he sailed into a storm to end a famine in the village. If you have kids, it's likely they've heard the story of 'The Mousehole Cat' by Antonia Barber. The author was inspired by Tom Bawcock's bravery
  • *In terms of location, other harbour pubs we'd recommend include Port Isaac The Golden Lion, Porthleven The Harbour Inn and St Ives Sloop Inn. Sennen Cove The Old Success Inn is in a very special place near Sennen Cove Harbour
