Dating back to the early 18th century, The Ship Inn is a splendid old building that, as well as being found in the main road through the village, also lies close to the sandy beaches of St Austell Bay.
Owned and personally run by local publicans, Chris and Linda, this large establishment has plenty to offer both locals and visitors alike.
The interior of this charming old inn is as full of character as its age would suggest and, along with the original ceiling beams, many other features have withstood the test of time.
From the inviting bar visitors can enjoy a variety of quality ales (we are in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide), with many beers from local breweries, as well as draught lager, cider and spirits.
Outside too there is much for the inn's customers: to the side and rear are well maintained gardens where there is there a bandstand, and also a play area for children.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
