In the scenic fishing town (and famous tourist hotspot) of Padstow, you will find The Old Ship Hotel. This Grade II listed building has been around for some time, but these days it is home to a charming hotel and restaurant.

The Old Ship offers a choice of single, twin, double and family rooms for overnight guests to choose from, with all rooms boasting ensuite bathrooms, Freeview television, secure safes and hot drinks facilities. Spend a bit extra and you will also be guaranteed four poster beds and views across Padstow’s famous estuary.

Hotel guests eat breakfast in a private dining room, while at lunch and dinner time, they can visit the hotel restaurant, which is also open to the general public. The Old Ship restaurant prides itself on making the most of Cornwall’s natural local produce, with every meal that comes from the kitchen being cooked fresh (which also means that most special requests or dietary requirements can be catered for). Because of this commitment to sourcing ingredients locally, the menu here changes regularly, with guests able to choose their meal from the specials boards written up on the wall. No matter when you visit though, you can always expect to find a range of both hearty filling dishes and lighter options, with fresh fish and seafood playing a large role.

On your visit, you might begin with the likes of hot and spicy chicken wings with a sour cream and chive dip, or perhaps a portion of calamari. For your main course, choose between dishes such as beer-battered fish and chips, wholetail langoustine scampi or a five bean chilli con carne. Wrap things up with one of The Old Ship’s tempting puddings or indulge in a liquid dessert instead, thanks to the restaurant’s European-led list of wines and Champagnes.
