Occupying a prime harbourside spot in the idyllic Cornish town of Porthleven is the charismatic and charming Ship Inn. The bar serves a range of local ales and ciders, while the food menu boasts an array of local fare including fresh fish and quality produce from the land. You can take a seat in either the welcoming lounge or, on sunny days, the picture-perfect outdoor area. In the evening, you can watch the fishing boats sail past - a fitting scene for a memorable Cornish meal.

For starters, I indulged in the local handpicked crab salad with buttery new potatoes. Washed down with local ale, it was an apt way to begin. Across the table, my companion's pilchards were excellently presented and equally tasty. It was impossible to choose a favourite main course between the two we ate; my rib-eye steak was cooked with precision, and my companion's main course of homemade fishcakes exemplified the wonderful flavours of the Atlantic. Combined with rustic wedges and a fresh salad, the food was hearty but well balanced.

I cannot recommend The Ship Inn highly enough; it manages to achieve the high standards of a top restaurant while retaining a genuine pub feel and real Cornish spirit
