The Lanivet Inn has been run by Rob and Nat Liddicoat since January 2015. We aim to respect the character of a traditional Cornish village pub, where our customers can enjoy tasty, locally sourced, wholesome food at reasonable prices. It is a popular watering hole with locals and visitors alike, where you can enjoy a great pint in a friendly atmosphere. We serve a variety of award winning local beers along our three permanent ales – Trelawney, Tribute and HSD – with one ever changing guest ale from local to national breweries. We also stock a range of fine wines.

Why not come and enjoy perhaps the biggest beer garden in the Bodmin area or join us one our fabulous games nights. Every other week we have a quiz night and we have league teams in darts, pool, euchre and Bodmin inter-pub quiz. Along with our extensive menu and daily specials, we think there is something for everyone and are confident you will not be disappointed by your visit to the Lanivet Inn.

Had a wonderful time. Felt covid secure throughout my visit and nothing was ever a problem. Thank you to all staff. Recommend to all to book as lots where turned away even with plenty of Cornish rain

Delicious food. Booked ahead and were seated at the front of the pub instead of the beer garden, next to a busy road, plus music that was slightly too loud. However, none of the party could fault the excellent food and drinks.

Given the difficult circumstances the Lanivet has created a great setting, fab menu and good value for money. Shame about pay as you go although I’m sure they have a good reason.

A very fine Sunday lunch with the usual roast selection. Go for the large option if you’re really hungry - it’s huge! Outside dining was COVID secure with tables (picnic tables) well spaced out. Staff were attentive and friendly. Would certainly recommend if you are in the Bodmin area. Note - Lanier is a few miles outside of Bodmin town.

Good food and service! Good great value. Drinks bit dearer but possibly brewery related ?

Really enjoyed our visit! Lovely food, friendly staff and really helpful. Nice choice of cocktails aswell and wonderful vibes under the canopy outside. Just a note to other diners that you may be required to ‘pay as you go’ whilst the outside dining rules are in place.

I booked a table early because we all had work the next day. We then had to wait 1 hour and 45 mins to get our food, by which time we were absolutely frozen. I would have left but it was my sons birthday! There were also people that came after us that got served before us, not really acceptable. Whilst I appreciate that it was busy, this should be factored in in the kitchen.

We usually have a lovely meal but the wait was ridiculous and when our meals arrived my hunters chicken wasn’t great, my uncle had the same and the chicken was incredibly dry/over cooked on both.
Hopefully it was just a blip as what they have done outside looks amazing (they could do with a few heaters though).
We have roasts most Sunday’s from Lanivet and they are usually very tasty. It won’t put us off trying again.

We are regular visitors to the "Panda Inn" and have always been made to feel welcome and can honestly say have always received a great experience, even in these challenging times.

Apart from the fact we waited an hour to be served a drink it was a pleasant experience. Also bit disappointing the Sunday menu was a roast option only.

There was a very comprehensive menu and a lot of effort had gone into providing outdoor seating.
The staff were friendly and efficient coping well with the first Friday evening of trading since lockdown.
The food was good with very large portions and good value for money.

I think it would be good to have a vegan friendly dessert. However the vegan curry is amazing.

My son is a very picky eater and usually only eats burgers when we eat out and so it’s fair to say that he has tried many different burgers. He had the pizza burger on Monday and commented that it is the best burger he has ever had.

It's always good here, and the adaptations to the Covid rules haven't changed that. Great place to eat.

We were made to feel welcome during a difficult time. Customer service was outstanding. My only criticism is that the gravy on the roast dinner was not hot.

Me and my partner ate at the Lanivet Inn on Tuesday night. The staff were very friendly, attentive and kept to Covid guidelines. I ordered the Lamb Tagine and my partner ordered the beast burger... We definitely underestimated the portion sizes. The burger was huge! Great value for money and the Tagine tasted amazing. We will definitely be returning!
