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.

    An excellent Sunday Roast in a traditional village pub. Food was well cooked, well presented and with a choice of portion sizes. Car park was full (understandably), but there is easy parking on a Sunday close by.

    Our table (with a child) was right next to the noisy bar which was unacceptable. To be fair, we were then offered a table outside which was OK. The service was good and the food was delicious. We would not wish to be seated in the noisy and crowded bar to enjoy an evening out, with or without a child, but we would definitely eat there again.

    We had a lovely engagement meal at the Lanivet Inn on Oct 4th. We had a nice table and a lovely waitress (I didn't get her name but she was very young and slim with blind hair). The food was very well cooked and prepared, every one of us enjoyed our meals (and the draught Guinness was lovely too!). Desserts were a good size and tasty. I can honestly say that you get great food at a reasonable price here! Thank you to all the staff, especially our little waitress as she seemed rushed off her feet, but was very polite all the same. We would definitely visit again.

    Booked lunch for family because my parents are down. Dad and I had the philly steak ciabatta and my Wife and Mother had the cheese and chutney sandwiches. My Dad and I really enjoyed the steak ciabatta and I thought it was the best I had ever had and my wife and Mother enjoyed theirs too. The atmosphere and staff were wonderful, it's a nice big building with plenty of space and in the winter it has an open fire too. Food is locally sourced and the takeaway meals are very good too.

    The Lanivet Inn is a local pub to us so we have green here before and have had food delivered during lockdown. We love this place as the food is always good and hearty! The staff are attentive at all times and nothing us too much for them. Always courteous and pleasant to us and other guests. Good value as well if you gave a large family. We always go back to The Lanivet Inn when we can.

    We returned for a second evening at this lovely inn which buzzes with life and friendliness. We sat comfortably in the restaurant. Tonight we decided to have starters and desserts as the main meals are so filling we had to forgo those yesterday. Grazing and sharing plates great value and so tasty, our favourite being the monkfish bites. Slightly disappointed that there were only three smallish scallops in the starter, compared to all the other portions. Yummy desserts and more good beer and wine. Another great meal. We would definitely recommend the Lanivet Inn and hope to return in the future.

    There is a good sized car park and a nice garden with plenty of covered seating and heating. Inside the staff are very welcoming, we were sat in the bar area, so there were large tv's and a pool table. We were served by a lovely helpful lady. The menu is very extensive, there is definitely a good choice for all tastes. We had been warned that the portions are large, they are!! My husband had the big and meaty BBQ pork rib. Wow they were amazing, as were the chips. I had the hunters chicken which was delicious. Very tasty ale served here. No room for deserts. A lovely evening with the inn being used by locals and visitors like us.

    Not sure why but you have the call buttons on the table and no one comes over, Pressed 6 times and nothing! Booked for six people set for 5 people, Ordered drinks and didn't arrive for a good 15/20 mins, but ordered our food anyway, that arrived in good time.... Spilt a drink on the table and asked for a cloth and it got thrown at me not given to me.... Or even offered to get it cleaned up just made us do it.... Ordered 3 more drinks that still took a good 10/15 mins to do at this point & pub was quite.... Pressed button for the bill and still no one came to us.... So we went to the bar instead. Not sure why you have the call bells if you don't answer them and have to go to the bar anyway. Did order a steak and they did get mine n my sisters mixed up but food all in all was absolutely amazing, just a shame service wasn't the best, sorry guys I would recommend this place for food, but not for service I'm afraid.
