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.

    A delightful Inn set on the old A30 now by-passed by the dual carriageway. The food and drink was just what you would expect from a good country pub and the service was spectacular. Well worth a visit.

    Beautiful pub, great staff, but the sunday roast was a disgrace. The meat was awful, the roast potatoes and yorkshire puddings were beyond dark brown and rock hard. Such a shame as it was going to be our new local. Maybe it was a bad day in the kitchen.

    Nice lunchtime meal, sat in pub as weather was changeable,though we do love to sit in garden where possible. Efficient friendly staff greeted us, and served us drinks quickly. The men really enjoyed the Hicks. Fish and chips were very good as usual, and the Beef Madras was spot on ! Covid precautions have been maintained, staff and most customers continue to wear masks. Tables remain socially distanced. Food service was efficient and friendly, One of our favourite pubs. ,

    Quiet pub in pleasant location. Very friendly and helpful staff with a Covid safe set up. Food portions were large, especially the children’s meals. Good value for money. Wished we’d booked the lovely outdoor seating area.

    We love the Lanivet Inn, I have some dietary requirements which are not always met on the very varied menu this time. The Manager was so very helpful and ensured that I had a delicious meal which met my dietary requirements. All the food they serve is Hot fresh and delicious. The staff are all pleasant, efficient and helpful. It is always a really lovely dining experience when we eat there. Have to book in advance as is very popular for really good reasons. Would highly recommend

    I have always loved everything about the Lanivet Inn but was very sadly disappointed. We were overcharged on our first round of drinks. The service was slow - we waited 30 minutes from ordering, when the food came the only thing edible was the meat (lamb) but even that was very fatty and gristly. Spoke to the manager who reduced the bill but as we were there for my daughter's birthday it wasn't much compensation

    Everything from start to finish was as we would expect. Great service, huge portions of quality food. For a busy pub the food was flying out and nothing going back. Desserts were just as big as mains. Will definitely be going back.

    We went to the Lanivet as there were 3 vegetarians and 1 vegan in our party. We were attracted by the good selection of dishes available - more than the standard one or two. On arrival we were warmly greeted and received attentive, friendly and timely service throughout our visit. The food was delicious and portions were generous without being excessive. We felt that the dishes were very well priced too. We will definitely be returning to sample more of the delicious menu. Keep up the good work!

    Excellent meal as always. New menu is great. Service at the table a little slow and drinks order wrong. Main meal arrived in good time but desserts took 40 mins to arrive. Was told by server that they were short staffed and servers having to cover the kitchen but will be booking again soon.

    Very busy Sunday bank holiday weekend so inevitable delays in taking orders and serving food. Ran out of the roasts which was fine and we were offered the usual menu - really good range of food, drinks and desserts. Staff friendly but could have updated us a bit more rather than us asking. Food good and hope to return for the roast!!

    Very disappointed as read a lot of good reviews. Where do I start... as soon as we entered the bar it was a mess, with empty bottles behind the bar as well as glasses stacked half way along the bar. The queuing area was not clear. Paper menus that were not cleanable. With just a general chaotic atmosphere with staff. We didn’t eat as waited 10-15 to not even be offered a drink or get the staffs attention.
