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.

    Yet again an excellent experience & the Winter Saver Menu was good value with the garlic mushroom starter to die for. So were going back again tomorrow lunchtime as it's supposed to be the wife's turn to cook!

    As it was a wet Sunday night in November when we went to the Lanivet Inn, it was relatively quiet in the pub's restaurant. We discovered that on Sunday nights the menu is slimmer although a plus point was that it was still possible to have a Sunday Roast dinner in the evening. We enjoyed our meal which was good, tasty and very good value. There was also a good selection of beers and lagers on tap and a large car park.

    We had 3 tapas dishes to start with which 2 of them were very disappointing , crispy belly pork was very chewy and definitely not crispy and the chorizo bites very very very chewy , also could do with plates and cutlery and much to big to put in whole in your mouth .

    Lovely food and quick service. The only thing that spoilt the experience was the constant ringing of the telephone , which I can only assume was for Sunday lunch orders by phone.

    Service was brilliant, very thoughtful of restaurant to offer a sweet for our anniversary A little disappointed that the hot and spicy wings were not at all spicy But fillet steak, chips and chicken dishes were awesome. Tender and juicy meats; crispy and hot chips.

    When we arrived we was asked if we can move from the restaurant area to the bar area to eat. Because someone said it was to loud so we had our tables swappped. Through out our meal we noticed the restaurant area had loads of tables and didnt see the problem of why we had to move for someone. But the annoying thing was throughout our stay there was plenty of restaurant tables we could of ate at. Overall we felt this ruined our meal somewhat.

    We stumbled upon this place being only one night in the area and we both were delighted with our choices. Honestly we ate in Rick Stein’s cafe a few days before this meal and enjoyed your food more. We LOVE fish and ordered mackerel and mussels to start. If we had known how good the mussels were we would both have had them as mains not starter. That was our only regret! The mackerel was delicious. Mains of lamb chop as special was also v tasty. The sweet chutney on the meat was yummy. Local drinks available. Staff rushed off their feet (92 meals on a Tuesday evening) but remained on top of everything. This place is doing things right. Fresh fish and meats beautifully cooked and staff that actually want to be there. Thank you all.
