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.

    Great food and service as normal. Being a Monday night it was quiet as you would expect. The menu has plenty of choices to suit everyone and they also have a good selection of drinks, there should be something to suit everyone.

    Food was okay. Service was poor. The staff were friendly but very slow. They did not check if we were happy with our meal. We had to chase them up for a dessert menu and plates were not cleared away when we finished. We had to go to the bar to ask for our bill and had to wait for some time to pay.

    Food was fantastic but the service and wait times for service and the food were unacceptable. We had a table booked for 6pm and ordered by 6.30pm but we ended up waiting until well past 7pm for our starters. We were told that there were two large tables that had been served before us and that our food had been pushed back until after theirs was served.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal at Lanivet Inn. Only criticism was the batter on the fish was a little too greasy, which we did mention at the time. Will definitely return.

    Good food and service, but for me I had the phone ringing in my ear for the whole time I was there, that had a detrimental effect on our enjoyment as we couldn’t hear each other over the noise from other guests music and the constant phone ringing if your not answering the phone put it on answer phone after one ring .

    whilst staying in Bodmin we found the Lanivet Inn, the food was brilliant, pub was very welcoming and lovely staff and locals. Outside area was set up very well, we were very impressed with everything about our visit. Thank you for a lovely meal and a warm welcome.
