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 service, lovely table for two, good menu and food was excellent.
Lovely set up
In garden. Food was delicious and good value for money. The staff were super friendly as well.
Good varied menu in a very comfortable pub large outdoor area also staff very good even though pub was busy
Very nice pub. Good value for money Sunday lunch, which was nicely presented and good quality. Lovely gravy! Fairly busy and a little noisy but to be expected. Would go again.
Very helpful staff letting us move tables as we were originally near the smoking table.
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!
Very good overall meal and hospitality
Huge portions of good food. Attentive staff although wait for food was a while, we waited nearly an hour for 2 main courses. Food was good though and I couldn’t finish my ribs as delicious as they were
Cannot fault, delicious food, fabulous cocktails and felt at ease due to the covid restrictions. Being local we wouldn’t try anywhere else, due to never having a bad experience. Highly recommend
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.
Side of garlic bread was soo good!!
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.
Great pub, glad we had booked as was really busy.
Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant cant fault food or service price reasonable
Fabulous meal as always, service was outstanding, very well organised and social distancing very safely managed.
Very average. Difficult to believe this is the top restaurant in Bodmin. The rest must be very poor!
Great food and service, a good example of how to emerge from lockdown.
Good overall but should have stocked 0% alcohol beers
Food is soo good never had a bad meal great size portions too!!
Delicious food, friendly staff, lovely outdoor seating
Due to the restrictions we had to drink and dine outside. The pub have made a tremendous effort to accommodate this with an excellent shelter, heaters and good social distancing. The drinks are good, I tried both Tribute and Proper Job, both were kept well and reasonably priced. My wife went for G&T which was as expected good. The food was excellent. It is good quality and the portions are very generous. There is a varied menu so something there for everyone. This will be a trusted venue on our next trip to Cornwall.
Came for 30th Birthday and was absolutely lovely! Staff were fantastic, the environment was friendly and loved they accommodated to bringing dogs! Food excellent. Definitely come again.
Fantastic venue great service beautiful outside area
What a pleasurable meal! Even though outside, it was warm, comfortable, and felt safe. The new menu has some amazing choices. The best of which is the 3 for £12 starters - all of which (we had four) were delicious. Friendly staff, a lovely enjoyable lunch. Thank you.
We love the Lanivet Inn, been several times for food and a drink and always had excellent service, great food and a fabulously served pint.
The outdoor area is very pleasant for eating. They have made it feel homely and inviting. Food was lovely. I liked that they had three sizes for Sunday lunch. We were told there was a delay due the volume of meals but actually it wasn’t long at all. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely eat there again
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
I have been to the Lanivet inn many times before & would like to say well done on the new undercover beer garden!! It’s brilliant!! 👏👏 & we were very grateful to be undercover with last nights weather. It was very cold & we were dressed for that, but frustratingly there was two gas heaters there but they weren’t lit? One was lit about 9.45pm & it made a difference so it’s a shame they weren’t lit earlier as I think people would have braved the cold & stayed longer & consequently spent more money with you.
The food was all lovely 🥰
One of our young female waitress’s could work on her bedside manner a little, she wasn’t rude and this is definitely not a complaint, but since asked to provide a critique I thought I’d mention it. Overall I thought the girls did a great job, especially having to be out in the cold all evening. But upon ordering each part of our meal we were quite abruptly asked to pay for each thing. This meant over a course of a meal we had to pay 4 different times. I totally understand due to the outside dining that you need to keep track of payment. It would just have been nice if at the beginning of the meal it was politely explained you have to “pay as you go”, which would save us having to fumble around for money each time & the awkwardness of who’s going to pay for what. If we’d have paid individually for each thing we’d ordered, 4x over, we would have spent more time paying for things than we did enjoying our gathering! It does have an impact on the enjoyment of the dining experience.
Anyway overall, we had a lovely time, loved the evening beer garden ambience & will definitely be returning!! Also loved the use of the app for booking a table (so easy!!) & really appreciated the fact that unlike many other places, your table bookings aren’t limited to 1.5/2hrs.
Well done team Lanivet Inn!! 👏👍🍻
Really well organised. Roasts were great. Child really enjoyed his food. Desserts were also really nice. Can’t wait to eat indoors again!!
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.
Won’t be returning.
Got greeted by a lovely lady and that’s when the positivity ends. We sat at our table proceeded to order our food and drinks. Staff were so unwelcoming and rude! Clearly did not want to be there! Which made us feel uncomfortable to even order anything else.
After we had finished eating all of our plates were sat there for a good 45 mins we even ordered coffees after food and they brought them out and still left the plates till we left. It wasn’t even busy to give them the benefit of the doubt.
3 different members of staff served us and all of them were blunt and rude.
Unfortunately we will not be returning or recommending.
Lovely people, really nice food, would definitely recommend
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.
Second time eating there within the space of 4 days. Food was good, service was spot on with no long wait for food.
Excellent all round very good food fantastic menu good ambiance and value for money
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.
As always superb food and service, lovely to be out and meet people again
