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.

    Lovely local pub Roast was very tasty but wasn’t very hot , we waited a long time so didn’t want to complain as were all starving Unfortunately we were sat right by the side bar door and the phone was non stop ringing and wasn’t being answered The overall experience was good and the staff were very friendly

    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.

    We are locals and are usually amazed by the food and drink at the Panda Unfortunately I booked for the restaurant and was placed in the bar. When asking to change we were told the restaurant was full. The bar was extremely noisy (yes it was a Friday night so was to be expected) but hence the reason why I booked the restaurant in the first place 25mins went by and nobody came over to take food or drink orders In this time My partner went up to the bar to order but was told it was table service. They knew we were waiting but staff continued to not come over to us. Eventually we got up and left after waiting 30 mins with no service. My only good comment about our experience is Rob the manager went out of his way to give me a call on my mobile to apologise I am assuming once he realised we had left. We will attempt the pub again in a few weeks time and hope the experience is much better

    Had a good lunch at the Lanivet Inn, three guest had the tapas menu and it was great. The rest of the meals were also very good, small gammon with chips mushrooms onion ring egg and pineapple, peas and tomatoe plus two fish and chips. Did have to wait a while as there only seemed to be two staff but they did a good job of seeing to all the customers. Would highly recommend a visit.

    Amazing portion sizes, always busy but that can lead to a long wait for food. Hunters chicken was a bit over cooked and American fries with the burger were cold. On the whole still a great pub to visit, just a few issues as it was so busy.

    Food was spot on and service was spot on. Only thing that let it down is the waitress never returned the change. Was going to add to it to leave a tip but the original change never arrived back at the table
