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.

    We turned up to the pub and it was very busy. We waited to be seated to our table and no one came over to us so we decided to leave. The pub inside is in a bad state and needs to be redecorated.

    I had the cornish mussels, cooked just right and the sauce was divine. My husband had chicken and thoroughly enjoyed it. They are very accommodating if you want to change things. Staff are polite and efficient. One of our favourite places to eat.

    The food at lanivet inn is really really good. It’s homely, properly cooked decent sized meals which we really like. It was fairly noisy and rowdy but that’s to be expected with a football match playing on the tv. We have been many times and love it here.

    We elected to eat outdoors which was fine, but not to be recommended when children are let loose, as we found out.

    This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and plenty of it, but I have to say there was one slight problem which we mentioned to the two very helpful staff members who looked after us.....my wife and I both had beef and both of us really struggled with the inadequate condition of the knives.....steak knives with serrated edges would have solved the problem!!! We really did struggle!

    On holiday near here and wanted a table last minute. We booked in on open table anx was successful. Although we were both looking forward to our evening meal we decided to have starter which proved to be quite filling. This left us very little room for our mains which again were huge. The quality of the food was great, but be prepared for large portions.

    Food was very good and plentiful. Staff were very helpful although the pub became very busy we were not rushed in any way. Before our visit we “down loaded” a copy of the menu. Much to my wife’s delight, Lamb Shank was on the menu. and my favourite “Hunters Chicken”. The menu prices for the meals were £16.95 and £11.95 respectively. When we arrived and were seated the waitress brought us the menu’s. The Lamb Shank was not available as the menu on their website was a winter one and not summer. The web site and the menu make no mention of a “winter Menu”. Further the overall prices had increased and that of the Hunters Chicken had increased by £1.00. However, this is not a major sum but the Lanivet was selected because of the availability of “Lamb Shank”
