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 ate on a very wet and miserable day meeting point chosen as halfway for family to meet up. The inn itself is old and quite interesting and looks better in the pictures but on our visit it was very flat and quite soulless. No fire in the log burner and not very welcoming. food was ok. Staff friendly and helpful.fish and chips overcooked and a bit dry,steak was tough and overcooked and curry was tasty but not very hot (temp). altogether okay but a bit mediocre. probably not a repeat visit for us. We were more interested in meeting family than worrying about complaints as I am sure they would have sorted it if we had bothered. Sticky toffee pud was excellent. Very Covid safe.

    We often visit the Lanivet Inn for a meal with visiting family. Such a nice rest for me to have my dinner cooked for me after all the Christmas cooking I've been doing! Meals were hot and delicious as always. The roast dinners are really wholesome and you can chose the size of your meal! Scrumptious puds as well. The staff here are lovely, always attentive and considerate. I always recommend The Lanivet Inn we think they're really great 👍

    Our first visit for many years, it was a convenient distance to meet friends. We were not disappointed, sat just inside the dining room we were able to talk and catch up easily. The service was attentive and faultless, the food delicious. We will return.

    We were originally told that there may be a wait for our food as they were short staffed. However, the service was excellent. The young waitress was helpful, polite and professional and did not let the staff shortage faze her. We didn’t have to wait long and the food was very good. Highly recommend.

    We booked this pub for a birthday meal as it had a lot of excellent reviews but unfortunately we did not have the experience we were expecting. Upon entering the noise from some of the other customers was deafening and their behaviour was unpleasant. The steak was lovely but the very few chips and peas looked as if they had been thrown on the plate. The Mac and Cheese was very bland but the garlic ciabatta was lovely. The onion ring 'side' was cremated and very expensive when you only get 3. We would have liked to have discussed our issues at the time but the staff appeared to be inexperienced and we didn't feel comfortable discussing any issues due to the general feeling we had during our meal.

    We booked a table for an evening meal for four. We expected to be in a restaurant area, but instead were seated at a table in the public bar area next to the pool table. Also in that area were 7 or 8 locals, male & female, playing pool and behaving in a raucous and loud manner, 'f' ing and blinding, getting louder as the evening progressed. At times several of them were lying on the floor, being very loud and foul-mouthed. One would have had to step over them to get to the toilet, or the bar. When we said to one of the waitresses that something needed to be done, she just laughed and said 'Oh, the locals? They're alright!' We asked where the manager was, were told upstairs, and with no offer to get him/her, we realised nothing was going to happen. The volume levels made conversation between us challenging. The restaurant area was sufficiently removed that the volume levels would have been less intrusive, the cavorting on the floor not seen. We had to make the best of it, finished our meal, duly paid, and left. How anyone can think that subjecting diners to that behaviour can be acceptable is beyond belief. I perfectly understand the need for a public bar area, but the two do not mix. We all live locally, have eaten there before (in the restaurant area), but will not be doing so again. Disgraceful.

    Seated immediately with menus. Drinks order taken within 5 minutes, food within 15 mins. Starters arrived in good time and all 4 were well received. Mains again arrived in timely manner and all 4 were good or even better. One of us got a carry-out box for the seafood jambalaya as there was too much. My steak was cooked perfectly and the 2 venison lasagnes were ‘first timers’ for 2 of us but well worth the risk. Service was attentive and pleasant- red challenging blonde (see other reviews about staff). Overall a better than average experience and definitely one to return to try out more of the fairly extensive menus. The only reason it wasn’t 5* all around was that I was seated less than 2feet away from the guests on the next table and whilst I know there are currently no covid restrictions, it still made me uncomfortable. I suspect had I asked, we could have been moved but it was very busy.

    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.
