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.

    Was a bit disappointed as have been to the Lanivet several time before and loved the quality of the food, but this time had a hunters chicken and had to send it back as it was chewy, they were very good about it and bought me out a lasagne instead, but it looked as if it was chucked on the plate and although taste was ok felt like it wasn’t up to standard. My husband son and friend had burgers and thoroughly enjoyed them l wish l had chosen that too.

    Good choice of St Austell cask ales. The latest one Anthem was on draught. Good pub food & decent portions. Friendly atmosphere. Only niggle really was that the tables were very close together so that we were jostling with chairs & overhearing loud conversations. Apart from that the overall impression was good

    Lively! Didn’t expect footie on TV and piped music. Nor live band later on. Good ‘local’ atmosphere, with good selection of beers, St Austell Brewery. Chicken burger had topping of sos, bacon and egg. Chips were lovely. Just visiting area but would call in again👍

    Booked a table for an evening meal during Easter holidays. Pub was busy with a mix of locals and visitors. Welcoming , friendly atmosphere and kids enjoyed using the pool table. We were warned that there would be a wait for food and kept informed about this. Food was tasty, good sized portions and steaks were cooked to perfection.

    Excellent choice on the menu and high quality food cooked well. We waited a while for our food because it was so popular (Friday 6pm) but were advised they were busy when we ordered and it didn’t matter as we enjoyed drinks and the atmosphere.

    Extensive weekday menu, reasonable prices (Sundays - roasts and a few dishes). Meat on the roast not very plentiful, seems to have been reduced of late! Bar area usually very noisy though so if you want to talk, request a table away from the bar. Dog friendly but unfortunately if you have a furry friend with you you'll have to suffer the bar noise.
