The Shipwrights Arms is a traditional thatched pub, located directly on to the iconic Helford Creek which flows into Falmouth Bay. The pub has been extended in recent years to provide additional seating with a more contemporary feel. Oak and slate flag floors, large log burner, individually selected furniture and interesting decorative style with a nautical feel make it the most perfect location to enjoy a drink or of course a meal. An additional eighty covers are located on the exterior terraces, all with amazing views down the river. An outside Pizza station takes the weight off the kitchen during high season, hand rolled and cooked in a stone base oven.


Our menu is ever changing rather than set plus specials, menus are printed daily.

All members of the kitchen team are encouraged to be involved in the menu creation, suggesting meal options, themes and style.

All meals are planned, prepared and produced in the pub kitchen, we do not buy in ready to use food options.
