I thought the pub across the water was good but it pales into insignificance compared to the Shipwrights. At first this thatched pub doesn''t seem much upon entering from the road with quite a small bar with a nautical theme but then you see the the terraced patio and verandah overlooking the river and you start to realise how characterful this pub is. The full-width doors of the verandah were open to the rain but the tables are next to radiators so it wasn''t cold sitting there. There are also 2 further rooms off the verandah (one may be a private function room) again with spectacular views over the water. St Austell Tribute and Skinners Porthleven were the ales on sale - not very adventurous but I forgave them. Almost impossible to get close to by car so leave yours in the village car park and walk 500m down the hill and over the little bridge.

Lovely thatched pub overlooking the Helford river, real ales well kept, the bar staff were very friendly and efficient and the locals were chatty. Didn't try the food but what was being served looked good. A good pub.

Wonderful pub with great food and beer. I gather it must have changed hands late last year/earlier this year and the new people are doing an excellent job. Lovely spot on the Helford River. The loos are now updated and spotless too!

Just reopened for Easter 2013. Didn't try the food but visited several times on our week in Helford. Very welcoming and well kept local beer. The views from the new rooms to the river are brillant.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Shipwrights Arms, a cosy but fresh pub right on the waterfront in lovely Helford. It has bright stylish touches and is a wonderful place to sit watching the water with a pint of Doom Bar or glass wine.
We went there twice for dinner over the long weekend, most of the ingredients are locally sourced and the menu states their heritage. We ate delicious huge Cornish Mussels, fish and (crispy, chunky handcut) chips, local sausages and rustic mash with a red onion gravy and a local sirloin steak - all very reasonably priced. Our lunch on Monday was great too, Helford Blue cheese and Brie Ploughmans, a truly lovely open crab sandwich on Vickys wholegrain bread and a pasty. The staff are lovely and we had a great time thanks The Shipwrights.
