About The Ship

The Ship’ is as much the local’s local as it is the visitor’s retreat, offering the perfect afternoon stop, evening out or weekend escape. Our bar has an array of great local ales, quality wines and soft drinks. We also stock the usual and sometimes not so usual selection of whiskies, gins, rums and other tipples.
Our hearty homemade menu is bursting with well known British classics as well as some of our own creative seasonal specials. Our team of chefs use all fresh and where possible local produce to ensure quality and freshness in every dish, and hopefully give you a flavour of the local area.

Enthusiasm and smiles are hard to display when wearing a mask, the ladies managed brilliantly. All in all a very pleasant meal and evening. Thanks.

We a lovely meal, can't fault it. Tables all had a bottle of water with flowers in, unfortunately they were dead but left on every table, not inviting. People walking in from the tables outside to use the toilets no one was stopped to use the anti-baterial wash during this Covid Pandemic.

I booked but didn’t come due to be rudely spoken to on the phone. I was made to feel very stupid and patronised. I’ve never been before and was due to come with family (4 of us) which would have actually been 6 in the end. I called and asked if my booking request of a table outside was okay. To be told repeatedly we don’t do reservations outside, which I understood the first time. Then it changed to we’ve never reserved tables outside, I responded that I’d never been before and it quite annoyed me actually, made me feel a bit foolish. I’d heard nothing but good things about the food and atmosphere in there so raved to my family, especially because of the gorgeous view. I can honestly say I was so disappointed and didn’t want to come along to feel uncomfortable. Whom ever the girl was I spoke to needs to realise people might not have been before and be more polite over the phone, if the service is like that just by phone I dread to think what it could be like face to face. I’ve ran restaurants and realise how frustrating it can be, whether a worker or manager you treat your guests as if they matter! It’s a shame something so small can ruin someone’s experience.

We were made extremely welcome. Staff very friendly. The young lady who served us was so willing and attentive without being over the top. Love your Sunday dinners - can't wait to visit again. Thank you all.

We’ve been to the Ship several times lately and the food, drinks and service are all absolutely top notch. I felt extremely safe in the current climate and the Sunday roast just does not get any better. Highly recommended, one of the best eateries in this part of the Wirral

Great location and the food was brilliant. If I had one comment to change or adjust anything it would be the mattresses as very springy so not a great night sleep and the old wooden floors creaked every time you moved. This was tricky when in a family room with a sleeping child who you don't want to wake!! Overall though, staff cleanliness and food was great and it served it's purpose for visiting family at short notice.

Food was nothing special. Had roast dinner which included plain steamed veg. Staff would rather stand and chat at the bar- even after getting their attention. Girl who finally came for us to pay stood right next to me, I moved away and she moved even closer! I asked her to stand back and she moved a pathetic distance away, is social distancing not being encouraged to staff?
