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.
Service wasn’t it’s usual prompt self. Waited 50 minutes for 5 x Sunday Roasts. After the meal we were asked if we would like to see the dessert menu which after 10 minutes didn’t arrive so we had to get them ourselves and then decided it was probably better to give it as miss. Haven’t experienced this in the past so I can only assume it’s a one off. We live in Cheltenham and when we come up to visit family the Ship Inn is often a good place for us to meet.
It was probably a quite busy evening. Nevertheless staff seemed to be a bit unorganized. Had to wait quite a while to be seated. Waitress didn't know what kind of real ales were offered. After that, food order went smoothly and food was prepared inppropriate time. The quality of the food however was only slightly over average. Maybe just a one-off, since other guests seemed to be pleased.
Lord Nelson room excellent with terrific views of the estuary. Additional benefit was the secure car park. Didn't enjoy Dinner on Saturday the pub was very busy and a bit raucous, food was slow in coming. We should have asked for a quieter table in retrospect. Cooked breakfast was good but very slow in arriving considering the breakfast room was not that busy.
Great place, lovely food, staff were excellent. Will stay again.
Quality of food was good but many dishes weren’t available as they had run out. Our reservation was at 7pm so not even late in the evening. Waitress service was very good.
First night (Saturday) restaurant smokey with fumes from fire but sorted out in time for following evening
GT8 food & service. Keep it going gang!
Brought my husbands 97 year old mum. She really enjoyed it. Food was excellent and service very good.
Gets very noisy
With a table of 17 you can never be quite sure what the service and food will be like but we were very impressed with the quality of both. Our food order, which was sent prior to our visit, was correct, brought at the same time and was delicious. Staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The set up of the table felt sociable as not just long and thin. We had a great birthday celebration here with many thanks to the team at The Ship.
Great food. Fabulous service. Amazing views! Well priced!
Great pub/hotel in fantastic position. Food and service excellent. Would recommend.
Good food, but very poor service. When I’ve been previously it has been table service, this time we had to ask for menus, waited about 40 minutes for staff to take our order, nobody came to take it, I found a member of staff and asked could they take our order when someone was free. A male member of staff came and took the order and he was very hostile and abrupt in manner. It’s a shame because it normally is good food and service.
Good food and drink friendly and hospitable small hotel in a beautiful location.
Food was amazing! Just service let us down a bit, no check back and had to ask for plates to be cleared etc, other tables had check backs. The girls were lovely tho, was just little tweaks etc just felt like we were forgotten about. But we will be back!
The pub was far too cold, and despite having radiators on these did not produce sufficient heat. One of our party (because the pub had to re-cook a meal) did not receive his meal until the rest of us had nearly finished our meal, which really wasn't acceptable. Also the service was very slow.
Excellent from start to finish.
Good food friendly service
Always excellent food, drink and service, in lovely surroundings.
Fantastic, tasty meal with a vibrant ambience. Highly recommended. Excellent staff, food and service as always!
Our puddings never arrived, so we asked for the bill in order to go home. When we checked it, it totalled£39 + but included a variety of coffees and wines that we had not ordered or received. When this was pointed out to the waitress, she did go through the bill and adjust it accordingly. The correct total was£22+. This is a large discrepancy, and had we not checked we would have had a very expensive lunch!! I had taken a friend and had told her how nice a place it is to go out for lunch. I was disappointed ,as usually the service is excellent.
I have stayed and eaten at The Ship at numerous points over the last 6 months and the service never wavers
