Service charge for drinks only is a joke, the fact that it appeared to not be optional made it worse. Between our party of 7 we spent over 700 on drinks meaning over 70 service was paid when we were on a table circa 2 metres away from the bar itself. Otherwise every other element of the pub was very good.

There shouldn’t be a service charge on every order as there isn’t an option to collect your drink at the bar.

Hi, I don’t often post a revue on tripadvisor, but I was moved to after our experience this Sunday. I booked a lunch for my Daughter and family to celebrate her 45th birthday. I booked on the strength of your website menu and was expecting an experience to remember. Both families travelled over 35 miles to attend. When we arrived to be shown a menu with only 4 choices of food ( pizzas) I was extremely disappointed, as we had travelled the distance but I wasn’t prepared to wander around Marlow searching for another restaurant, I decided we would eat at the Ship. The pizzas were tasteless, with scant filling and a very poor choice, and no choice of dessert for the children.... not even Pre packed ice cream!At no time we’re we told that there was a restricted menu prior to our visit. Extremely disappointing.

Don't appreciate having to pay a 10% service charge on EVERY round of drinks to support my local pub. To rub salt into the wound, the bar staff even forgot our order so after 15 mins had to go to the bar to chase up our drinks!! feel it's outrageous in the circumstances as no other Marlow pubs are charging it. Won't be returning until this is removed.

A little expensive. Glass of prosecco costs 81p cheaper than a Bottle. Also charge service charge which is crap. Small plain pizza is £11.

Some pubs and restaurants are adapting to the situation well and adhering to the guidelines has blended in. We arrived and there was no seating inside. It had been raining and despite there being empty tables under the gazebo we were made to sit out. The table was wiped over to remove the rain but everything was damp and out clothes got wet. We asked for the patio heater to be put on but it did work. It felt like we were at a student union bar and with no music there was no atmosphere and the whole experience was, well quite frankly awful. The staff were somber. They appeared brow beaten and clearly were disinterested. In normal times we were frequent visitors to the Ship and have spent a lot of money there. Pubs and restaurants must do all they can to keep guests interested and wanting to venture out and spend cash. We made the decision that we may as well stay at home. Some of my friends went to the bar to ask for the bill and the staff jumped back and said they should get away because of the virus. We had been temp checked on the way in and none of the staff are wearing masks. This was an experience we won’t be repeating again.

Service slow and belligerent. Please don’t ask us to pay a service charge when we don’t have any other option. We may return when normality returns.

The only issue was I had booked a table for 3pm and said we would order food and drink and stay for a couple of hours, nothing was said to me that food stopped serving at 3pm so when I arrived I was disappointed to find that the food was not being served.

Charging service charge on every individual order of every individual drink is pushing it a bit

The app joining instructions were clumsy and not straightforward...had to abandon attempts to use it and get one of your members of staff to use the iPad. Not sure your use of 12.5% surcharge is a good move... Your staff aren't really doing anything different to what they were doing pre lockdown. I realise that you have lost profit you need to make up, are working on reduced numbers and are incurring extra costs but I would be happier if you just put your prices up rather than suggesting that the customers are being charged for a service they didn't get befor...all of the supermarkets are doing it!!

Felt completely safe and at ease with the new C-19 procedures in place to keep patrons as safe as can be in a pub environment. Drinks ordering was simple and table service quick and efficient. Looking forward to any more visits.

Our first visit to the Ship on a trip to Marlow and it was fantastic. First day on reopening after lockdown and the staff were brilliant, service excellent (via an app) and the bbq hit the spot. We don't normally write reviews but such a great experience and it's lovely to see pubs like this back open. Thanks and will be back!
