Excellent standard of food and good value for money. The service could have been more attentive however I understand the restaurant was very busy. The staff were also very friendly, I would definately recommend The Ship Inn to others!

I had a bottle of Coronna Lager which in my opinion was extortionately priced. I know you have to make a profit but that was ridiculous. Other than that, we had a pleasant experience.

I have been going to the Ship Inn for over 20 years, and have introduced many friends and family to this very special pub over the years. Every meal and every visit has been a most enjoyable one. The Ship Inn offers a unique combination of warm welcome; lovely atmosphere; food (delicious, plentiful and excellent value!); and staff's unique brand of obligatory banter :-) And if that wasn't enough, there's a dog-friendly area, and a good gluten-free menu. As the saying goes: 'We'll be back!'.

Very friendly and attentive staff. Special mention to the gentleman who pulled up a chair and sat with us for a short time on a couple of occasions for a chat. The food was delicious and plentiful. I look forward to coming back and would highly recommend.

Food was lovely and the service was great; the drinks are a bit overpriced and the decor could do with a clean up; seats have holes in them and paint is awfully dirty looking but just for the amazing food I’ll definitely come back soon
