The smallest portions I have ever had at the ship. The chicken in pastry was very small with a very thick sauce, and the big steak pie (pastry was not cooked) with not very much meat inside. Not been in a few months, and quite disappointed.

Had an itison voucher, was great value for money, but some of the things that were on the menu last time we went with an itison voucher were on at a £2 supplement this time. Would still go back and recommend

By the time we got dinner they had no soup left and all the other starters were sea food, mushrooms or deep fried Brie which we opted for as we don’t eat mushrooms or sea food. When the starters were brought to us the waitress was unsure whether it was actually our order we had to tell her yes it is but she still seemed confused. Was a bit disappointed as I thought maybe because we informed the waitress we don’t like any of the starters apart from the soup that they would maybe have let us swap for a sweet. Don’t think we will return

Drinks order taken and items brought reasonably quickly. Service on the whole was good except one girl. She was wearing quite a bit of make up (only way to describe her as I can’t remember her name) who was very forgetful. Had to chase up the desserts and the bill. When asked for the desserts she commented “I forgot”. After waiting 25 minutes for the bill, I gave up waiting and went to the bar to ask for it myself.

We love it here. Staff are lovely and food is delicious! Had a good laugh with the owner yesterday, despite the fact he supports the wrong team!! Looking forward to our next visit.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with a friend - having a catch up. Food was delicious, great atmosphere, service was just right and we didn’t feel hurried or that we were waiting too long for the next course. Would certainly say to others to try it for themselves. I will definitely be back! Thank you to all at the Ship!

Great lunch. Very welcoming. Would like to have had the same waiting staff member tend to us, but that's just a personal preference.
