Sadly we had the audacity to turn up approx 7 minutes early for our reservation. We were chastised for this by a male member of staff despite the fact the couple in front of us were also early for their reservation. They were shown to a table whilst we were asked to wait. No problem with this but to then be asked to take our pick from arouñd 6 empty tables we certainly did not feel welcome. The food was very nice but the frosty welcome left a sour taste in our mouths. I doubt we will return.

I love The Ship Inn. Came this time on an Itison deal and the food was great as always. Chicken and haggis pie is always a firm favourite of mine. Lovely traditional food and great service.
