We stumbled upon the Ship by accident and are so glad we found it! All the staff were very welcoming but our waitress Clare was absolutely brilliant, friendly and so helpful with all of our questions and requests about the menu which were all taken care quickly and with no fuss. The food was beautiful, and so well cooked, compliments... More

It was ok. The rooms are not in best of health but the bathroom has been updated. My bedroom was very warm at night but in fairness they had left a fan in room which helped to keep at reasonable temperature. The door rattled all night and in need of attention. The bar and eating areas are attractive and although... More

Been many times to the Ship but our last 2 visits have been worth writing another review. Went as a group of 6 on Saturday night and enjoyed the food ( short rib and the mussels in particular) and watched the amazing storm over the Dee. Dil the Chef should be proud of his food and all the staff are... More

First things first, the food here is beautiful. The menu has a good range of choices and we haven't had a bad meal yet. We went for a business dinner over the weekend and were so impressed we have visited again this week with family as we couldn't stop talking about it. The duck breast and the short rib of... More

Had a family lunch there the other day, in a beautiful spot for a sunny lunch outside, very good selection of drinks, the food very good with a wide variety on the menu. Had one one small problem with one of the meals, but this was dealt with so perfectly, will be back

Stayed here for 1 night. Our room was clean and well maintained. The view from our room was beautiful and the staff were friendly and helpful. Only slight problem was the small bed for 2 tall people but don't think a bigger bed could fit in the room. Breakfast was lovely and a nice selection of hot dishes as an... More

Breakfast was the highlight of the stay as we didn't eat here at other times. Plenty of choice,good quality and freshly cooked. we did have a drink in the evening and there were plenty... More

Food here was, overall, disappointing. My moules marinaire were ok but needed more white wine and garlic as the cream left behind was quite thick. My traditional ploughmans was very poor. The mature farmhouse cheddar wasn't mature and certainly wasn't farmhouse, the pork and apple pie was stale, the piccalili was virtually tasteless, the silver skin onions were soft -... More

We only stayed for a one night break - fantastic quality and great value, the food was superb and a good choice of real cask ales. We took a package of bed and breakfast with the choice of either starter - main - or desert ( 2 dishes) for two people - great portion sizes - the full English breakfast... More

This was our second stay here and the hotel didn't disappoint. The rooms are charming and we were lucky to have unspoilt views across the Dee Estuary. We enjoyed a drink in the well stocked bar, and ate in the restaurant, and the food was of a high standard, with plenty of choice. The restaurant was busy so I expect... More
