We had a meal on the first evening and the quality and choice of food was very good. The scallop and pig cheek start was particularly memorable. The service throughout the stay was excellent....

What makes this place is the really friendly staff , the view and of course the food. The sharing platters are first class, the burgers huge and the fish cooked to perfection. With a huge variety of real ales and some great wines this place gets top marks for me. One tip is the dogs are only allowed outside and... More

They had reserved us a rather cramped table. We managed to squeeze in . The chairs we found were rather hard.... More

I was greeted by the front of house, Hannah I think her name was she was very nice and offered to help me with my bags. The first room I was allocated was noisy, above the pub and a door kept slamming so with no fuss Hannah changed my room. It was a fabulous room, all of the bedrooms were... More

We stayed at The Ship on New Years Eve and again on February 13th. The room we had at New Year was OK as we were hardly in it. If we had been staying longer I would have found it claustrophobic as it was small for two people. When we went back in February I rang in advance and asked... More

Revisited The Ship with a different group of friends for one night Bed Breakfast and evening meal. As on the previous occasion,the staff were both friendly and very efficient. The room and bathroom both clean,with sufficient space for our clothes. I understand for an increase in the tariff you can have a room with a sea view. This time we... More

My family have now dined here twice as we are locals and on both occasions the change from my cash payment has been kept, they just hope that you get up and leave ,thereby allowing them to keep your change. The restaurant manager needs to induct staff to be professional with customers and customers will tip you on their attentiveness... More
