For such a small pub on the side of the main road in and out of Dartmouth The Ship In Dock Inn punches well above its weight. Although my first pint - Jail Ale - was a little cloudy it was drinkable and the lady behind the bar immediately took it off sale when another customer mentioned it. The remaining... More

Only used the Pub for dinner...but is everywhere in Devon dog friendly? Having been told they were ok with dogs in the pub, even in the dining area, was still surprised that the barman had a bag of dog treats on the bar and was keen to make friends with the dog first...before finding a nice table and sorting out...

Been to Dartmouth loads of times and never visited before. But found a warm welcome and good beer. next time I'll try the food.It is well worth seeking out ,especially if you only come over on the lower ferry.

From the moment we walked in, Ken was fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. He rang round other hotels getting us fixed in for another night as he was unable to accommodate us. He made us feel at home and nothing was too much trouble

We didn't stay here as a B&B but we ate here twice in a week and on both occasions the food was great as was the service. Make sure you book a table as they can only seat 14 people. Would thoroughly recommend for good pub grub or pizzas.

Spent 4 great days down in Dartmouth at the free music festival. Terrific. Booked in at The Ship in Dock Inn. Ideally situated for walking into town or harbour front. No hills to ascend !( If your staying "up in the hills", the local authority haven't yet got to grips with the concept of providing extra buses for events such... More

Kev and the team are superb. The rooms are clean, spacious and en-suites are huge(in room 3) views over the river and park opposite are pleasant. Breakfast is worth getting out of bed for and the bar is reasonably priced. Location wise it's central to every thing and is easy walking to the shops and further bars. Great few days... More

We stayed at The Ship in Dock Inn for three nights over the Easter bank holiday, we had a lovely stay. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the park, it was clean and spacious with an ensuite bathroom. The landlord and staff were very friendly and accommodating. They served delicious breakfasts too, we tried their full English breakfast... More

Great Bed and Breakfast. No frills. Nice size en suite. Very friendly welcome on arrival .Great staff save for the fact that the Landlord is Welsh but it was great to see his demise when the 6 Nations was on TV in the Pub Bar. Friendly Bar and great atmosphere. Great breakfast. Highly recommended .
