Peter the owner is a real character, always friendly but don't vex him ha ha he's very proud of their... More

Found this place by chance, a bit further out from my business destination than I usually prefer to stay but I,m glad I found it. A limited number of rooms, but each one has a parking space outside it. Lovely setting with a sea view. The pub has an excellent range of real ales. The food was first class and... More

We were introduced to this gem of a pub very recently by friends, our first meal was the midweek early bird special and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and would recommend the sausage and mash starter (yes a starter), venison and the apple toffee betty. The board changes all the time so there is always something a little...

We arrived at just after 9pm and we were greeted warmly by the owner and he offered to make us some food from the bar menu even though they had stopped serving which was much appreciated. The bar and food prices were very reasonable. The owner showed us to our room and went through how everything worked which was a... More

Rooms are top notch and of a high standard both in decor and cleanliness. Owners and staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Warm friendly atmosphere in the pub. Bit disappointed that we ordered fish, chips and mushy peas but were told no mushy peas available when meal arrived. Lovely breakfast though. Would return

We got what we expected and more.... traditional English village pub and traditional décor ,,,, we were worried about how... More

We have enjoyed many meals at the ship. We cannot fault the high standard of service and consistent food quality. Food is freshly prepared and always cooked to a high standard Hospitality is fantastic the atmosphere is warm, friendly and very welcoming. We are well travelled and have dined in many restaurants and none come close, deb, phil

Decided last minute to have a weekend away with my husband as we were both off work. It was a bank holiday and this proved to be difficult as everywhere seemed to be booked up. We eventually came across the Ship Inn, we decided to book the larger room namely Crows Nest Cottage and glad we did. It is a... More

Having booked (and paid for) a room one month in advance I was astounded and disgusted on arrival to be told very aggressively by Sheila (the owner) that I had no room booked. This was despite my showing her the email confirmation of booking and informing her that the money had indeed left my account one month prior. As I... More
