Stayed for the first time in July and was pleasantly surprised, a bit out of the way for my usual business trip but was worth it. Very friendly staff, nice clean rooms, good food and local beer. They also serve a very good English breakfast. I will be back!

I booked this hotel through Hotels.com. When I arrived at 5pm I was greeted by a sign on the door that said they were closed on Mondays!!! This was obviously very frustrating but I had no alternative but to book an alternative hotel in Hartlepool. When I was settled in my alternative hotel I got a call from Sheila who... More

The Ship is a pub in a small village a short distance from the coast. I booked at short notice and even though they were busy they made sure I had a room for the night. chose an evening when the restaurant was fully booked for a REME reunion. We were still served promptly with a tremendous meal. The menu... More

Visited The Ship last night for a meal and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the food was excellent of the highest quality and the service could not have been better. The choice was amazing for all courses and perfectly presented, a five star hotel couldn't have done better. The staff were friendly and very welcoming. At the back of the inn... 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 went tonight for the first time after hearing several good reviews but also cries of "oooh a bit pricey" a look on this website showed a mixture of good and bad reviews so we were unsure what to expect. We got what we expected and more.... traditional English village pub and traditional décor ,,,, we were worried about how... More
