Booked Sunday lunch here for five as it was my birthday. We waited 75 mins for the meal to be served, not only poor service but the meal was abominable.I complained and was given a discount the excuse was "new staff". Hence will not be visiting again.

I stayed at the Old Ship for several weeks up until Christmas and I really enjoyed my time there. I spend a lot of time away from home with my job and always try to find somewhere with some atmosphere and I certainly found some here. The landlord and landlady Kerry & Maggie are so welcoming and make you feel... More

The Old Ship Inn has improved very much from a few years ago. I went with a friend for lunch recently and had a lovely tasty meal at a very good price. I like the fact that we had a white tablecloth which makes the place look more professional. I will certainly be going back again soon, hopefully for an... More

This was an excellent meal. Great choice, beautifully and imaginatively cooked, and outstanding value at £14.95 per person for three courses e.g. The breaded scampi and chips had more scampi than chips (a rarity), the butter nut and thyme soup was homemade and served piping hot. The service was very obliging, We had a direct view into the kitchen from... More

What a lovely friendly pub. Well cooked food at an excellent price. My salmon was a generous portion with nice sauce, fresh asparagus lots of freshly cooked vegetables. My liqueur coffee was perfect - with the bonus of a bahlsen choccy biccy!

Organising a group booking for 15 for a family lunch when you don't know the area is always daunting and unfortunately the website doesn't do the pub justice. But the recent reviews were good so I rang and The Old Ship posted me a Christmas menu ( email would have been good) with no problem, which I circulated to the... More

We stayed here from September 2014 through to December 2014. I can honestly say that the food served in the restaurant is on par with the very best in British Pubs throughout the land.. The Hospitality of both Maggie and Kerry the Landlord and lady is without question, fantastic making it not only a hotel but a home as well.... More

A family lunch was really enjoyed by all we sat outside on the front as it is a lovely quiet village. I often bring our wi lunch club as it is a local clear favourite excellent service and value for money really nice home cooked food.

Not our first visit but on previous occasions we had just had a drink when we were going to gigs across the road---liked it then busy with the normal music crowd . So decided that a drink out side on a nice sunny day would fit the bill --when we arrived it was a different animal with people eating and... More
