We have had some good meals here but this last one was not one of them. Starters of soup and nachos were OK. One main was steak and ale pie with chips and veg. The veg was OK but could have done with a bit more and the pie was average. If you like soft chips then you would enjoy... More

We were a party of 10 family members on a Christmas meal. We booked the Xmas menu which was 3 courses for less than £15 each which is very good value. When we arrived our table was ready and fantastically decorated (very impressed). Service was spot on. Two elderly members of our party couldn't make it due to illness but... More

This was our second visit in 3 weeks - our daughters choice as it was her 14th birthday! There is plenty of room and a lovely atmosphere. Good choice of food on the menu. Very helpful and friendly staff. All 5 of us enjoyed our main courses but not enough room for desserts - however a lovely surprise birthday dessert... More

The staff were friendly but the quality of the food was poor. Kids menu was typical with little imagination. Ordered a medium steak, however it was tough and dry as if it had been cooked from frozen. Not the juicy steak the menu boasted from a local farm shop. Pretty average food in my opinion and over priced.

We just happened to be passing by and stopped for lunch and ended up very pleased that we did. The service was terrific (really child friendly), the food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant itself was tastefully decorated. We ordered the Sunday Roast (which I would absolutely recommend), a chicken parmesan and a children's roast (huge portion). We are already... More

Christmas eve for 8 was really enjoyable. A nice festive atmosphere and friendly welcoming staff. The menu had a really good selection and all eight of us thoroughly enjoyed our various meals. My chicken and king prawn sizzler followed by sticky toffey pudding was excellent. Come on you foodies get booking

I took my Mother & Daughter to The Ship Inn for Sunday lunch to celebrate my Mothers birthday. It has been a while since I had visited The Ship Inn & I did notice how tastefully it has been updated! We were greeted at the door, shown to our table where we ordered drinks then shortly after that our Sunday... More
