Having a rare night out me and hubby went to the Ship Inn. We received a warm welcome both in the bar and restaurant. The waitress and landlady were both friendly and welcoming I explained I had special dietary needs being both wheat and dairy free . I am usually limited to what I can order from most menus.

We called in recently for Sunday lunch for 4 of us and what a surprise! It's nice to see a real pub with great atmosphere and wonderful food. It was very busy but the staff greeted us pleasantly and managed to find us a table whilst we had a drink in the bar area with a good choice of house... More

Lived up to its reputation - delicious food and a lovely atmosphere with very well trained staff. We weren't rushed by the staff even though it was Sunday lunchtime. Can't believe another reviewer called for background music - it's so nice to find a pub without machines, TV's and muzak! Dog-friendly too.

Called in for the first time recently after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed, chose dishes from the good value £7.50 early doors choices. We observed other diners having fish and chips and must say it looked like proper delicious fare, we will try next time. Only downside is there did not seem much atmosphere and felt a little...

We came for lunch on Sunday 5th July to meet up with relatives we don't see often. All 9 of us were throughly impressed with the service. The waitresses and bar staff were extreemly helpful and knew what they were doing! We all had roast beef and Yorkshire puddings and the ship really lived upto our expectations! The beef was... More

The usually excellent fish pie was watery, the black pudding lacking in texture and the duck tasteless. Ambience remains pleasant and service sort of satisfactory except annoyingly repeated use of "No problem... More
