On Sunday the 17th of August five of us decided to go to The Ship in Aldborough for Sunday lunch. My partner and I have been previously and enjoyed the food immensely so decided to take some of our family along with us on this occasion. The setting is typical 'old English' pub, ticking the 'quaint' boxes at every opportunity.... More

We often visit here after walking the dogs beside the River. The food is excellent and well recommended. Good value for money and friendly service.

Heard about the ships great food recently on the grapevine so decided to give it a go. Group of 4 including a 3 year old, very well catered for midweek. We were informed we could eat outside or inside anywhere in the pub. We opted for outside due to the atmosphere and sunny weather. The welcome was great, service perfect... More

Found this pub by accident, we came to Aldborough to visit the roman town. Which was an interesting few hours. We then took a walk around Aldborough village, a lovely little village with ancient buildings, village green with a maypole and set of stocks outside the old courthouse. So a much needed pint in The Ship, a look at the... More

Six of us had Sunday lunch here. Slight mix up when we had been put in for the Friday by mistake but a table was soon found for us and all went well. The food and service were excellent. I had the roast beef dinner and it was one of the best I've tasted. The staff are very friendly and... More

Called in here Friday lunchtime no reservation and we were shown to a reasonable table in the front of the pub, as a note the main restaurant at the rear is quite dark at lunch time and it was a pleasant sunny day. We got drinks and ordered from the menu I must say all the staff are very much... More

I ate here as part of a party, the landlady was welcoming and the service was excellent. The choices on the menu were varied and would suit nearly everybody. The starters were nicely prepared and presented, the maincoursese were scrumptious and generous portions, this is not a patterns on plates establishment, the sweet courses were delightful. The chefs obviously take... More

The Ship is quite simply a lovely old fashioned pub. It serves good quality food, has good beers and has very friendly staff. We were booked in for a meal in the dining room but decided to eat in the bar which was no trouble at all. The service was very good throughout the meal and the bar area was... More

This pub is the most friendly welcoming place you will visit. From the moment you walk in Elaine, Brian and staff make you feel at home. The beers are great and the food is very good honest traditional cuisine. But, Brian also makes a delicious curry, not to mention his famous roast Sunday lunches. We eat there regularly as we...
