Lovely food but massive portions

We went without booking on a Friday night early doors, but they didn't mind and sat us straight down in the restaurant as the bar seemed quite busy with early evening drinkers. The waitresses were very pleasant couldn't fault them. The only downside which not everyone will find as a downside was... read more

Marvellous everytime! We have just returned from probably our 6th meal at the ship inn and yet again were not disappointed. From arrival we are always greeted by friendly, attentive staff, regardless of whether we are eating by the welcoming fire or drinking in the lawned beer garden. The bar area has a great mix of drinkers and diners where... More

Have been many times to eat here and the Sunday roast is consistently good. I adore the roast beef, giant Yorkshire puddings and real gravy.

The atmosphere in the Ship was very relaxed and friendly. The menu was class and eventually the food which arrived was fantastic. I have ticked "fine dining" later. It was not terribly expensive. I have to mention the great personalities of Aimee and Caprice, who looked after us and eventually joined us in the bar until shutting time, along with... More

Stayed in the village of Aldborough in July. Visited the Ship Inn several times. Each time there was a very warm welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and very generous portions. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The pub is in a lovely village and it overlooks the beautiful church, very quintessentially English!

We have been to this lovely old, genuine, country village pub so many times now and it always succeeds. The atmosphere is friendly, the staff welcoming, responsive and efficient. The food never fails to delight. The Hake fillet on a bed of linguine with salmon and king prawns was a beautiful dish which I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband always has... More

This was one of the local eating places recommended by the B and B that we stayed at in Kirby Hill. Great choice. We ate here three times, sampling a variety of dishes from the menu. We were very happy with all three visits. Food and service were brilliant. Thank you to all at The Ship Inn

Great country pub, had a fabulous meal. Well worth a visit. 4 of us returned for the second time in a month, steaks and fish dishes all delicious and beautifully presented.

We paid a return visit to one of our favourite places and found that the high standards of the past were still being maintained. The slow cooked roast beef was delicious,soft and pink and the yorkshire puddings with the gravy are a formidable combination. The staff were really on the ball and very pleasant. We heartily recommend this place and... More
