Very good selection of light meals, soups, sandwiches etc. All 5 meals were well presented and tasty. From chilli prawns, to baguettes, to Cheshire soup - all were very good. Excellent service from just one young lady who capably seemed to manage the bar and the serving of the meals. Timely and attentive service.

We have had our Group Christmas lunch here before and always been delighted, this time however the food took over an hour to appear...cant complain about the actual meal. Limited draught beer selection. Has the ownership changed?

We've had two lovely meals here in the last couple of months - hot homemade soups, hearty sandwiches, and tasty fresh fish and proper chips, all very comforting when you are hungry from walking on the hills - and this has restored our faith in the Ship Inn since July 2013 when we were treated terribly for asking if a...

We had a Christmas Meal with a bunch of friends. It was very well made, the ambience was very good, and we were made very welcome. Sure to come again when in the area!

My friends and I were stopping in nearby Leek for the weekend and we decided to take a short trip out of town for lunch. After reading reviews we decided to go for the Ship Inn and were not disappointed. It's a lovely, cosy old pub. We sat by the fire near the entrance in a little nook - my... More

Fully agree with the last review. The Ship Inn is an excellent little pub in a beautiful village. Nikki and Gemma are doing a great job in rejuvenating the place and getting it back on the map for locals and visitors alike. Shame it doesn't sell Wincle beer but then again you can't have everything!

What a wonderful place to eat and drink, the pub is always full of friendly locals and since Nikki and Gemma took over they have certainly done their best to welcome back old and new customers, going out of their way to make sure your visit is a pleasurable one. If you have been in the past, give it another... More

How we found this beautiful village and pub I am not really sure. We were staying in Buxton and decided to go out for the day, and just took a turning that looked like it would take us out around the country lanes and small villages. The countryside around Wincle is stunning and as we went through the village we... More

My partner and I were staying with friends in the village and frequented The Ship for both dinner and Sunday lunch over the weekend. The pub itself is a little gem.....situated in the quaint centre of Wincle it really is the life and soul of the village. The atmosphere was buzzing on both visits - the staff really add to... More

This used to be one of our favourite watering holes but now its just ordinary. It still has a wonderful position in the midst of beautiful countryside and good walks, there was still a fire in the bar but it's no longer special. Since its recent change of hands it has lost the welcoming ambience it used to have. It's... More
