We stopped in after a walk in the hills for lunch. Our welcome was warm and friendly, the menu was varied, and the food absolutely delicious! Service was really fast too, but food was clearly freshly cooked to order. Wherever possible the food was locally sourced, with suppliers listed on the menu. Highly recommended - we'll certainly be going back... More

Stppped here after nice walk and had beautiful pastrami, gherkin and rocket panini with lovely chips and salad. Friendly service and were told that they cure their own pastrami which takes a week and you can tell the difference from dried shop bought. Nice to sit in the garden in the sunshine. It had been a while since we had... More

En route in our long circular walk, we stopped here for a latish lunch. We both had a sandwich, which came with the usual sides plus the most amazing chips we've had in a long time. Accompanied by good friendly service and nobody complained about the state of our boots! Fuelled us up for the rest of our walk. Would... More

We ate at The Ship Inn twice whilst having a brew day at the local Wincle Brewery and the food was excellent on both occasions. Hearty and locally sourced county Faye that perfectly suits it's rural surroundings and served by very warm, friendly and welcoming staff. A lovely country pub and well worth a visit.

I live locally to the Ship Inn and *had* avoided it of late as it had changed hands a couple of times, and the food had gone downhill for a period as had service. I went there a couple of days ago with a friend and we were delighted to see that it has upped its game again thanks to... More

A wonderful pub in Wincle with excellent food and fine ales. The friendly staff and warm welcome makes a visit well worthwhile. The menu is varied and fresh and suits all palettes. Whether a visit post walk or a destination visit, don't miss the boat!!

We have not visited the pub since August 2014. It has changed hands but has not lost any of its good service and quality food. The steaks were fabulous and the fish equally good. The menu has changed but still has good choices and value. The new team definitely need support to ensure they continue to offer excellent service and... More
