Amazing again...

A really lovely evening. Great food and really genuinely friendly service at The Ship Inn. It's such a lovely place to go with children too as they are welcomed.

A lovely meal in an lovely restaurant in a lovely village. A great selection of fish dishes but also some good choices for meat lovers. The duck was perfectly cooked, my smoked haddock was delicious and then lemon sole also got the thumbs up. Great service to match they quality of the food! And reasonably priced

Stopped off here for lunch whilst passing through. Very friendly welcome. Lovely atmosphere and superb food. My husband reckoned IT was the best steak sandwich he has ever had. Will make a point of coming here for dinner one day and staying at the B&B they recommended.

Not sure why this restaurant/pub appears under the Plymouth area. It is not it's postal address. It is nearer Totnes Ivybridge and Yealmpton. It is an OK rather 'nice' place to eat and more expensive than most places. My score is a balance of it not being a Plymouth Restaurant and my general feel for the place. Somewhere you could...

Stopped here by chance when we were in the area and were pleasantly surprised. The meal was lovely and very reasonably priced. I can recommend the mussels and my wife enjoyed the chicken with blue cheese sauce so much that there wasn't any for me to finish off !!

I have visited this pub often over at least 20 years and in all that time it has never, repeat never failed to serve good food at reasonable prices. Maybe it is one of the few places left that has had the same owner in all that time. The menu is varied though not vast, all food is locally sourced... More

We went here by chance to see some friends and they suggested this place. We weren't that excited by it as its about 20 minutes from us and in the middle of nowhere but went anyway. I can honestly say it is really nice here. The food is absolutely delicious. It's a lovely old village pub with a very friendly... More

We booked the ship at the end of our holiday and found it to be an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived to the end, both the food and service, were of the highest standard. We had several waitresses, attend us, all of whom were friendly and helpful, without being over bearing. As for the food, this was certainly... More

I visited The Ship at Ugborough last Wednesday with my parents. What can I say? It was probably one of the best meals I have had in South Devon for a long time. I started with the Cornish Crab followed by the Duck. My father had Seared Scallops followed by the Lamb. It was....excellent with every detail addressed, lovely staff... More
