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

This is a great pub in a very small village recommended by the Hillhead Farm B&B (wonderful place to stay). The pub was walking distance and we ate there on the evening of England's first world cup game. Being from the US but having spent the past 10 months in England, we've experienced enough Pub food to know that many... More

Been here before and it was exceptional. A good but not overcrowded menu with a price range to suit most. Comfortable seating and a nicely decorated area for eating. Main course portions are very good though not over the top and the dish of vegetable with most main courses is the best. Hope they continue with this as vegetables are... More

Home for a week from Scotland, had booked a table for 14 to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary (which turned out to be 15), we had a fabulous evening. The food was great, the service was fantastic! Thanks to Paul and the girls who run the restaurant so well and make all customers feel comfortable and at ease. We ate... More

We didn't get as far as a drink or the food, so I can't comment on that. We were celebrating my 17 year old son passing out from HMS Raleigh. We were shown to our table having told the server we were having a meal. She took our drinks order which included beer for my son, and that's where the... More
