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... read more

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

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
