My friends and I visited the pub on Friday. the food was absolutely gorgeous! I hope you're hungry ...........the portions are massive. The food was reasonably priced. The only criticism is the topsy turvy service. You go to the bar order your drink and then staff seat you. I think seating then serving is better customer service. I'd recommend the... More

If all you'd like is a bowl of chips then go here, if you'd like a nice meal with good service as a bit of a treat then go else where. Ignored by both waiters while they chatted to friends, had to go up to the bar to order. Ham an eggs, ham was pale and warm very poor compared... More

Didn't book a table, turned up around 7.30-8pm very busy. We were given a table at the end of the bar. Food order taken not a long wait, size of portion of chips disappointing but overall food quality spot on, will try again at a later date.

Been here several times,. Don't eat all day before because the portion sizes are so big, a lot goes to waste. It does take quite a long time to come out too, this is definitely something that could be improved on. I was there recently for a friends birthday, and the food was bang on, and the service was good... More

I have never had such a bad experience from returning what can only be described as a horrible glass of wine! We did however have a fantastic meal! We were offered no deserts, no coffee's, were not asked if we enjoyed the meal so in the end we had to get up and go to the bar to pay where... More

We were also members of the party of 16 who turned up on Saturday night after booking and pre-ordering our food to leave 35mins later having all not been seated. We booked a week in advance and were told that a menu would be e:mailed as the Ship wanted us to pre-order. The menu did not arrive. 2 days before... More

This place has gone down the drain. Food was terrible. The ham is cold, not stated on the menu, looks like it's come from a bad supermarket. Greasy and laiden with fat. Chicken dry and small. Service unfriendly and terrible even after we said we weren't happy to be given something else to what was stated on the menu. Will... More
