Recently visited for my birthday with the family and what a letdown...usually The Ship is very good but this was disappointing, overcooked sausage which I ended up taking home for the dog and bits missing from meals, had to keep asking the waitress for stuff that was forgotten and it wasn't even busy when we went in....pull your socks up,...

Had a meal with family. Food was patchy and "bits missing" along with over cooked sausage and lumpy rice. Lots of chips and a really big plate full but I've had a much better previously when I've been there.

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
