I ate here with a group of family and friends. There was a good choice of food including 4 vegetarian options all of which looked nice. Within our group we had 2 of them and they were very nice. All meals were enjoyed and the vegetables in particular were cooked perfectly. There was a good range of deserts which were... More

We went here and found a warm fire burning and a friendly welcome from the publican and his wife. They were also happy for us to take the dog along too. It felt very cosy. I had the liver and my husband the Cumberland sausages. Both were served with mash and a selection of veg, which were not over-cooked. Was... More

We visited the ship inn whilst staying at the nearby caravan site. We walked to it at 6pm on a Sunday. We were lucky to get the last 2 roast dinners. The service was excellent, the food was lovely and the price was very reasonable. They are dog friendly too. We loved it so much we returned 2 nights later.

You cannot fault the food or service here but found it strange that on tuesday & Wednesday they do not do starters except for soup of the day, which was the same as we had on Sunday! So maybe it should be soup of everyday. I saw that some of the main courses came with garlic bread so asked if... More

Good pub, good food, good value. Lovely hosts. We also spent two nights here (as we have done on three occasions before) and, although the rooms are not on suite and the bath/shower rooms could do with a bit of an update, the beds are comfy and the breakfast very good. Ideal for an extra night or two at the... More

Whilst touring the lake district we stopped a couple of times at this pub for lunch. Very nice meals and generous portions, I can recommend the pies. Everybody working there was super friendly and helpful and the prices were fair.

Walked to the ship inn after a late arrival at the cottage, armed with a 3 year old. The food was excellent pub grub, and plentiful. The welcome was really warm and friendly. The landlord went the extra mile for us and our son to ensure we had a relaxed meal and were welcome. What a fine welcome to coniston.... More

I ate here with 4 friends after a day out on the hill so were were really hungry. The service was pretty good and we didn't have to wait too long for our food which was served more or less all at once so no one felt they had to wait. The food was great and we had fairly generous... More

Billed as good pub food. Limited choice soup, crab salad or a roast it was empty and there was a hour wait. Wouldnt bother.
