Good hearty grub!

Visited with my husband and parents on a Friday evening. We all enjoyed our meals (pie, burger and steaks) and were well looked after by the waitresses. A nice touch was the homemade chilli bread as we were perusing the menu. The only slight down side was that they'd run out of one cut of... read more

We recently visited York and on the way decided to find somewhere to eat and came across The Ship going in purely because it happened to be the first pub we saw. I can only say it must have been a lucky day as although the outside is not too inviting looking the inside and particularly the people running are... More

Although we live less than 5 miles from The Ship, neither of us could remember visiting before. We were in Strensall checking out one or two houses for sale on behalf of our daughter, and decided on the spur of the moment to take a lunch-break at the Ship. It was a good decision. We were served with drinks immediately... More

Very helpful and friendly staff let down by the poor,overpriced food. Chips either swimming in grease or burnt to a crisp,suggesting some were re-cooked! I had whitebait as a starter.It was fried solid and was in what seemed like brittle, over cooked bread crumbs. I then had the fish pie which consisted of the most miserable portion of filling and...

We were looking for a dog friendly place to eat on the way home from Griffon holiday lodges, and found the Ship Inn. Staff were so friendly and the dogs were allowed anywhere except the actual restaurant . The menu was extensive and the food fantastic. All locally sourced and home made We will def go out of our way... More

My family and I regularly come to 'The Ship' and have always enjoyed our experience there. Fantastic for summer. Great food, a friendly bar and lovely atmosphere. The Quiz is good too.

We have visited The Ship Inn many times over the last few years, mainly afternoons on a weekend during the summer. Walk down, sit outside have a few beers and a bottle of wine and let our little one play outside. This usually ends up staying longer than expected and a bar meal or bar tapas ordered, always is fantastic,... More

We live in the village, and come here at least once a month. The food is always of an extremely high standard, and we have just had an exceptional meal, mine was keryaki glazed salmon, my wife had guinness braised beef........this is a village pub!! extraordinary food. Maybe you shouldn't all come here, it would get too crowded.
