Lovely family meal in cosy restaurant with great view overlooking the Tay. Friendly, efficient service and good standard of food with excellent choice from menu and specials. Particularly enjoyed the Fishermans Pot. The Chocolate slab was also very much appreciated. Highly recommended.

Another great night at the Ship Inn. The menu is small but varied, although it favours seafood lovers. Well priced and portions are generous. Highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant with a party of 10. Service was good and there was a great choice to pick from including a childrens menu. Portions were great and I struggled to finish my dinner. Not a very big restaurant so maybe worth booking a table. Great views over the Tay.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch in the Ship upstairs in the Restaurant, overlooking the River Tay. There was a good well balanced selection on offer, however we all felt since the fish is freshly sourced daily it would have been a mistake not to choose one of the many fish dishes on the menu. My salmon was lovely accompanied by... More
