Been here about five times in the past year and each visit gets better. The food is fantastic, the service is first class and the prices are very reasonable. Just do it, you won't be disappointed.

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.

The menu had a good selection of mainly Scottish dishes. No had the Cullen Skink which was very tasty. Served in a large bowl, with good amount of potatoes and smoked fish and a nice... More

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.
