Great pub restaurant, this was my second visit, although a year apart. Went for lunch with friends, used the restaurant on first floor, although you can have pub grub on ground floor. We had steak pie as a main and this was excellent and a very large portion. I had 3 courses and a few drinks, we moved downstairs for... More

Met a group of friends here for a post Christmas lunch. The menu was ok, but half the 'specials' were either off or I suspect, were never even on! I chose the Cullen Skink which is a favourite, but it seemed under seasoned and watery. I also have a personal preference to have larger chunks of potato not tiny dice... More

Came across this delightful bar by chance, had a great meal at very reasonable prices, fresh haddock and chips were delicious, my wife ordered the sumptuous fish pie. When back in the Ferry will again visit this bar.

Enjoyed eating here - pity it was so quiet on a Sunday afternoon. Menu was interesting with a good choice. Prices pretty good and service couldn't be faulted. The great sea view window is a bonus. If you want good food in a unique setting try here - its much better than the standard cheap chain food you'll get elsewhere

If you've never been to the Ship Inn, you should give it a go! The food and the views are equally impressive!
