Excellent seaside pub

If you like traditional seaside pubs and pub food I highly recommend this. We had fish and chips, mussels and cullen skink - excellent quality and value. Nice beer too. The staff were lovely and the view on a sunny day was great.

6 of us came for my wife's birthday celebration. Everything was excellent: food; service and beer and wine selection. Great views down the river are an added bonus. Would definitely come back here

We have lived in the area for18 years and have always said we would go to The Ship but never managed it. It was our loss. We had a very nice meal on Saturday evening only blighted by a party of middle aged yuppies squealing like school kids. Everyone else had to shout to be heard and the waitress could... More

We ate in the restaurant a few times during our trip back to the UK, excellent food and 1st class service at a reasonable price, would certainly recommend. Also stayed in the holiday cottage next door to the restaurant owned by the proprietor; again fantastic quality accommodation with beautiful views, can’t wait to come back, check out the restaurant website...

good pub food with standard menu. I have eaten a few times In the downstairs bar however there is an option to eat in the restaurant upstairs where the cost is slightly more. Good, well stocked bar and meals are consistently good at a reasonable price. Always worth a visit

Shocking pun but excellent wee place. All a Ship Inn should be winter sun streaming in, view of the sea and good honest food. We'll be back to Broughty Ferry on the strength of this place alone.
