As a small group of 3 we thought a quick drink would be nice on our way through town. One of the barmaids, who wasn't even serving us, I believe went by the name of Trish (in her 50s?) made us feel unwelcome by showing a disapproving attitude to our presence on arrival, I wish I could elaborate on this...

We went to the Ship on the Saturday in November. Liked it as soon as we went in. It had 4 good ales that were all properly cared for so a good choice for all. A solo guitar player/singer was performing and covering various songs ska & reggae style very well he then progressed onto various other type covers all... More

Would have scored very good but the menu prices made me down grade score to an average. I enjoyed visit and staff were friendly. Most mains on the menu were nearly £20 which I did think was expensive. The atmosphere was nice and I would probably visit again.

Stella £3.90 pint. I think the most I have ever paid! BUT, chilled branded glass, nice view, friendly staff. I suppose you pays your money, take your choice.

Ideal location, this excellent pub is always very friendly. They now do bar food which is really good value for money, and well presented. The staff are always friendy and the live music at weekends is great.

This is not where you might expect to find very good, freshly cooked Thai food, but we did. This is an traditional pub, on the old harbour front and frequented by fishermen for many decades. Good selection of real ales, occasional live music and good pub atmosphere. Not necessarily a place for families or a romantic dinner, but for some... More
