nice little pub with a good atmosphere and the food was decent, really enjoyed the band playing that night as well. I was served by a young man called James who I think was the manager - he was very polite and friendly. Will definitely come back!

From the warm welcome we received we knew this was the place for us. We got there just as they opened and as the young girl was struggling to carry the aboard out I offered to do it for her and she promised me a extra roast potato.It has to be one of the best roast dinners Ive ever had.... More

This is an old favourite of ours, have enjoyed meals mid week and weekends. Food is well presented and a reasonable price, the service is good. There's a decent choice on the menu and the special boards offer a good selection of sea food, which in my experience has always been well cooked. Drinks are reasonably priced - all in... More

We went to The Ship for a tasty pub dinner as we were feeling too lazy to cook at home. The greeting and service were excellent and the food was way beyond either of our expectations and to be honest, better than many applauded restaurants that we have visited for special occasions! Very reasonably priced, everything was home made and... More

Very pleasant surroundings, with the promise of Live Music later in the evening. The service was very good, with attentive waiters. the food was good, without being spectacular, but then the prices were very fair. The wine list was adequate and the wine we chose was very acceptable. The live music started about 9.30 in the evening and was very... More

There quite a choice of places to eat in Christchurch but The Ship won us over with a fantastic Sunday roast. The service was really friendly, which was a real bonus as we needed some advice on where to visit.

On arrival we were asked for our booking names, name and time for table wasn't in the diary, even though a phone call was made the day before. They politely asked us to wait five minutes and we were seated to a table. The food was very tasty and hot, but slightly over priced for the portion size.

Friday evening - later meal at 8:30 was lots of tables - we missed any rush . I had halibut special yum and partner had steak perfectly cooked and nice with a few spices too. Service excellent as I'd asked for wheat free so got an easy reply. We'll be back. Note to owners I've lived here 2 years and... More

Visited The Ship again and had an excellent Sunday roast. I have tried much of their menu and I remain impressed. Very friendly staff and an attentive manager. The food is much better than their other place-The Manor Arms. The Ship has a really good chef, great décor and a good atmosphere.

I have just opened an account on trip advisor following a visit today to The Ship Inn in Christchurch! I had a truly outstanding experience and felt it only right to show my thanks. Myself and my husband popped in for dinner. The pub was busy as there was a concert on close by but, we were still offered great... More
