We visited the Ship Inn with some friends, the food was excellent. We had a meze starter that was exceptional, we had a combination of different main courses all of which were very well presented and tasted amazing. Thanks to the Chef Paul for a superb meal and the waiting staff for their brilliant service. We could not have asked... More

It was the perfect venue for school friends to reunite when they have not seen each other for 30 plus years. There was a glitch on arrival. We had reserved a specific table, which for some reason. However, it was resolved and they were very apologetic. A lovely couple offered to move to accommodate our group. They were given a... More

Only been here about three times but both us and our guests had very nice meals. Service was good as well although it wasn't too busy at the time. I like pub burgers when you can get a good one and these are the best in town.

Came to the ship today as we've heard on the local grapevine that the food is some of the best in Christchurch, well we weren't disappointed, my husband ordered the scallops that were cooked beautifully and came with a Tuscan style panzanella salad which I thought complimented them very well, good start we thought, then the mains, we ordered a...

Seriously impressed by the quality of the food and the first class service. We dropped by on a Saturday evening with no booking and, unsurprisingly there were no free tables in the restaurant area. Without hesitation we were allowed to choose a table from the rest of the pub area (frankly, even nicer!) and were served there. Feasting on a... More
