Handy for Regent Centre

Went there for a quick meal before going over to the Regent Centre, and it worked out well as did not have to wait long for the food. Able to eat in the garden as lovely weather (fortunately not many smokers out there!). Food might seem a bit pricey, but all our party were pleased with what we... read more

Sunny day yesterday so decided to visit the Ship for lunch in the garden, beer great, service good too, but food completely underwhelming and expensive for what you get. The three of us ordered fish finger baguette, three or four cheap fish fingers with a bit of salad and dressing on a toasted half baguette, Croque Monsieur, well it was... More

Very disappointing visit recently, we are locals to Christchurch and have been many times over the past 6 years but sadly found the service to be so appalling on this occasion we are unlikely to return. Visited for drinks to end a lovely meal out with friends at 1015pm to be met with a very unfriendly young man with slicked-back... More

Popped my head in whilst walking by and thought that looks a cosy little pub. Nice friendly pub with a variety of food and drinks with welcoming bar staff. a relaxing couple of hours was spent drinking with family. Cheers to the next time.

Have visited this pub a few times for drinks and have always found it to be friendly and welcoming and popular with locals. There is also a pleasant garden and it is dog friendly in the bar and garden. Recently we decided to have a pre Regent Theatre meal which worked out very well as the food and service were... More

We finally made it back to The Ship and thoroughly enjoyed it again the second time round! Dining Al fresco on a stunning Spring day, it was a seafood and ice cold cider kind of a occasion. We had a calamari and whitebait starter with an eye wateringly delicious aioli, the finest bowl of moules that any of us could... More
