3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2014 NEW

First time we have been for a couple of years and since the new ownership took over. Liked the fact we could just turn up without reserving a table and offered a choice of where we would like to sit. The staff all night were very pleasant and polite and always checked up to see if we needed anything else.... More

Have had nice meals in the past but not on this visit. I ordered a Lasagna, it was dry and tasteless, husband had gammon which was chewy. I would not normally leave a negative review but I told the waitress my meal was not nice and there was no acknowledgement of this, I actually thought I was getting unpleasant looks... More

Called in for tea/early evening meal on a sunny Saturday - yesterday - what an absolute disappointment. The food was bland, particularly my husbands. His chicken dish was served like a piece of broiled chicken breast floating on a 'thin' veg soup!!!!!! It was disgusting and bland. We wouldn't have been as shocked if we had been told the truth...

I must say, reading through the previous two or three reviews offends me. I am one of the MANY people that strongly believe that The Ship Inn is a pub that has certainly improved under new management. The only people, and too quote "Off their trolleys" are the previous couple of reviewers. When me and couple of friends visited a... More

Visited The Ship at Roose, Barrow in Furness, on a sweltering hot Wednesday tea time 23rd July 2014. To enjoy the lovely beer garden and ‘sink’ a couple of pints of Lager and enjoy a bite to eat. Two of us duly ordered two pints of Peroni and my wife a dry White Wine. SORRY. No Lager at all or... More

I too was in the Ship Inn, Roose, on the same Sunday as the previous two reviewers. Sunday 27th July 2014. I can also confirm there was not a choice of Sunday roasts. Only Honey Roast Ham, which I don’t care for. The week before only Roast Lamb, no other choices. What is happening?. Visited twice now for Sunday Lunch,... More

Visited The Ship last weekend, nice setting and friendly staff. Hubby had Cumberland sausage and mash and said it was yummy, i would recommend the steak pie in a shortcrust pastry which was absolutely delicious but the accompany chips were not cooked through. Granddaughter had chicken nuggets which she declared were delicious, (although not many of them). The deserts were... More
