Very greasy food. Onion rings not paid for due to dripping with fat . Fish swimming in grease, chips anaemic, steak poor quality. Had to ask for onion rings, despite ordering, then came near end of meal with little apology. Service was slow,inadequate and lacklustre. Will not be returning despite being local, many many better eating spots in the area.

By the time we'd cut the fat off it was the size of a small burger! Completely overpriced and when we mentioned it to the waitress she didn't offered any compensation unfortunately my boyfriend is too laid back to refuse to pay I on the other hand didn't realise or I would have refused to pay

We went to the Ship Inn with another couple friends from Barrow, we were on a visit from Australia. The Inn is very welcoming, with good decor and friendly staff. It was midweek fairly quiet and the menu offered a steak dinner with a glass of wine for 12 pounds. We all enjoyed our meals and my fillet steak was... More

Having had a number or good meals, we found standards had slipped on our latest visit. Nothing substantial enough for a complaint but enough to take the shine off. Eating from the 2/3 course week evenings menu: Felt the pate lacked depth of flavour and texture, mushroom soup was, however,delicious, Burger was nice but chips were mediocre, 2* Thai chicken...

We had a lovely meal to celebrate a family birthday. Our starters soup and garlic mushrooms were first class, crusty bread was a delight too. My main dish was beef and dumplings and I must admit the tastiest I have had for ages. My wife had lasagne, she said it was very tasty and seasoned perfectly, my son had Cumberland... More

Ideally situated within a short distance from our holiday accommodation, the Ship Inn offered a warm and welcoming traditional pub experience. Good local ales were available on tap and a reasonable menu kept us satisfied when hunger pangs struck. We'd recommend the lasagne as a hearty feast, though if you get the chance of the chicken and leek pie special... More
