This was taken over round about the end of 2013. The charges for meals are getting onto expensive for what you get. Vegetables appear to be rationed and the food often lacks flavour, the fish pie which I had was expensive and tasted bland as if the fish was lacking flavour and the sauce was not rich. Shame as school... More

Nice friendly local pub that serves good home made food at a very reasonable cost, certainly worth a visit with your partner or family.

I have dined at The Ship on many an occasion both prior to it being taken over by new management and afterwards- I was one of the customers relating to the exchange given in the review below and am somewhat baffled by the his interpretation of events and particularly his embellishment of what was actually said- and for the record...

Oh dear oh dear oh dear, where do I start?...... Went on a Monday evening at 7pm. We were greeted by a young, smiley waitress and invited to sit at any table we liked. We were the only two customers in the place. Within a couple of minutes, the number of customers doubled to four when another couple sat down.... More

We went for Sunday lunch/tea this week. Last time we were really disappointed, however this time it was a real improvement. Service was excellent and the Sunday roast deal of 2 courses for £12 each was fabulous value. Starters were of a generous size and roast dinners, one lamb and one beef were really lovely. Veg was hot and beautifully... More

called in at the ship inn on the way home after having an afternoon out in Lancaster, arrived there about 9.30 what a great atmosphere, there was a live female singer who also played the saxophone, this was a perfect ending to a great day as we ended up dancing and singing all night

We visited here on 23/10/14 for a Steak, We had a Sirloin and a fillet both cooked to how we requested, starter was ok and all reasonably. After having a very disappointing couple of Steaks last month at the Stagger Inn at Stainton,and far more expensive, we would certainly recommend the Ship for a Steak.

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
