Don't mind waiting for service - but it felt like we were in the way rather than being welcomed. Found the service and the food selection at the Anchor around the corner much better and have gone there since.

Can't fault the variety and quality of food and beer on offer at the Ship. I just wish that the staff (with the exception of the young waitress) would cheer up a bit! It would never stop me from returning, but I'm sure that the sullenly service must put off others.

Took friends visiting the area for an evening meal, very busy when we arrived, had already booked a table. Good range of food with fish on the specials board. Food was very good, great value and served by friendly staff. We all enjoyed what we eat. Will certainly visit again. Excellent beer, 5 on handpumps, and dog friendly.

Just finished a lovely meal at the Ship Inn. Staff very knowledgeable about the ingredients, essential for my husband whose gluten intolerant. His mixed bean goulash was small in comparison to my Sunday roast, but very tasty. The prices are comparable to most nice pubs. Would have given 5 stars, except for the limited choice of vegan/vegetarian meals. Would recommend... More
