We had a fairly average lunch here. my burger (an unusual choice for me) was perfectly edible but bland and unexciting. Fish and chips looked delicious, but whilst the chips were good, the fish was overcooked. Everything was under seasoned. Service was on the slow side, but we were enjoying the sunshine in the garden, and a bit disorganised. Some... More

Very Good all round food for most palettes - informal or slightly more formal bistro style. Comfortable, friendly attentive staff and good range of drink available too - great wine list. We had both the flinty dry Kent Chapel Down white and the white Rioja - both great

Booked last-minute for a night stop-over and was deeply impressed by the pleasant surroundings, welcome from the staff and evening meal, which was of very high quality. Superb location right next to lane to Brancaster Beach (superb) and room extremely comfortable with nice additions (selection of books). Made a rushed stop feel like a long weekend.

Atmosphere and staff ok. Food poor. Chips not cooked through, pork belly very fatty, calves liver grainy and all difficult to eat out of a soup bowls!

Picked up fish and chips on way home from beach. Lovely decor, friendly staff. Service was a bit slower than the ten to fifteen minutes we'd been told it would be. Wouldn't have minded the wait too much if the awful chips hadn't been so obviously undercooked. Still a bit hard in the middle. If we hadn't been in a... More

We really like the Ship at Brancaster. The food is really fresh and the Lemon Sole was to die for (as was the white and dark chocolate torte)! Fish and chips not bad either!!

We booked a family birthday meal here having had a wonderful meal here this time last year. We were put in a private room that was already occupied by a loud party of 14. This seemed greedy on management's part as it was nearly impossible to hear each other and meant we were often forgotten about by the waiters. The... More
