Have just returned from a 2 night stay, dinner bed and breakfast. We really could not fault anything, the room, food and staff were all excellent. we stayed during the week so it was quiet and took advantage of the january offer that was on. A great pub in a lovely part of england which we will be visiting again,... More

Greeted with a smile and our dog was met with a pat and biscuit. We had great beer and super lunch, although not busy it was warm and cosy, with a blazing fire and friendly staff. At the bar it was true to a real pub and you could eat more formally if you wanted. Good car parking and outside... More

The Ship used to be dreadful but forget the miserable landlord and disgusting beer of yesterday it is now quite simply superb. We have visited several times now and the friendliness, food and great choice of drinks are such that we will continue going back when we can. Well done Kiwi, I hope you make lots of money because you... More

Although living close by we had never visited The Ship until a couple of weeks ago. We decided on Sunday lunch and to try somewhere different. The car park was busy and the bar was buzzing but not over crowded, The barman was in the middle of a huge drinks order so we waited a while to be served but... More

We have had dinner in The Ship 6 or 7 times over the last year - sometimes with friends and sometimes just the two of us. Overall, we think it is very good and certainly one of the best places along the North Norfolk coast. The food is well cooked and there is always an interesting choice of starters and... More

Visited on Sunday with a group of friends for Sunday lunch after a decent 6 mile or so walk around Brancaster. When making the reservation I asked permission to park in the car park so we could do our walk which was cheerily given, so we arrived about 11ish, pulled on our walking boots and went off to build up...

Having visited The Ship Hotel at Brancaster several times now - and the first and last visits being almost a year apart - I've just read a couple of recent reviews on this site, and I have to completely concur with the comments about the service - and in particular about the bottleneck at the bar. My first visit was... More

We visited the ship several times during our New Year holiday to Brancaster, The New Years evening meal was splendid, champagne reception with a five course supper, the food was really good, the staff were excellent, we had found them to be helpful and friendly on other visits but they excelled themselves on New Years Eve, nothing was too much...

The food at this restaurant was some of the best i have had for a long time. The protions were generous and all was well cooked and presented. The home-made bread was a lovely touch too. The choice of drinks was also excellent. Some great Kiwi beers improved the line-up of choices on other local hostelries. Sadly, the service was... More
