What a fabulous Sunday Roast

My partner and I have now eaten twice at the Ship Inn on a Sunday (and going again Mothers Day if we can get a booking)... The roast dinners are as good as you could make yourself (and that is if you are a really good cook). My partner had lamb and I had chicken with 5 different vegetables and... read more

Stopped into Emsworth and found this busy pub. Wanted a table for 2 people to eat. Just as I clambered onto the stool the landlady offered us a table. I said she just wanted to see me struggle getting on the stool as I'm only short and so is she! 😬 We ordered 2 roast pork dinners, and they were... More

What a rude bunch of people who work behind the bar. Made me feel like I was an inconvenience on a quiet night. No customer service. Just interested in speaking amongst themselves

Decided to go in here after a curry, ordered 3 glasses of wine, 1 Rioja and 2 Sauvignon Blanc. I had to ask the lady toting up the bottles for some service, I got a huff and puff like I was in convenience. The wine matched the service dreadful and acidic, literally all thre of us couldn't drink it so... More

Never been to Emsworth before, a pretty town, we wanted lunch, & we chose the Ship Inn because it seemed to match our impression of the town! Lovely interior, lovely staff, lovely loos (very important to us ladies*!*). Delicious-sounding menu, my husband really enjoyed his vegetable curry while I fancied a gammon steak. This was to be served with 'fries',topped... More

I have eaten here many times and although it is a bit pricey for what it offers, it is in a lovely setting right by the waterside. It is so relaxed and chilled it's very easy to sit and eat and drink and pass away a few hours here. It is always jam packed which reflects on how popular it... More

Came into the village for a day out with family and had lunch in the Ship. I was appalled by the service and the mannerism of the staff. The food took more than half an hour to come out, even then the vegetables were overcooked and looked like mush and the meat was dry, not worth the money we paid.
