Sunday lunch stop

Pleasant to sit in the courtyard for a very nice Sunday roast, pleasant waiting staff, choice of different meat and small or large plates.

Called in Sunday at approx 9:50pm. Was told by bar maid she had just turned everything off, so we could not have a drink there. Turning away custom when you will soon have a Wetherspoons taking the custom is a bit foolish, but the pub will probably make a nice convenience store or flats when it closes.

Came in here for a drink before going down the road for dinner, particularly to watch the sports they were showing. I will never set foot in this pub again. The woman behind the bar was so rude it felt like I (a paying customer) was a massive inconvenience for her, interrupting her chat at the end of the bar.... More

It had a TV blaring but a warm smile from the bar maid. No atmosphere and empty on a Friday lunchtime concerned me. Lunch choices were bread or pie related, with chips. Simply that was it, so not for us this time! Didn't inspire or delight enough to stay, prices seemed fair but I'd suggest more of a drinking establishment... More

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... 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
