A great country pub with good atmosphere.you are always made to feel welcome by Greg and Alli. The food is excellent and belongs to a top class restaurant. This should come as no surprise when you learn that Greg is an award winning Chef. Don't do what I did and followed my Sat Nav that took me via Gweek (... More

We stumbled upon the Ship Inn and were delighted that we did. We received a very warm welcome, as did our dog, from both the owners and locals. The food was fab - a definite cut above pub grub and even the usual gastro-pub fare - really fresh and tasty, and great value for money. I'd be very happy to... More

Managed to get a table for the evening of the 30th December for five of us. We were sat in the snug which was great as I am a bit deaf, so there was less noise. There was a super menu choice and the three course option was £22. Everyone commented about the excellent quality of the food, presentation and... More

Excellent food for a pub - fresh, innovative, nicely prepared and great value for money. Lovely atmosphere and friendly service too. If only more village pubs could be more like this!

Just returned from having a wonderful meal at this very friendly pub. The menu has a set price of two courses for £17 and £22 for three. For the quality of the food and its presentation this is really good value. I had the crab to start- delicious- followed by the pheasant- very tasty indeed. Hubby had onion soup then... More

This is a really cozy pub/restaurant managed by a delightful young family who are clearly passionate about making delicious food and creating a lovely warm experience for their diners. Definitely book ahead because you don't want to miss out. We started with a crab dish that came with a beetroot coulis and pickled fennel. This was followed by confit of... More

We're so lucky to be close to this terrific village local with excellent restaurant which also does takeaway fish and chips. These are more delicious than any we have tasted. They keep fresh and hot in their packaging for enough time to take home and are superb value for money. The beer's good whilst you wait as well! If you... More
