Good food

Had been to the ship about a year ago and was not that impressed, but after hearing positive reports thought we would give it another try. This time much better. We called in on a Friday night, with family. I had the fish and chips which were good, tasty fish with a nice batter. Others in the group... read more

Really great service. Food is always delicious no matter what was ordered. Had a really enjoyable evening with my family celebrating a golden wedding anniversary. Perfect location by the sea

We had a wonderful roast dinner with a great view in the restaurant. It was very busy when we finished but staff were very friendly and food excellent. We will definitely be going again. We booked which was simple over Facebook and they gave us a table with a view.

We visited here on Monday, after a horrendous experience along the road at Vista Mar, we decided to try The Ship, we are so pleased we did! Lovely inside, excellent friendly service and gorgeous home cooked food! Highly recommend :)

We arrived at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon for lunch/dinner with 4 adult sand 5 children aged 5-13. The menu was great value for money and the service from bar staff was super accommodating and very personal. When the food arrived, the portions were a generous size and absolutely delicious. Taking advantage of the 2 for £12 meals and 2... More

Convenient stop if you're walking the Cleveland Way. Food was good, both quality and selection. Good choice of spirits and beers at the bar. Very "pub"y atmosphere, right on the water's edge. Ample free parking. No Wifi.

We had lunch at the Ship on the one good day between Christmas and New Year, when half of North Yorkshire seemed to be taking advantage of the weather, many of them wanting to eat in the Ship. Service was efficient, but because they were so busy, there was the inevitable wait. The food was not quite as good as... More

My mum had some American friends to stay and they wanted to visit an English pub and eat fish and chips whilst watching the sea so this met the bill on all counts. We got a friendly welcome and got a seat in the restaurant right next to the window with a sea view.
