“Great pint...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

As a regular visitor to Aberporth we were pleasantly surprised that the Ship has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated.
A warm welcome including dogs on leads, great beer - which was reasonably priced, a roaring fire, and good banter at the bar...
Just what a local pub should be like!
The menu looked good, but we didn't eat, as we had dinner already prepared - but will try it on our next visit.
Well done and keep up the good work....we will be back!

“1st Class Location, Excellent Food - A Winning Combination!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We eat and socialise here regularly as a couple and with all our family and friends. Friendly and attentive staff, great home cooked meals and an awesome atmosphere. Our favourite meals - Faggots, Steak & Kidney Pie and the Steaks - the kids love the new pizza on the menu too. The lemon cheesecake is gorgeous! A great place with a great view, a must visit!

“Alway worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We are regular visitors to Aberporth and have eaten at The Ship for several years now. The food is excellent 'pub grub' served in a great atmosphere. The staff are most helpful and polite even to a fussy customer like me --- I like the steak and kidney pie but don't care for the kidney -- the chef removes as much kidney as possible from my meal!!! Where else would I get this service. Keep up the good work Lyn, Richard and staff.

“Great Village Pub With Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Charles and Jill Rae
The Ship in Aberporth is a must visit every time we are in the area - about once a month. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is just brilliant. It is good pub food and well cooked fayre, with more than enough on the menu and on the plates, to suit everyone's taste buds. If you are anywhere nearby then don't hesitate. you will not be disappointed.
