“Nice pub - good food and drink.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Very popular pub - for good reason. Nice local food and drink(even has own micro-brewery). Refurbished recently I think. Excellent bar staff.

“!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Food was average and good for younger children, however my visit was spoilt by the pub allowing dogs in. The pub was very busy and just before my food arrived a couple sat behind with a dog, who was wet and smelly and then to polish this experience off the dog was sick!

“Hygeine could do with a woman's touch!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Visited a couple of weeks ago. Nice enough pub but the toilets and the tables could do with a good clean. There is obviosly no proper cleaning rota. The area at the back of each toilet is really dirty. Tables are sticky and generally grubby.If these things were attended to it would rate much higher.

“Expensive!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

My Wife and I visited The Ship Inn Last week.
We both ordered Kippers and a pint of their Beer.
The Beer was very good. The kippers arrived after 15 minutes. One Kipper each with a slice of bread, nothing else, no Garnish or anything. The Kippers were nice but I think everything is well overpriced
2 Pints of Beer and 2 Kippers cost us £18.60.

“Excellent beer, mediocre food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Delightful location. Beer brewed on the premises is excellent. When we ate there, however, we found the food to be rather disappointing - the soup and the main course both arrived at the same time but the soup had to be sent back as it was absolutely stone cold. The pub gets busy, particularly on Sunday lunchtime, with the result that a long queue firms out if the door which can become quite intrusive if you are seated at one of the tables in the main bar. On a cold day it can get quite chilly with the door often being propped open by queuing customers.

So, overall great for a beer when the pub is quieter, but we wouldn't eat there again. Fantastic folk music session once a month with some great players and friendly people.
