4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Quiet Sunday winter evening, very few pubs serving food. The Ship saved us and served very good pub food

“What a great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

First time here for some years and wow what a change! Great menu, great welcome and great food. Wednesday evening at the end of October and very busy through the early evening. The service was swift and personable, couldn’t be faulted. Compared with an experience of a local branch of “Prezzo” earlier in the day there was just no comparison! The scallops and Belly Pork are to die for – with portions like this you could just! Only slight issue was the coffee (I am always told I am far too fussy) but I suspect it had been sitting around for some time. The latter is however a very minor point. One of the top pub restaurants in the East Devon area.

“Better this if you can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Ate here on a Wednesday evening and it was buzzing, fortunately we had booked - even in October I'd recommend booking!
Warm greeting and excellent service.
The food was first class, we ordered starters and mains of battered cod and chips. It was an enormous portion that we received, very light batter & scrummy chips It's unusual for my partner to be beaten by his food but even he couldn't finish it all!
The quality was excellent and we will return!

“Lovely food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

A Seaton local tipped me off about this place and I decided to check it out because local knowledge is often invaluable. There were plenty of customers when I walked in one Monday lunchtime (which is always a good sign), and the food was top notch, as was the local ale I tried too. The ambience is friendly and homely with a charming country interior, will definitely be returning in the future to sample the evening menus.
