We went to the Ship because my dad first went there in 1947, his father Harry Greatrex used to live on the meadow and run the chain ferry that ran across the river. We had a lovely Sunday carvery, it was the best carvery we have had in a very long time, choice of four meats, at least six different veggies and gravy to die for, well done, the surrounds are lovely also, nice friendly staff. Well done to everyone.
