The staff did a great job of catering for our walking group. As always, the service was spot on, and the beer choice excellent. All around me ,the meals were being eagerly enjoyed . I was unlucky in choosing the battered haddock, which was suspiciously discoloured and tasteless under the batter; but I was too hungry to complain ! That... More

Staff gave a warm welcome. I checked out the menu for vegetarian food and found nothing although there was an option on the specials board. So I asked if I could have a roast without the meat and gravy at a reduced rate. I was offered 2 yorkies, then they come over and asked if i would like stuffing too.... More

We had an evening at The Ship as the culmination of a day of sports with old school friends. I simply love this pub as it offers proper beer at decent prices served with a cheery smile by the proprietor and his terrific team. Food is top notch and the atmosphere and decor are resonant of an era before people... More

Easily accessible from the town centre with ample parking, this is my favourite pub in Oundle. The atmosphere is great, the staff are friendly (dog friendly too) and they have a varied specials board. The food is always of a high quality and freshly cooked and at a reasonable price. They are always welcoming and have a well stocked bar... More

Super welcome and great staff. Food was good, and the rooms were clean and neat. Cannot fault the service, which bigger names could learn from. Nothing was too much trouble, and absolutely the right attitude. If you want to stay in the 'smart' places, then there are other places with less character - sanitized - but the Ship was superb...

Good atmosphere and clearly has a local following of happy punters. The fish and chips are especially good as is the steak sandwich. Sunday roasts are as one would wish for and the service is friendly and courteous. Good value and lovely environment.

Hard to fault our stay in this town centre inn. Excellent value for money. Room was small but warm, clean, quiet and fine for a short stay. The Ship Inn itself is a very busy pub offering some excellent beers and satisfying pub food with plenty of off street parking. The only downside is that breakfast is served only on... More

You can always rely in The Ship for a great pub meal, especially a Sunday lunch. Also a well stocked bar with a wide range of hand pulled ales if that's your thing. The spacious patio is a sheltered sun trap in the summer, and there's live music from time to time. Well worth a visit

The Ship Inn could not have been more cozy or welcoming. Eating solo is never fun but I was shown to a small table by the fireplace and made to feel right at home. The menu is traditional pub food with a variety of specials. I ordered whitebait as a starter: they were plentiful, crispy and delicious. Then a proper... More
