My husband and I were travelling to Nottingham for a family party we arrived early on the morning of our booking and parked in the car park of the Old Ship Inn. The lady who was opening up to do the cleaning, spoke to us and told us that her Son, Craig had just taken over . Within 10 minutes... More

A warm welcome, very pleasant setting and beautifully prepared and presented food. Prices were very reasonable and the range available good. Chips hot and crisp and the ham delicious. Good coffee too! Lisa was charming. We will be going back.

We went to a gig at Lowdham Hall and decided to stay at the Old Ship Inn. We have eaten here before and staff, and locals have always been very friendly. The room was large, clean and tastefully decorated. The only "complaint" (and it didn't bother us too much) was the noise/music from the bar. Thought I'd mention it cos... More

We enjoyed an absolutely fantastic meal at the Old Ship yesterday evening. Fresh plaice and a fillet steak were both cooked to perfection. A freshly made pear and apple crumble and custard also delighted! We eat at all sorts of restaurants, but have recently visited the Ship far more often than any other eateries, as it is so good. The... More

Booked Sunday lunch here for five as it was my birthday. We waited 75 mins for the meal to be served, not only poor service but the meal was abominable.I complained and was given a discount the excuse was "new staff". Hence will not be visiting again.

I stayed at the Old Ship for several weeks up until Christmas and I really enjoyed my time there. I spend a lot of time away from home with my job and always try to find somewhere with some atmosphere and I certainly found some here. The landlord and landlady Kerry & Maggie are so welcoming and make you feel... More

The Old Ship Inn has improved very much from a few years ago. I went with a friend for lunch recently and had a lovely tasty meal at a very good price. I like the fact that we had a white tablecloth which makes the place look more professional. I will certainly be going back again soon, hopefully for an... More
