Having sampled the main menu and specials we had to re visit to try the curry night. The chicken curry was amazing, the beef Madras succulent and packed a punch. The lovely accompaniments, popodoms, chutney and Nann bread completed a fabulous feast. Before and after...More

Owner-run pub serving tasty traditional pub food. Good sized portions for healthy appetites served super-promptly and hot. We had steak and gammon, both perfectly cooked. Attentive, friendly and efficient service beyond our expectation. Really excellent meal in every aspect.

Another fantastic visit to the Old Ship Upwey. Such a warm welcome from the landladies and staff, tried a new scrummy drink and lovely chat with the locals. We're truly blessed to have such a lovely pub within easy reach. Thank you.
