Booked for 4 people for a birthday celebration, two vegetarians, seperate vegetarian menu on website at time of booking. Confirmed this was available when booking. Arrived to be told that they no longer had a vegetarian menu, as "they ended up throwing food away". No attempt had been made to make us aware of this beforehand. Management were argumentitive and...

Lovely pub - very modern but cosy. Had real fires lit which added to the welcoming atmosphere. We were greeted by friendly staff who took our drinks order and told us the specials. The menu is very fancy and offered a variety of different starters, mains and desserts. My boyfriend had the burger and I had the fish and chips.... More

This is is the quintessential English country pub. Warm and inviting - great welcome by bartender! Comfortable bar - and a lovely dining room. Blackboard has at least five local fish to choose from. Great food - well prepared and wonderful friendly service. Find a reason to visit the West Country and eat at The Ship Inn. It was great!

My wife and I visited The Ship on the last night of our short stay in Ugborough. It being a damp November evening we didn't need to book though it did get busy as the evening went on. There is a regular pub area where you can eat or a restaurant area which was more welcoming. The menu is varied... More

The food at the Ship is always of the highest quality with most of it sourced locally. There is always a good variety of dishes to choose from and service is always friendly and efficient.

6 of us had an evening meal here on the recommendation of the 2 who lived locally. Parking in village square short distance away. Old building with modern fit out. Nice atmosphere - tables well spaced so not too noisy even with low ceilings. Good choice of food with fish dishes on a specials board. All 6 of us very... More

Perfect relaxed restaurant for a delicious dinner. Delightful staff and lovely light atmosphere. I had delicious home made scotch egg, followed by a fillet steak which was absolutely perfect. Food locally sourced. Not noisy but not horrible silence either!

Came here for lunch with my dad. Lovely place. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff were friendly. We chose from the fish dishes (fish pie and halibut) both were excellent and shared a pistachio cake desert - delicious!! Would recommend and go back.

Essentially the menu is the same but with a blackboard showing the 3 or 4 fish choices it does change day to day. The service is good and the quality of the food in my opinion ranks among the best of any pub that I have ever eaten at, anywhere. If other pubs could follow this example then there would... More
