The Ship doesn't look much from outside (an ex-pub I think) but it hides a wonderful restaurant. Modern stylish decor, attentive and inspired staff, superb food and a relaxed atmosphere. Don't miss this hidden haven.

We go there regularly and we love the food every time. The service is very friendly and even takes some time to talk if there is the time.
