Four of us enjoyed a delicious dinner last night. The sea bass special tasted very fresh and the other special of duck and noodles went down very well. The staff were great as ever giving good service.

My husband and I ate at The Ship Inn last night. The pub was busy but even so the service was friendly and efficient. I think you have to take this into account when you are going to a popular pub that things may take just a little longer. I had the lovely prawn and smoked salmon platter which was... More

While on holiday in the area with family we decided to go to the Ship Inn for food as it was just down the road. This was around five o'clock, and we arrived to be told that they didn't serve dinner until six thirty (we found this unusual but it seemed to be a common feature of pubs in the... More

Whilst in a very convenient location & the food was tasty (if not over priced) I was largely ignored at the bar when attempting to order food by the barman who clearly felt cleaning his bar was the priority😠. Post lunch when most diners had departed a lot of tables were left uncleared & became v attractive for the Sussex... More

Having had lunch here earlier in the year with fab food and service and we were now staying just down the road in West Wittering we took the opportunity to do the short cycle ride on The Salterns Way to have an evening meal. The pub has a lovely buzzing atmosphere and the staff were so friendly and helpful.We were... More

I have known this Inn for over twenty years and it is now, probably the best it has ever been. The Staff are terrific and really do try to be as helpful as possible. Extremely popular and busy place during weekends and summer holidays. They do reserve tables and cater for parties. Plenty of outside seating and it has a... More

Great food and great service. When what you fancy is just a snack and what arrives is beautifully cooked and hot then happy faces all round. My ciabatta sandwich was as light as you like and the chips were great. Service was prompt and friendly. One tip, is you are planning to visit in the next few weeks, the wasps... More

Nice setting and very helpful and nice waitresses and barman. Food OK without being exceptional. Shame about the wasps outside but nothing the Ship could have done about that. Very good choice of beers.

Met some friends here for lunch whilst on holiday and had a good lunch. Its a nice traditional pub atmosphere which is in fast decline in the UK where they serve good food and good local beer too. Can get pretty busy outside in good weather due to it's location but well worth a stop for a pint or more.

Superb location for this pub, just a hop and a skip from the sea where we enjoyed a lovely walk with the dog and finished up here for lunch. Enjoyed some fresh and tasty fish and chips washed down with local cider, yum! My only thought was that the lunch service was rather limited being served until 2.30pm on a... More
