Lovely meal in the Ship Inn tonight . A cosy place with coal fire blazing on this cold night . The food was delicious . Homemade steak and kidney pie was fabulous with chunks of lean meat . Really good winter warmer. Well done everyone 👍

A cold Friday night in early November. I expect it was raining and it was certainly dark and gloomy.... We entered the Ship and we're instantly warmed the smiles of the staff, the taste of the wine and in both me and my wife's case, the gorgeousness of the steak and kidney pie. True winter food to leave you happy... More

Although this pub is popular with people who dine, it is worth noting that it is also a pretty decent pub. The decor is of the old-fashioned pub style with lots of dark wood and a cosy fire, and the beer was good. Service was also quick and friendly.

Came to the Ship Inn for Sunday dinner with family as soon as we walked in we were made to feel welcome. We all had the roast beef with Yorkshire Puddings. The beef was tender and free from fat and the gravy was one of the best I have had when out for Sunday dinner. We asked for more and... More

This is a great village pub in the attractive village of Aldborough that is just up the road from Boroughbridge. It looks good from the outside, with some sheltered seating out at the front, and some garden bench tables on a small grass area at the rear, which will be good for an outside drink on warm days. The pub... More

Poor service- pretty much self service!! Told our comments that the dish was so heavily salted as to make it inedible would be passed on to chef but we waited and waited for a response but got none! Very disappointed that our comment was not even acknowledged! Sorry Ship at aldborough - not good enough!!

The lunch was really delicious, the staff were so helpful and the landlady was overseeing the restaurant to ensure everyone was well cared for. Aldborough is a beautiful village too. Sunday lunches can be such a disappointment, but not this one. Thank you x
