Enjoyed good food and good hospitality here. Very traditional little pub, warm and cosy with a good logburner.

Called into the local pub whilst on holiday. A quaint pub not spoilt and turned into one of these big chain souless all look the same pubs. Nice atmosphere, friendly greeting from all in pub. Ordered food , delivered quickly and lots of it. Well cooked and very tasty.

Staying locally in Drummore we thought we'd eat at The Ship. Two of the recent TripAdvisor reviews were less than complimentary so we thought we would try it and decide for ourselves. And very pleased we were. There were locals around the bar - and why not? The clue is in the name - locals - and it is their... More

We are disappointed with your comments. We have a policy of asking customers if everything is alright with their meal. If you had a problem we would have re-cooked your meal, exchanged it for something else or deducted it from your bill. We do not understand why you would not complain at the time and pay for something you did... More

The food was actually relatively good. However be prepared to be sat in the village bar while you eat. That brings all sorts into ear shot so your not going to get a private quiet meal unless the bar is empty.
