Arrived on a snowy and cold day. Instantly felt warm and welcomed in the bar area. Busy but a few tables spare - good menu with plenty of choice for veggies and different diets. Hubby had the pork filet in a creamy mustard sauce and declared this delicious. I had a falafel burger which was great but couldn't manage the... More

We visited here last Week for lunch. It was quite busy and we were advised there was a wait for food. Not a problem as we got drinks quickly. Our food was lovely, my husband hasn't stopped raving about the soup, my bacon, brie and redcurrant ciabatta was fab and the chunky chips more than yummy. Will be back very... More

Food excellent, can highly recommend the Sunday lunch, £9.95, all home cooked food. We were in a group of 10 and all the different meals looked excellent. Sticky toffee pudding was also delicious. Staff were very friendly and our Bearded Collies were made very welcome too. A warm, welcoming village pub in a lovely setting. Will definitely be visiting again.

This is very suitable for walkers and there are plenty of beautiful walks in the vicinity of the Ship Inn. It's quite small but very cozy, we went for lunch today and we wanted to sit next to a fireplace and although there are 3 fires (that we saw) only one was lit and there was already other guest sat...

We had a lovely table round from the bar. The service was fabulous-couldn't be faulted. The food-we had eyes bigger than our bellies. Had starters-my husband... More

Having visited The Ship a number of times after "rediscovering" this lovely little pub a couple of years ago we decided to visit for a New Years Day lunch. Realising that the pub could well be busy we called an hour before to book a table to make sure we could eat there. On arrival as usual the staff were... More

We've hadn't visited the Ship for quite some time so we chose to dine here with our friends who used to frequent the pub. A very warm welcome & a cosy atmosphere. Excellent service.
