Was a little concerned due to some of the poor reviews but on the whole happy with our meals. A small amount of tweaking could make it very good but just nut picking really. Veg was a little overcooked home made chips were lovely steak was very well cooked but a little tough prawns would be better if bigger but... More

Visited as I had heard it was a lovely place to eat. When myself and my partner arrived we were told by a very abrupt waitress that we had to order quick as they had a large party coming soon, we were very rushed! They did not know if the kebab on the menu was a hanging kebab or not,... More

Great atmosphere, beer and shots very nice. A little cold on the afternoon we visited although the landlady did say they have or had a power cut. It's a must visit if your on the island.

We popped down to the Ship one tea time as we live nearby and we were very happy with the overall experience. The food was quickly served and all there party who had food remarked how much they had enjoyed it.

Last Sunday booked table for 4 having been told it was a very good place to eat. When we arrived in the car park it was almost empty, not a good sign! We were shown to our table by a very nice young waiter. The atmosphere is good, tables well spaced, large dining area, nice bar and whole area in... More

Me and my husband are regulars and what a change it is from the last landlord/lady!! Prices have dropped dramatically on food and drink which is s good thing. We have had a number of meals and never complained always delicious and plenty. Landlord very friendly and willing to help in any way.

Juicy gammon steak and chips delivered with a good atmosphere and Criac. I asked for a extra egg on my Gannon which was delivered free of charge! My partner stayed on for a few more pints with me in the outside patio's which are great Sun traps, all in all a nice reasonable priced meal in great surroundings with Dave... More

Visited with a group of friends for a bite to eat and a bit of fun with the quiz. First disappointment was the lack of choice for vegetarians and the lack of some food from the mains menu which meant people having to rethink their orders.
