We arrived, and was welcome by the female member of staff, who looked after us whilst we was there. Was quiet when we first arrived but was soon busy due to an 18th birthday party. Food was OK, service was better.

The service was appalling, we waited an hour for the food and when it came it wasn't what I ordered. The staff were surly and there was no heating on, it was very cold. We all agreed that we won't be going back there

13 of us went for a meal at 5pm. We were greeted by friendly staff in a lovely cosy atmosphere. Some chose 2 meals for £10, which were a good size. A lot of different meals were ordered and they all came piping hot, and were enjoyed by everyone.looking forward to going again.

just visited the ship for Sunday evening tea.......two adults, two teens (one teen a vegetarian). Could not fault our meals, all had starters (the sharing platter is huge and absolutely lovely) all starters great. Great menu with loads of choices, good choice of veggie options. I had pie of the day (minced beef and onion) which was delicious. Very disappointed... More

We haven't visited since last management... before current management. Previous ones did absolutely put us off ver returning. They were so so rude and basically very people unfriendly. They were obnoxious to customers. When we realised the ship had been taken over again by new managers, we felt we really should try. Especially as ones before last ones were good.... More

Delicious freshly cooked food, great service in nice surroundings. Our first visit under the new management, the chicken, ham & leek pie was the best l've ever tasted. We'll definitly be back soon.

After a tour of the Cumbrian coast and Barrow we decided to stop for a snack and called in at The Ship. It was a nice building on a corner, well decorated around the front and the staff were very helpful. Our meals were nice and we enjoyed our quick stop. It was as expected, good value for money with... More
