Surprise 60th birthday meal

My family took me to The Ship on Boxing Day for my 60th birthday and it was a lovely surprise. The food had been pre ordered apart from my meal and this seemed to cause a bit of confusion with the waitress as we ended up with one meal less than we wanted. The soup of the day was not... read more

The restaurant was strangely quiet, only one other couple, maybe we were a little early at 6.30 pm on a Saturday. We had excellent starters, black pud for me and king... More

Had a gorgeous Xmas meal on Thursday 3rd December. Couldn't fault anything, delicious. Lovely waitress and barmaid Rebecca looked after us as usual. And then today my Mum and sister went in 2 seperate parties for Xmas lunch and had excellent meals again. Highly recommended!
