The Ship is right in the town square and offers a friendly atmosphere with great pub grub. They have many screens in which to watch your favourite sport, a nice courtyard and one of the only pool tables in town.

Genuine Emsworth pub. Friendly staff (especially Maz, who cooks the most amazing Sunday roast!). Sunny, well maintained and enclosed outdoor eating area. The pub dog may look a bit scary, but is a total softy and great with our children :) Good prices, good food and good service.

The drinks are over priced and is very noisy when trying to chat to friends and you have random annoying people bugging you but has a good atmosphere.

Called in Sunday at approx 9:50pm. Was told by bar maid she had just turned everything off, so we could not have a drink there. Turning away custom when you will soon have a Wetherspoons taking the custom is a bit foolish, but the pub will probably make a nice convenience store or flats when it closes.
