Regularly eat here when I am in the UK. Have probably eaten at The Ship at least 12 times in 2 years. Loved every meal. Presentation and taste is fantastic. Staff friendly. We will be back. The pork belly on Monday night was delicious. The venison was divine.

Ate here on a Monday evening. It was full to the brim which was a tribute to the fine cooking. The staff managed to find us a table and we ate a simply wonderful meal. I had crab risotto and my partner had the steak pudding. Both were superb. One of the best meals we have tasted

Great food, great selection of starters and a superb specials board of fish dishes. Would recommend the duck and the venison. Both were beautifully cooked and very tender. The prawn cocktail went down well as did the scallops. Loved the pudding of egg and soldiers a very tasty creme brûlée with shortbread. The whole experience was so good we have... More

We stopped here on our way to the ferry terminal in Plymouth, no booking on a very busy Suday lunchtime. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. We had 3 starters between two of us. Whitebait, prawn cocktail and salmon Pate. All were beautifully presented with imaginative sauces and twists. The main meals that others were eating looked and smelt delicious.... More

Friendly welcome. Good range of beers and a good looking menu. Parking can be tricky. Weekends can be busy so worth booking well in advance.

Cooked perfectly and the bisque with it was full of flavour. And the creme brûlée was amazingggg! The only complaint that we had was the fact we are going... More

Called in by chance while exploring the area and a warm welcome was offered, excellent beers on tap and an extensive menu. The crab risotto and the halibut were first rate and a great find in Ugborough. Staff and manager very friendly and helpful.

Had a very pleasant evening here recently with friends. All food looked and tasted very good apparently, with the exception of my mushroom risotto. Oh dear..The colour and appearance was awful and enough to draw comments from my fellow diners. The content was not much better with very finely chopped pieces of mushroom and a very liquid brown sauce. The... More
