We were seen by the hostess, who was agitated : the restaurant had many empty tables yet we were informed they could not let us order a standard roast lunch because the chefs had to attend to the people who had booked in advance (i think because of...

Dear angieofbicknacre, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review which I feel is quite unfair (keeping in mind that you have not eaten or spent enough time at our business). Sunday is one of our busiest days and we always recommend booking a table to avoid any disappointment. As my team had explained to... More

Went there for lunch last Saturday and it was ever so lovely. We had few different starters and bar snacks to share and they were just delicious. Service was impeccable too. Staff members are very helpful and chatty. We had a dog with us and they offered water and doggy treat straight away. Definitely will go back soon!

Had Sunday lunch at the Ship Inn, absolutely delicious. Beef cooked perfectly and the biggest and tastiest Yorkshire puddings I've ever had. I truly was transported back to my mum's Yorkshire puddings, they were so good! Staff are friendly and helpful and we finished off our lovely lunch with chocolate tart with cherry sorbet, which was the perfect finish. Our... More

Stopped with a couple of friends for a glass of wine, £7 per glass, did not buy bottle because we drink different wines. Thought it was a bit OTT. Would have been cheaper to bought couple of bottles and sat in the garden. Décor looks lovely, not eaten there so cannot comment about the food, but what I saw other... More
