We're often at the Ship for dinner and sometimes lunch, and are never disappointed. The staff are welcoming and gracious, the food is always delicious and the prices are reasonable. We highly recommend the ribeye steak and the triple cooked chips-it's never, ever a disappointment!More

The food is good here, as is the extensive and eclectic drinks and cocktails menu. Unfortunately, the service is casual and inconsistent, which doesn't match the high end food and prices. Sometimes the staff can be rude. There have been occasions where we have ordered...More
