Had lots of meals here. Never disappointed. Nice log fire in the winter. Lots of tables outside in the summer.

“Stayed the night in excellent cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We stayed for one night in the cottage and spent the evening in the pub next door for a wonderful meal. The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable and we were very pleasantly surprised. We were quite a large group with specific diet requirements but nothing was too much trouble with the kitchen making specific meals for 3 of us! The service in the bar and restaurant was fantastic and the real fires were very welcome! How we ate the breakfast the next morning I don't know but it was the best cooked breakfast I think I've ever had - perfectly cooked, not at all greasy, and excellent quality sausages and bacon. We will definitely return in the future.

“Lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stopped at this pub on a recent girlie weekend. We were slightly disappointed with the roast as the meat was very rare (beef) and they brought us 2 dishes of veg for 7 people, to be fair, the staff did bring us extra veg at our request. The roast potatoes were anaemic and the meal was cold. I think the pub is essentially good as the other meals (fish and chips looked lovely) We would go again though as sometimes you can just catch a pub on a bad day. The staff were all terribly polite.

“Good food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We were staying in the area and a party of 12 us came here for a meal on a very busy Sunday lunchtime (having booked in advance), The food was lovely and the service excellent. We brought our own birthday cake , which was brought to the table with the candles lit, and plates and cutlery were supplied. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

“Same old good pub food - everytime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

The Ship is one of my local pubs and my wife and I have eaten here on and off for the last two and a half years. It was our 25th anniversary this week, and although we had booked to go somewhere slightly more special in the evening, we changed our plans because my wife wasn't feeling that great and we headed to The Ship for lunch instead. As is typical for The Ship, you get great food for a good price. I had hake in a Mediterranean broth and my wife had the steak pie. Both were good sized portions (as always) and both were very tasty indeed! We also shared chocolate cake and ice cream, which was delicious. Service was very friendly, we had a fun time, I had a Ballards beer and we went home very happy. I know it was a special day, but sometimes you just want to go somewhere like your local that you know well where you know what to expect and know you will be happy when you leave. Thanks John and co - you are the best! See you next time!
