The Ship is our preferred local, and so when we were looking for a venue for a post Christening event, The Ship was our first choice. We booked The Ship to cater for 60+ guests following our son's Christening and they closed to regular customers to allow us use of the premises all afternoon. The food and service was first class. We had agreed on the food beforehand and we were not disappointed with a well presented and laid out table, and many were able to enjoy more than one helping.
The weather was glorious, so the large courtyard and lawned garden was ideal. Had the weather not been so good, there was a large upstairs room which would have been our contingency, as it would have been cosy with us all in the bar and restaurant area.
Many of our friends had not been to Newnham before and although they were not staying over, they have said they will return and stop at The Ship because they had such a good time.
