“Desserts”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Myself and a friend visited the Ship Inn purely to have a dessert. They looked very nice in the fridges but my black forest gateau was dry and not very appetising. They surely can't be home-made because the quality is not good, and for the £4 price tag it's not worth it.

“Lovely meal with brilliant service”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Went here for a catch up with my friend just to have a drink but we decided to have food, even tho we haven't book a table and the restaurant was busy the staff found us a table. We order our food from the light bite menu lots of choices and really good price 8.95 for two course meal. The food we order was delicious the portions were perfect sizes and the staff was really friendly, I defiantly will be going back there.

“Christmas meal”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Went here yesterday for my works christmas meal. There wasn't anything wrong with the meal itself, it was rather tasty in fact, the problem I had with it was portion size. I had two slices of turkey, two small roast potato's and a parsnip. There wasn't an awful lot of veg to go about either. Was really disappointed about this as it wasn't cheap at £16 for soup and a couple of slices of turkey. The other thing that really ruined the experience for me was the manageress accused our party of stealing table decorations before even having looked for it. It had turned out the decoration had been knocked off the table and once it was found, no apology was offered. Wouldn't ever go back there and will not be recommending it to anyone I know either.

“Pleasant place. nice clean pint”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went here after a works party at the bell inn.
Havent been here for ages.
Service was great, with a smile aswell.
Prices were reasonable.
Cakes at the bar looked amazing, told they were all cooked at the ship.
Stayed there all evening, we were the last to leave.
but even then at 11.15pm we didnt feel unwanted.
No rush take your time finish your drinks.
order your taxi's.
A pleasant evening had by all.
One down side was my pepsi was flat.
no problem.. item replaced straight away, no questions asked.
thanks.
Will return and try out your main menu soon, not just your cakes.
