We stayed for a night at the Ship recently and on this particular night the front of house was run by 1 member of staff who I believe was covering from another hotel in the chain. What a fantastic job he did! From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome and were able to check into our room slightly early. The staff member worked tirelessly to serve not only drinks but food to the residents. He made sure everyone was being looked after and was very efficient and courteous. Our room was lovely with a free bottle of wine being a nice touch, food in the restaurant and the atmosphere in the bar were both great.Thank you We’ll definitely be back!

Having had wonderful stays here before with our three dogs, it was an easy decision to return. This time, we stayed longer than usual and as always, The Ship and it's staff didn't disappoint. Out of the four nights we stayed, we ate here in the evening for three of them and the food was gorgeous - as was breakfast every day (the dogs enjoyed their sausages too!). Our room was dog friendly (lovely welcome treats, bowls, blankets and beds) and was comfortable and clean. Special thanks to Matthew for his warm, friendly and fun hospitality and to Marcus, Seb and Valerie too, along with Ella and the rest of the team. You made us feel so welcome. See you soon!

We went for Sunday Lunch and found the food to be of excellent quality. Although we had the traditional roast there were lots of other choices. My husband recommends the sesame coated chicken served with an Asian coleslaw. I am gluten free so had the soup with gluten free bread and the choice for gluten free meals is good. Service was excellent and the place has a lovely ambience. Being Norfolk dogs are welcome in the bar in which can also eat. Overall well worth a visit!

Having driven past The Ship on several occasions we decided to try it out for a New Year weekend away.
What a great choice and we literally couldn’t find anything wrong despite a “Four in a bed” style inspection.
Food. Top notch
Breakfast. Excellent
Room. Clean and well appointed
Parking. Good
Pets. Treated better than guests (only joking)
Ambience. Local tourist mix was good.
Staff. Brilliant
