Description: What was once a rowdy sailor's drinking den has been transformed into a civilised Gastro Pub complete with a separate and impressive function and convention facility catering for up to 200 guests. This iconic South Bank Hotel, constructed in 1864, has developed a reputation as a lamblover's paradise and boasts a classic pub style menu sitting beside our more accomplished dishes. The Ship Inn is proud to have a strong commitment to sustainability. Drop by some time and see for yourself what it is we do.

Great service, very friendly and welcoming staff. Food was good and they have a good GF menu too. Best Eton Mess I've ever had!

Had lunch here with a girl friend, sat outside and enjoyed the people watching. Situated in a handy position to Southbank, the Goodwill Bridge and the parklands. We both ordered the lunch rib fillet special. They were cooked to perfection, served with a wonderful peppercorn sauce, amazing chips and a fresh salad. Extensive wine list. Incredible service from two waiters. We regularly meet for lunch, and will certainly return to the Ship Inn. My only disappointment was having to move inside as it get just too cold and windy outside. I highly recommend this place for a relaxed lunch to dinner. They serve food until 2130, so no need to worry about restrictive lunch time hours.

Dined for Saturday lunch before matinee show at Qpac. Location, atmosphere and food/choice could not ask for anything better. Prices were also reasonable. Will definitely return.

The location is handy to South Bank. The meals are reasonable value ( around $23 for a steak). I would go back again for the atmosphere and the service.

The Ship Inn has been renovates since last I visited and it has some nice separate eating and drinking areas with a good atmosphere. I had the Rib Fillet for $23, sadly the steak was terrible - so tough that it was physically hard to cut through. But the chips were amazing. The service was friendly and fast and the beer of a reasonable price. I do think they need some outdoor heaters in all of the outside areas not just at the front. Overall not a bad experience but not overly impressive, average for a pub meal experience I think.
