The lower deck of this old boat is a fabulous setting to eat the really great fish and chips the restaurant offers. Child-friendly with welcoming staff and a good atmosphere.

We (3couples) went to have dinner at Shippey's on 25Aug2013 in the evening. As the place was well known for the Fish & Chips we had no hesitation ordering. The F&C was good and what's more with live music. We also had a couple of drinks and desserts. Oh !...what a night. Well done Shippey's. Keep it up !

All I can say is "thank you" to the staff at Shippey's, who opened early on a week day in low season so we could have lunch. All freshly cooked! Highly recommended

Was up in Paihia for work conference six of us thought it a novel idea to have dinner at "the ship we passed" The moment we stepped on that boat the barman made us feel like we were inconveniencing him spoke really gruff to us was not at all friendly. The food was to die for though BUT would we go back ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!
