“this place is quite a find”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We went here on a recommendation from an old friend, a local lady who eats out quite a lot and owns a boat yard business on the broads. The helpings are generous and the food really well prepared. Try the fish of the day and the steaks The menu is varied but not too many dishes. The wine reasonable value if anything the choice is slightly limited. Beer is also good well kept and clear. Advance booking is almost essential on a Saturday night even out of season, has really good location just a short walk from South Walsham broad but the footpath can be muddy in the wet weather or Ranworth broad and the pub is much much better than the Maltsters pub on the waterfront at Ranworth. We are definitely going to make it a regular haunt of ours from now on.

“Big pub grub”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We loved the Ship, it's a really decent pub lunch and our teenage boys were sated, not an easy task. In fact the helpings are massive, defeating all, but it feels like hearty fare. Try the whitebait for sure fire winner, it's excellent.

“Good pub food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Returned here after a few years since our last visit to find its still a great "pub grub" location. Staff was limited on the Monday lunchtime but we still felt like we were looked after.

“Top Class Food and Service”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had our first visit last month with friends and will have to say that is certainly wont be our last. Lovely ambiance, very welcoming staff, excellent choice of food and the quality was first class. We are looking forward to our return and to sample some more delights from the extensive menu. Well done
