“Traditional Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

From the minute we arrived (late for our reservation!) we were warmly welcomed as though our lateness was not a problem on this very busy Sunday lunchtime. We both enjoy quality food and service and we were not disappointed with our visit to the Ship Inn. We sat in the sun in the courtyard whilst waiting for our table which we were told would be ready in 20 minutes - and it was. The service in the restaurant was excellent, the food looked delicious, well presented on warm plates and tasted fabulous. We live in Leeds now so this was a trek back in time for my partner and he and I thought it was worth the mileage. I would highly recommend the Ship Inn and we will be visiting there again very soon.

“Best overall meal experience in this area by far...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

My husband and I have been regular visitors to The Ship Inn for the last few years, since relocating back to the area from London. We do a lot of traveling around the world and have eaten in some of the most fabulous places, so like to think of ourselves as "foodies" for want of a better word! The Ship Inn never fails to delight in, not only the quality of food, but also the quality of service and general ambiance. I am a fish lover and the fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. My husband is a "carnivore" and absolutely loves the steaks served here - always cooked to a very high standard and always cooked to order. We generally eat from the specials board as the dishes are frequently changed, so we never become bored of the choices on offer. The starters are usually spectacular, not only in taste but also presentation and I'm frequently snapping away at the dishes we choose to show to friends!! The staff are very friendly and the service is excellent! Nothing is ever too much trouble, and our requests are always met, no matter how diverse they may be!!

I would not hesitate in recommending The Ship Inn - after trying various other pubs/restaurants in the area, I would not eat anywhere else.

“Poor quality fish...........”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was a not a pleasure for me. The mature lady whom served us, was quite rude to say the least........ on not eating my fish she questioned as to why so being polite i said i do not eat much when really i should have said it was terrible unlike this lady whom then passed comment and said i can see you dont eat alot how humiliating i felt so embarrassed by this .......... she then came back to the table and said that the fish was not fresh and would not charge for it. To be honest it should not have been served in the first place, and this person needs to learn some manners when deling with customers, would not recommend and shall not return.
