“Solid pub grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch, quiet on arrival very busy by the time we left. Fairly basic menu but I had the Haddock and it was very good. In-laws went for 2 tasty ham and cheese paninis with a side of very tasty chunky fries. The better half had quiche and said it was very good. Service quick to start with but admittedly we were in early and it busied up very quickly. Toilets were clean and friendly. We had 2 children under 3 with us so we're avoiding the smarter options available on the island. Would choose The Ship again without hesitation.

“Good basic Pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

We found this to be a really friendly pub. The staff are excellent, however the food is very basic 'pub grub' and somewhat expensive for what you get.

“Cosy in winter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Small and cosy for winter, dark and in need of a revamp for a summer visit although there is a small garden. Drinks a bit pricey. Food average. Saved by the location.
