I went here with my wife and teenage son. I was the only one to have a starter, which I regretted, not because the whitebait was disappointing but because the portion was almost a full meal in itself.
I had the Ship inn pie and found this to be delicious and again the helping was very generous. My wife tasted the pie and commented on how, unlike many similar dishes, one could really taste the ale. Not cheap but reasonably priced and very enjoyable.
