Recently enjoyed another lovely meal with friends at the Ship where the service and ambience are always first class.Standard of food is way above your average pub meals----worth the trip for the shrimp crab and prawn starter alone!!

You will find Really nicely cooked food here with a very good menu, a notch above the rest. I regularly eat here with my friends, and never disappointed. The staff do a great job, really helpful and attentive. And don't forget it's a great pub too with a good atmosphere .

Huge and delicious plateful, great veg and trimmings. Roast potatoes let the meal down a tiny bit. Great service, choice and view. Will definitely return. Nice and relaxing and not rushed at all. Our request for extra gravy was met with no problem.

We had heard great things about the Ship from friends and Tripadvisor, but it was quite disappointing, the fish and chips which people had raved about proved to be a rather small portion of fish over fried the batter was almost burned. The steak proved to be very thin and could have been hotter. - disappointing.

We then went up to the room, it was lovely and clean, spacious enough with a quirky bathroom up a few steps. It was well equip with shampoo, conditioner, soap, body... More

Seldom do I ever order a pie but it was a cold evening and I was very hungry. Must have been one of the best pies I've ever eaten, extremely large and under normal circumstances I would have had difficulty finishing it, but, as I said previously, I was hungry.!! The other members of our party were very happy with... More

We arrived on a cold late October afternoon and on checking in were told that the boilers had failed and there was no heating, however the encouraging news was that the Receptionist had bought up all the electric fires in Neston, good news and would have been even better had our one been turned on just to take the chill...

We visited here last night for the second time. The food was fantastic (particularly the goats cheese starter and the lamb) and the crumble was incredible! To top it off, the service from the lovely waitress (Lara) was superb; she was absolutely delightful and couldn't do enough for us. Thank you :)
