We had an excellent meal at the ship restaurant. Me and my partner thought that the service from the barmaids Gabriella & Ashley was brilliant and great table service. We highly recommend coming here.

For many years I have recommended The Ship to friends and visitors, as a restaurant above the rest. Last week, four of us booked our usual table...I won't say which...for an early evening meal. The ambiance was great, a real pub scene with great beer. The serving staff were superb as always, despite a change of personnel.They knew the dishes...

We had lunch here today. The location is brilliant and the restaurant is warm and inviting. Unfortunately my food was very disappointing. I ordered the warm pork loin sandwich, which was cold. Added to this the brioche was thickly spread with butter so I was unable to eat it as it was too greasy - admittedly a personal preference. I...

We went to the Ship Inn on January 2nd a bank holiday where many people had decided to go there for a bite to eat at lunchtime. The manager was very good and very welcoming. The staff were properly trained and knew the menu content. They also anticipated what we ordered with the cutlery provided. i.e. we ordered soup and...

Booked The Ship for evening meal out after Christmas. My partner had the 8oz Rump with hand cut chips which was cooked to perfection. I had the beer battered cod with hand cooked chips and home made tartar sauce again an excellent choice. For desert my partner had the apple/winter berry crumble with ice cream and I had the sticky...

I think this hotel would benefit from some local competition. It's the only hotel in Parkgate so it attracts guests regardless. The hotel in my opinion is just ok for the price. Firstly when you walk through the door you are greeted with the most pungent of fish smells. I love fish, but that smell turned my stomach. It tells...

First of all we were told that we couldn't even look at the Christmas menu because we hadn't pre-ordered (although we had booked). Service was very slow. One item on the menu apparently contributed to charity but we could get no information about cost or whether it was optional. The first course of "brown shrimps, prawns and crab with toasted...

We wanted food and drinks but hadn't booked a table. It seemed most of the tables had reserved on them but no people? This is a pub as well as a hotel & restaurant. We did have a drink at the bar but was offered a table which was squashed tight in a corner so much so my husband couldn't...

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 .
