Some really good points: very clean linen and facilities, very friendly helpful staff and fresh flowers. The bad: we only had dinner on one night, it was overpriced for the standard of the cooking and we had to send the desert back.

Very old traditional pub with multiple rooms to sit and enjoy. It's quite dark and needs a refurbishment Friendly staff. Old style pub food was ok had worst and much better.

Just visited for drinks, such a warm welcome from the barman, excellent service, thoroughly enjoyable experience. Even the children commented on how friendly it was. Didn't eat but will definitely return one day. Fantastic pub.

Best pint of Tribute I have ever had! We were in for lunch today and we loved it, this is our second trip to The Ship as the missis loves the food! Well worth a stop here. Staff are very friendly as soon as you walk in and that fire was roaring.

We popped in here for a drink before dinner. Barman stroking the cat and then bringing food out and serving drinks without washing his hands . Disappointing as a nice pub but I wouldn't eat here with the cat sitting at the bar .
