Heard it was under new management. Much improved for a nice old pub in a superb location with views over the estuary. Lovely food at reasonable prices. Friendly service. Looking forward to next visit.

Generous portions, loads of veg, choice of 4 meats, and for £8.95.... a great Sunday lunch! Book in advance if you want to sit inside, but if the weather is as glorious as today you'll want to be outside. Tables to the front and side, and a beer garden to the rear but no playground or the like.

Very good selection of reasonably priced bar meals. Have never had reason to complain and visit quite often. Staff very friendly will serve half portions of some meals for people with smaller appetites, as I am

Only visited for a couple of pints but the views were great and the beer was nice. recommended! There is a darts board and pool table at the end and there are plenty of tables to sit and have a drink and/or have a meal.

Just returned from a Mother's day meal at the Ship Inn, Sandside (Cumbria). You couldn't hope for a better day for it. Really enjoyed having a large glass of rosé around the table outside, with the warm sun on my back. Atmosphere was also lovely inside. Service was prompt, efficient, friendly, seamless and on the ball really. Tired decor in... More

The food here is normally very good, and the Sunday roast was no exception. The service is normally very good as well, but since the restaurant area was fully booked, we sat in the bar area. We were asked what we wanted to drink and after a long delay, our order was taken. The food arrived promptly and was good,... More

We booked a table for two the day before Valentine's day to avoid the rush. Our booking was 7.30 but when we came to order the special was sold out. Service was good, but the room was cold, WiFi didn't work,and had to pay cash because the card machine didn't work. The food was good with generous portions but not... More

We visited the Ship whilst in the area having had a good meal here last April. We had recommended this restaurant to friends we were with based on our last visit and we were not disappointed. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was not very busy, but the friendly welcome from the staff helped create a good atmosphere.... More
