We popped in here on a cold, rainy afternoon. We were greeted with a warm welcome, including our puppy. The service was prompt and the food great. The kids meals were home cooked and good quality. The fish and chips was crisp, lovely and huge

For a pub in such a prime location.....The Ship Inn is such a disappointment. It was a cold day in January when went. The pub was cold, no cosy fire burning. The food was adequate but expensive for what it was. The staff seemed disorganised...More

Tw of us had scampi and two the lamb cutlets. Whilst the food was fantastic my scampi has no tartare sauce with it and when asking the waitress anything they were quite honestly rude and unhelpful. I would visit again based on the food being...More

Sorry, don't know. I haven't been in for some years. The system is poor as it doesn't allow a date of more than a year earlier from the review. I am not interested in Sky TV anyway!
