Not been here is many a year, but enjoyed a very good lunch earlier on today. The first thing that I noticed was how much smarter and grown up the decor is since my last visit. It has been tastefully put together and there is a really friendly and welcoming ambiance about the place.
The menu is wide ranging and extensive with a natural emphasis on seafood given the location. I had an excellent fish pie with a generous serving of cabbage cooked in mustard and bacon which was exceptional value at £9.95. My dining companion had a docker filling brie and bacon baguette with fries which also came in at under a tenner.
With prices like these and very attentive service it is clear to see why The Ship is such a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. Michelin starred chef, Tom Kitchin obviously thinks so, because he was enjoying lunch with his family at another table.
A place I definitely intend to return to, soon.
