Stayed for one night in 3 rooms. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bathrooms are a good size. Beds very comfortable. Host, John is very friendly. Plenty of off street parking next to the pub. Good breakfast. Easy 5 minute walk to the town centre.

I booked this on the strength of other reviews and I wish I hadn't. Sweet wrappers under the bed, dog mess on the land, no cooked breakfast on the second morning. I only gave it two stars (instead of one) as the breakfast on the first day was very good. Maybe they had a couple of off days but I...

Room very clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast excellent, everything cooked just to our liking with very generous portions. Host could not do enough for us and even gave us a lift to a family party!. Wont hesitate to book again next time we are in the area.

We were really happy with everything, this is a local pub with accommodation upstairs, in a residential part of the city, but it is only a few minutes walk to the cathedral, shops, canal and river. The landlord was really friendly and helpful, and was happy to cater for vegetarians at breakfast. The room was spotless and nicely decorated and...

First impressions: cheap n cheerful but that quickly changed! We were blown away by the service, standard, humour and welcoming by the landlord and his team! Clean and well presented room with excellent facilities. Breakfast was amazeballs! Friendly atmosphere made our stay 5 star quality! Will end this review by saying the pouring pints and front flips wont be forgotten...

Friendly welcome, great landlord, who cooked a mean full English. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Great place to go walking around Ripon. Located next to the river and very close to the canal. Very good value for money. Would definitely stay again. Thanks.

We stayed at the Ship as an overnight stop on our cycling holiday. The staff at the Ship were really friendly and helpful, they stored all our bikes and offered to fill water bottles for the next day's cycle. The location is great, a very short walk in to Ripon were there are lots of restaurants and bars. The breakfast...
