In Devon all we want is fresh crab and scallops. We certainly had both at the Ship Inn and so delicious. For a busy pub restaurant the service was superb. Thoroughly recommend but need to book.

Lovely staff. The belly pork is the best I have ever had. The portions are big. The chips are perfect. Every person in our group loved their food. Even though it was busy we didn't have to wait long.

Simply wonderful food. Large menu but everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. Would recommend the mushroom soup starter and the Greek salad main. And the side of chips were divine. Nice to get some healthy offerings in a pub for a change. Definitely a food pub, not somewhere just to drink. Lovely staff, would return.
