We fell upon this pub whilst looking for somewhere for lunch. Excellent food - fish pie was the best I had ever tasted and my husband had the fish cakes which were large and extremely tasty. Very friendly welcome on arrival and beautifully decorated in gastro pub style. Will definitely return and have already recommended to clients who work in... More

Quite good fish pie with good chunks of salmon but I was disappointed not to have prawns included. Haddock was served with a lovely sauce.

Not our first visit to The Ship and definitely not the last. A fine pub in a picturesque village serving imaginative but not fancy food, well cooked to order and served by friendly, helpful staff in a very welcoming atmosphere. Reasonable charges, well kept draught beers and a good wine list - what more could one ask. All in all... More

Following my reading of a few reviews and then looking at their website, I contacted The Ship to see if they were open on Mondays and asked if their full menu was available at lunchtimes. My reason for asking is that my Father is quite restricted in what he can eat, due to intolerances to gluten and dairy. The pub's... More

We went last Thursday I had Hake and my wife had red mullet, some shared olives to start and some very nice red wine. Paul our waiter was as hard working as ever and we were very pleased with the meal. We noted that there were two vegetarian options on the board.

Visited on a Monday evening, did not need to book. Been coming here for 30 years and always receive a warm welcome. The menu is not quite as extensive as it used to be, but still has much to offer. The usual maitre'd was not there but we were looked after well with an intimate candlelit table. Excellent food, cooked... More

This was our 5th visit to the Ship in the last 8 months and yet again it did not disappoint. The food and service was very good and could not be faulted. The only quibble is that the cheese board could do with having a few more crackers to accompany the very generous and lovely cheese selection.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at the Ship this week - friendly staff and mouth wateringly good food in man-size portions. Will look forward to a revisit.
