The homemade scotch eggs were warm and runny in the middle and served with a beetroot sauce. Very nice! The Wadwoths 6X washed... More

We called here by chance, looking for a late quick pub lunch. In fact, the menu was so good that we ate more than we'd intended. The service was very friendly and professional and, judging by the food, the Inn seems to have a chef who has a rare talent and who loves his job.

First visit since done up two(?) years ago. Tastefully done with modern lighting, new loos (always a good sign!). Keeps the atmosphere of a pub part at the front but the shape of the dining part at the side and rear means you are not too thronged, even though it was fairly busy for Sunday lunch. We were surprised how... More

We had a funeral wake there. They were very thoughtful and kind. We had finger food and drinks i.e. Tea/coffee/or stronger. The staff were excellent and kept us fed and watered. We could not have wished for better.

Booked at last minute for a Friday evening and were pleased to find a table available. We enjoyed drinks in the bar before being shown to our table, where we were offered a La Carte or Christmas Menu (plenty of choice on each, and some dishes on both menus). All courses tasted great and were beautifully presented too. All in... More

Went to The Ship Inn yesterday for a dinner. We had starters and a main course for £16.50. The starters were really tasty and the roast potatoes were spectacular. Overall a really lovely meal and will be returning.
