Reviews

3 Nights Stay

Stayed for three nights accommodation at The Ship recently and was delighted with the quality and presentation of the food. The menu was varied and of an excellent price. We chose to eat at The Ship each evening, as everything about the dining experience was first rate. The staff were friendly, helpful and it was evident they worried as a happy team. This definitely came across and we observed other guests to be happy and relaxed, too. Also, must say that the breakfast menu and content on offer at the buffet was superb! We can definitely recommend with confidence; and look forward to a return visit! Thank you.

The Ship

Lovely meal

Lovely meal, great staff, nice place – cannot fault anything. We had the chicken wrap and the cauliflower panko tacos- both generously portioned and really tasty. However, we then could not resist the profiteroles and the affogato for dessert. The beer was very good too. We will be back soon!!

The Ship is looking good!

We had a special birthday lunch for 8 and everything was just perfect. The food, service and atmosphere were all spot on and after our walk on the beach in the sun it really made our day and our family celebration. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to Seb, Marcus and all the team for this.

Good food and built in entertainment behind the bar

We stopped in without a booking early Wednesday evening in March and were given a table opposite the bar. The meals were excellent, the young man behind the bar very helpful and very entertaining, every dining establishment should have one of him.
