    Sorry guys, I'm going to have to you a really poor review which I'm sure you're expecting! We went for a family lunch to celebrate my brother getting engaged. Before we even arrived our booking was pushed back by an hour with no explanation. From the outset it was clear it was very busy with no one directing us to the table, queue at the bar etc. We found our table ourselves, had to chase down waitresses for drinks and food orders. We were sat near a large group of people drinking and celebrating a 50th birthday who had brought their own karaoke machine!! We waited over an hour for a starter to arrive, othet starters forgotten completely. Eventually mains arrived, my brother and his fiancé's orders completely forgotten. My son couldn't eat his chicken burger as it was too tough. Bolognaise resembled a Dolmio jarred sauce. Generally food not great. My Nan enjoyed her fish and chips at least! In fairness to staff they had clearly been left understaffed and the manageress couldn't be apologetic enough and gave us our meals for free. That being said, we won't be back and can't recommend you.

    This was a tricky time for our party of 10 people. We were laying our Dad's/husband's, Bampi's ashes to rest and also celebrating the 80th birthday of a family member. We were treated with kindness, thoughtfulness and consideration during our time in The Ship. No-one was aware our father was born literally round the corner in Isca Road. This was bringing Dad home; we were accompanied by our 92 year old mother, not the easiest of situations. Thank you.

    Visited for Sunday lunch. Overwhelming smell of bleach on arrival which was very unpleasant. Waited quite a while to get and pay for a drink as a new member of staff was being shown all the different ways of using the till, rather than just the way I was paying. I’m glad the Sunday dinner was cheap because it was awful. The chicken and yorkshire pudding was fine but all of the veg were practically raw, even “roasted” root veg. Really awful and would definitely not go back

    Food was lovely, however was completely let down by our order being lost and waiting over an hour for our food. Other customers had come after us, eaten and left by the time we were served our meal. Staff were understandably busy and friendly but didn’t make up for the frustration caused on Mother’s Day.

    When looking at the menu we were informed that the cauliflower cheese was not available…on Mother’s Day?? Surely everything on the menu should have been available on, what is a VERY lucrative day for food establishments. We waited very nearly an hour for our starters which were beyond basic..no garnish on any dish, no presentation, no lemon for the scampi & only packets of tartare sauce. Our main courses were delivered BEFORE the starters were cleared. No replacement cutlery given-we actually held onto our original cutlery because we overheard a complaint from the table nearest to us. No salt & pepper on the table & when requested, both were dirty with dried on food. Requested separate gravy which arrived with a ‘skin’ on it, & lukewarm, so how long had it been sitting? Both the broccoli & Yorkshire pudding were cold & the Yorkshire was tasteless & needed to have been seasoned. We won’t ever eat here again!

    Went for a family Sunday dinner with 2 under 3s and a baby, staff were very accommodating and friendly, they don’t do separate children’s meals but offer 50% off main courses. Food was plated up and very tasty, plenty of meat, roasties & Yorkshire pud, only comment would be that more veg would have been nice, 2 of our party had starters and 2 had puddings which were well presented and tasty. Good value overall and would certainly visit again.

    Good quality pub food. Mix up with the order so we were dish short - great service while the last dish was prepared. Brought extra chips and mozzarella sticks. All 8 of us enjoyed our meal.
