    This is my second review in the last few months and in both cases I am sorry to report the the service, noise and ambiance situations have not improved. The pub is trying (and succeeding) to provide an excellent menu but the menu is too mixed and means that people who just want a burger and a pint make the noise level and ambiance unpleasant. My guests & myself do not want to eat such good food (at sensible prices) in a loud environment where as people try to converse ever louder and louder until the volume is too great. However the main problem is the slow service (as my last review). It is not that the staff are unpleasant or lazy but simply they are overrun and forget things We repeatedly had to attract their attention We left after the main course as although we wanted to order desserts we though that the time required would be simply too long. The whole meal would probably have taken over two hours! The pub is very local for me and i would like it to think seriously about the menu "mix"

    After reading through your points, I feel that an email would have been better, rather than giving us a one star review. We have a great selection of dishes to appease the majority of our customers. We're a busy pub and fully booked most weekends. I personally love the ambiance of a busy and bustling pub but I understand that it's not to your liking. Customers who wish to order a burger and a pint are more than welcome as we're a pub, not a fine dining restaurant. I do apologise about the steady service. Occasionally we don't get it right. Two hours for dinner sounds like a wonderful way to spend an evening in my opinion. It seems that we're not what you're looking for in a local pub. However, the majority of our customers do enjoy what we offer and we'll continue to do so, for them!

    Asked for dog free zone but people with dogs came in after we started our meal. Dogs very very noisy and uncontrolled. The noise level was horrendous and intrusive. It was a very special occasion which was thoroughly spoilt. Such a shame as the food was good. Will not book again.
    The Ship InnResponded on 9 April 2024
    I'm sorry that you felt that your special occasion was ruined by dogs. However, we are a dog friendly Cotswold pub. This review is very disappointing to read. It's a shame it doesn't reflect the quality of service and food you received. It's a tad harsh to lower our rating on opentable based on other customers and not your experience of what we offered.

    As usual the meal was delicious, well presented, the staff were attentive but not overwhelming. Extra gravy served as standard, very important (at least to us). All in all I would recommend The Ship
