    Made a booking online on Tuesday 23 January 2024, the same day, and after a 30 minute drive we arrived to find it closed - hence my one star rating as we did not experience anything but frustration

    Service and food were brilliant and the Wood Burner added to the ambience on a wet and gloomy day outside.

    We had a lovely cosy family lunch at The Ship. There was lots of choice and the portions were generous, which was appreciated by the four teen boys in our party. We enjoyed the garden too, and its playground - you're never too old to mess around outdoors. Thank you to the team.
