A comfortable pub with a good atmosphere. The locals are friendly and the landlady and staff were very welcoming. Good parking available and bus stop almost outside of the door. I am pleased to say you get what it purports to be an unspoilt pub.

Hi Joanne. Sorry I can't answer that one as I don't use pubs. However, if you go on line & look up the Ship Inn I'm sure your find details there.
