A nice subtle refit yet keeping the village feel to the bar also a new Chef that is producing excellent foods from his kitchen. Service is pleasant and accommodating and willing to please. Good for families with young ones.

There aren't many dining options on a wet lunchtime in Itchenor. The Ship is warm and inviting and generally really busy. However the menu is both expensive and limited. It's the kind of underwhelming experience that made you wish you'd stayed at home.More
