Great vegetarian choice and very accommodating for other diets(eg coeliac). Just love this place... And it's dog friendly... Staff always willing to assist without being in your face. What's not to like....

This was our second visit to The Ship Inn and our evening meal was great. The service we experienced also made our evening. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this pub and plan to return to sample the food and atmosphere in the future.
