We arrived early for lunch. Bar staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Recommend the cod and chips - the fish pie was nice enough but personally I found the sauce a little on the thin side. Very generous portion of vegetables. This is good value honest pub food at competitive prices with great service. Beer is Adnams and excellent. Well... More

Pleasant pub on the rustic side. For people who like to walk after their meal it is situated in a lovely position opposite the River Orwell, in a pretty village location and next door to a gorgeous little church. We were a family of five dining and our table was ready when we arrived. Each of us chose a different... More

Our first visit to The Ship but it won't be our last. We had a lovely walk from the pub out along the river and back in time for lunch. Starters arrived promptly but we had a much longer wait for our mains. However when they arrived our meals were very tasty and worth waiting for. A great place to... More

Hubby and I have just had our valentines meal there and it was absolutely gorgeous. The calamari was one of the best we've ever had. We will definitely be recommending it to our friends and certainly be returning. Many Thanks to all the staff for a truly lovely evening.

Turned up to the pub after ringing and the chef had prepared a vegan friendly main which was great!!! Also had two children with us and was offered smaller portions from the main menu. The meal was all freshly prepared and was to a high standard. Will definitely be eating here again, with dogs welcomed a extra bonus!!!!

We visited on a Sunday lunchtime just before it got really busy. We were offered a choice of tables and drinks arrived promptly. The menu choice was good and we didn't have to wait long before our piping hot food arrived. The meals were delicious and a good size too. Desserts were offered and again we were not kept waiting...
