It’s always a bit of a challenge feeding hungry teenagers on a budget while travelling. Often pub grub is the best solution as it’s filling and moderately priced. So it was a visit to Shippies at the Shipwright’s Arms Hotel located at Battery Point. It’s a gorgeous heritage building with nautical décor, the food is typical pub fare. Of the four main course ordered, three were well presented and delicious. One of the mains was cold, and I simply couldn’t eat it due to other reasons. I will say this, the staff at Shippies were apologetic, and we were well compensated for the error. Even before this food issue the staff were welcoming and friendly.
