We went here as a walking group and after a gentle stroll along the beautiful River Nene we turned up ready for a welcome lunch. It was super. Very well presented and extremely tasty. I had Sausage and mash which was just fantastic. Others had the fish and chips which they said was really very good. The beer was also...

Informal local pub. Beer was ok, and I'm told the goulash was very tasty. However, the food was a bit badic -admittedly my burger was quite well cooked but they got the order incorrect (fries and bun instead of salad), and when the salad did finally arrive it consisted of a bit of lettuce and roughly chopped tomatoes shoved in...

Most of the party had the Sunday roast which was excellent - followed by appropriate puddings which were equally good. Service very good. Overall cost including drinks was £17 each. The location in the centre of the town plus their own car park was very good

I enjoyed an evening meal at The Ship last night. The steak pie was good quality and we had a very nice, quiet table. Waitress service taking orders and bringing the bill to the tables was more than we expected in a pub.

We had prebooked our double bed room without seeing the property. upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to see it was a beautiful old building with a comfy pub up front. Our room was in an extension behind the original buiding. It was small but had two windows, comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom which appeared to be a...

Stayed here while I was attending a wedding in Oundle. Such a lovely little place. I was expecting rooms above a pub but was very surprised to see that their accommodation was little cottages. A very clean and bright room. Bed was so comfy I had a great nights sleep. Lovely big bath and nice shower and great tv too....

Have been to The Ship a few times for drinks and couple of times for meals. Really, I'd like to give it a 3+ or 3.5; it's better than average, but I can't quite put it in the very good column. As a "local" free house, it's quite good, all that you'd expect from an English pub. A nice variety...

Last year I ate at the Ship on 3 occasions inside 5 days. No complaints at all. On July 25th I was back in Oundle on business so naturally I, along with 3 colleagues went for evening meal. I had steak ale pie, the crust was more like a biscuit, tried to cut and it flew all over. My business...

Stayed for one night at the ship inn Great value for money and a good atmosphere across the whole place As it is a pub it was a little loud still at 11.30pm when we wanted to sleep due to the outdoor area being very close to the rooms in the courtyard but overall did all we asked.

The staff did a great job of catering for our walking group. As always, the service was spot on, and the beer choice excellent. All around me ,the meals were being eagerly enjoyed . I was unlucky in choosing the battered haddock, which was suspiciously discoloured and tasteless under the batter; but I was too hungry to complain ! That...
