Upon arrival we were shown to our room which was across the car park in an out building. We were in the downstairs room. The owner was very chatty and welcoming. However the room was a bit run down and quite damp. Having a relaxing sleep in was off the cards as we could hear every footstep that was made...

I was very disappointment with the menu, which did not have a vegetarian option. The only thing they had was on the specials board - a rice and vegetable roast. Being a Sunday, I foolishly assumed that this might be a good option - a vegetarian alternative to a Sunday roast! However, the despite this being a main course, the...

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...
