Was told by a member of staff that I could keep my bike in their secure storage for the evening. Upon closing (11pm) was told that I couldn't get it back as the key holder had gone out, and that I'd have to wait till 3am. After much pleading and asking if I could then stay in the pub till... More

It has a really nice mid 20th century feel to it.(minus smokers of course!) as there are two cosy bar rooms to choose from. A very good ale selection plus lovely snacks I recommend the bacon baguette.

The Ship is a real shock to the system for anyone used to the sanitized corporate pubs we've become accustomed to and long may it stay that way !!!! A proper homely pub with Wilton on the floor,brass ornaments adorning the walls,collection of pint pots hanging from the ceilings -exactly as it was 40 years ago. Along with a great... More

Nice little pub that can have an atmosphere with only a few people. People normally go there for the beer that must be the cheapest in the area. They even had mild at £2 something a pint. They do fairly basic food ( they do no serve brown bread ). We cannot comment on the hot food but prices looked... More

The public bar entrance is wheelchair accessible. Full of real characters, nautical memorabilia and with a tremendous atmosphere. Very crowded most lunchtimes, until about 1.30, and early evenings from c 5-6.30. I... More

Not really spit and sawdust, but the nearest you could get in a very traditional pub. Its my local full of sea-related memorabilia, and people to match - no other pub comes up to this mark for miles - great value food is lunchtimes only, not sun, well worth a visit for real locals and great cider!

I have used this place for many years. It is a traditional pub filled with naval bric-a-brac, and often crammed. It can be noisy then. The staff are shall we say, old school, the place is crammed with character, just on the edge of a village shopping centre, and not far from either the station of the cricket green. Its... More
