It has potential to be a lovely pub. However we sat in the garden surrounded by rubbish, had to sending our food back and were served by a bunch of underage kids, all of whom seemed to be standing around doing nothing. Shame.

Large car park, Children's area in garden. Unfortunately I found the big steps and modern seating difficult to access and decided not to go again.

Offsetting the cosy dining room, guests can while away summery days at The Ship & Castle's outdoor ice cream parlour. Set close to the beautiful North Somerset countryside and coastline, this family favourite blends gourmet passion with friendly and relaxed pub hospitality.
