Ate at the Ship Inn when I was passing through the area. The patio area was great on a nice sunny afternoon and very relaxed. I would defiantly go here again if I am back in the area.

Great river side location, good selection of drinks and food available in best location in the town. Very pleasant staff. Worth the trip for fresh air, view and to watch crabbing.
