Service friendly and prompt, food poor, served cold and badly presented. Cost more than the overall experience warranted

The Ship at Southfleet sits in the heart of the village and boasts to be a true British country pub serving real ale, good honest pub food. We endeavour to source our ingredients from local farms that surround the village and believe in supporting local businesses and hence use local butchers and micro breweries. Our menu lists pub classics with everything you would expect to see from a traditional pub menu as well as providing an A La carte menu with your choice of sides. Our chefs specials change on a daily basis ensuring the best from our suppliers. With a pub quiz on the first Thursday of the month, live music on the last Saturday of the month and with event nights every Thursday ranging from 'build a burger' through to 'Seafood specials, curry nights and pie nights' 6 real ales. A range of lagers and ciders and a popular selection of wines is a great accompaniment to a great night out at 'The ship at Southfleet'
