Met friends for dinner the other evening. Staff were very helpful, friendly and prompt service. I had a pint of 'Sunshine' from Morecambe's Cross Bay Brewery, it was delicious. The Lamb Henry was served up hot and plentiful, that too was delicious. Finished off with chocolate fudge cake and ice cream. Really good. Thanks to all who served us and... More

Visited on new year bank hol with family for lunch. Didn't go with huge expections but hoped for a reasonable pub food standard. Menu states food cooked fresh to order. What a disappointment! Roast of the day was bland and resembled a poor school dinner (the waitress later admitted it was the previous days roast reheated.....). Didn't think it was... More

After calling in a few months previously to have a superb Sunday roast we called in on New Years eve for lunch. We had a mixed starter for one which easily feeds two and was really tasty. The menu is a bit limited but there should be something on there to satisfy everybody. My friend and I both had the... More

Went for a pre Christmas lunch with friends. We all ordered various mains and all enjoyed them. Good quick, efficient service. Friendly staff, yes you again Theresa!! Friendly, informative and fast. Food was good once again. We'll be back. Thanks

We were visiting an elderly relative in a nursing home, and needed somewhere for lunch. In spite of arriving without booking on Christmas Eve, they quickly found us a table. The restaurant was busy but the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent.

Food was terrible and not worth the long wait, beer average. Received a minor discount but that really didn't compensate for a poor disappointing lunch. We were told that the daily special, a roast lamb dish that tasted like cook chill was fresh "yesterday", cold ham was warm, sausages zapped in a fast cooker, puddings poor. Only decent meal was...

After returning to Sandside 4 years after our last visit, we came back to this pub after originally eating here when we first visited and were pleased to see that it hadn't negatively changed at all. Good quality pub food & drink at good prices, something suitable for everyone and is a typical Cumbrian pub with a bit of charm,... More

We were recommended to try the ship inn while visiting Arnside. It more than met our expectations. An excellent meal served by friendly staff at a very reasonable price.
