Good pub food. Prices are a little steep but you are paying for location. Great atmosphere in the bar area.

We have been to The Ship on several occasions but our last visit was definitely the final time. The food was undercooked and portions small and although we were offered free desserts, my husband had to have his main course reheated while mine was re-cooked. This took over 20 minutes ! Three other gentlemen had to leave and taker their lunch with them in a bag as they could not wait any longer. It is such a shame that standards have dropped as this used to be such a good pub/restaurant. The prices have also increased and no longer represent value for money.

We were very hesitant having read other reviews but we were out walking for the day and it was the only place to eat in the area so we set off. When we got to West Ichenor the locals were playing the Harbour Conservancy at rounders by the slipway so we asked them about the Ship and got an encouraging response. We were very warmly welcomed by the "Des Lynam" lookalike landlord and by all the staff who couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The place was quite busy given it was a midweek lunchtime. The food was good - this is not a Michelin restaurant but it was excellent pub grub and just what we wanted. It was served in good time, was piping hot and the portions are huge - you will be going some to manage a dessert (but we forced ourselves!) Altogether a great lunch stop before the exertions of our return walk to Chichester Marina.

We had lunch at this pub, which is situated near the Chichester estuary.

The fare was unfussy pub grub, just as a pub should provide. There was a choice of various catches of the day, so seafood was a speciality.

We had the seafood salad and the belly pork. The food was good and well cooked, and there was a lot of it. The plates were more like troughs! If one is picky there was so much on the plate that separating the constituents was difficult, so so tastes blended.

The food, like the wine, was fairly priced with some decent bottles. Coffee too was good.

Well worth a try.
