My wife and I called into 'The Old Ship' for the first time in many years mainly because my feet were sore and I didn't want to risk a Wetherspoons experience a few doors up. We were totally amazed at the transformation that had taken place behind it's familiar frontage. It had had a major re-fit, the staff and regular customers were very jovial and most important of all, the ale was crystal clear and tasted as the brewery intended. We will go back to this pub the next time we visit Dorchester with time on our hands

Went first time a couple of years ago and could not recommend it enough, went again last week, it was looking very tired and a bit grubby much like the bar maid. Had fish and chips, was served on childrens plates, the fish was lovely but the chips were oven chips and very soggy in the middle and burnt on the outside, absolutely disgusting!
