A favoured haunt from my student days, I was pleased to see that the beer quality at the Ship remains excellent. Also a much brighter interior that the dark and smoky days of old.

Wanted to call in for a pint and had my son with me, a quiet four year old who would have not disturbed anyone but sat in a corner and read a book, around three o clock. We wouldn't have stayed more than half an hour and the pub was quiet. I was told children weren't allowed in! I hadn't come across a ruling like this for an afternoon beer since the 1980s. Bechod. Mae'n tafarn da fel arall, ond ddim i mi.

Excellent clean and tidy pub. It is well known for it's good selection of real ales. There is always a friendly welcome and very popular, especially with the many students in Aberystwyth. Well worth a visit!

We currently live on the high street and the ship and castle is at the end of the road. Nice pub if you enjoy ales but can often be quiet
