“Evening Meal”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We had a meal in the restaurant on Thursday evening, we had been advised to book in advance as we were staying on the island overnight and as March is considered out of season not all establishments remain open.

We were greeted by a very friendly lady who had just started working in the establishment she was extremely polite and efficient.

We had drinks and both enjoyed the fish and chips from the varied menu.

Although out of season the bar and restaurant were busy and the atmosphere was cosy and welcoming. The owner of the establishment also came and asked if everyone was happy.

If on holy island Id recommend The Ship In for lunch or evening meal.

What a superb experience, staying on Holy Island when the causway is closed down and all the tourists have gone back onto the mainland. This experience was enhanced by the owners and staff of the Ship Inn who made us feel part of the local community. They were friendly and informative about the Island without being over attentive. The room was spacious with a comfortable king sized bed and all trappings one would expect from a 4 star double room. The food was well presented and tasty and the Inn had a well stocked bar and was kept clean and tidy. All in all a memorable short break and well recommended.

ive read some negative reviews about this place,,we stayed in room 3 on sat 18th jan 2014, we found our room cozy quiet warm , comfortable bed , tv ,fantastic bathroom, bathrobes and plenty of clean towels on heated radiator..tea and coffee and bisciuts..
our hosts andy and janice could not have been anymore helpful or welcoming ..
our evening meal was beautiful, reviews say its expensive,,we both had starter main and a sweet each..with 2 pints of beer and large whie wine..£63...i dont call that expensive good portions too..
as for breakfast i found no fault with that either, if your coffee pot was empty our hosts only too glad to fill it up..we were both very happy it was a relaxing break and we will be returning to the ship in the summer for a long weekend...

Room Tip: room 3 very nice cozy

Had a lovely but rather wet weekend on Holy Island, we ate on Saturday evening at the ship inn. We were made to feel at home and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Can recommend the steak and ale pie and the lamb shank, delicious food.
Look forward to visiting on our next visit.

I stayed just at the beginning of the year so the island was quiet and the landlords went out of their way to put me up. As it happended four other guests also checked in, so it was not that solitary. The overwhelming property of this extremely comfortable pub was the warm welcome from Andrew and Janice; nothing was too much trouble; they had loads of information on the (beautiful) island and area. The bed was ultra-comfortable, the room (4) was a really cosy haven from a chilly Northumberland January. Breakfast like everything at the Ship was generous and very good quality. I cannot wait to get back

We received a very warm welcome here and the staff were great. The room was quite dull with nonedescript furniture and ambience and was left unlocked and open after it was cleaned. The heating was full on and suffocating and the towel rail so hot I burnt myself quite badly just touching it. The food was average pub food at higher prices, but, in all honesty that's what I expected as it's Holy Island. It does appear that most restaurants on the island offer similar food at similar prices. It's in a good location - central for everything and perfectly pleasant but not a must stay.
