This was due to be our second stop in Dumfries. But sadly it has closed down. Our first stop, the Riverside Bar, was just up the road and was a decent alternative that is in the current Good Beer Guide.

This looks like a good drinkers bar, bar down one wall and long settle opposite with a few tables and stools. 5 Handpulls operating - 2 Green King Morland beers, Bombardier and more interestingly 2 Stewarts of Edinburgh - 80/- and Pentland IPA. Only one punter in so regretably my beer was first out of the pump so wasn't on best form (I don't think the woman behind the bar would knew about such things.) Hopefully now this is in the Good Beer Guide it will enjoy better fortunes than those described below!!

What a difference two years make. The new 'owner' was a tenant who held out for a year after which the brewer left it in the care of a tenant/manager of one of their other Dumfries pubs. It eventually shut its doors just after Christmas. It has since re-opened in terms of some sort of arrangement between the brewer and a (retired, I think) member of the local licensed trade. Visited on Sunday - moderate (ie not very good) pint; only six customers at 14:20. On that evidence this historic old boozer is Donald D.....

After many years as purveyor of one of the best pints of McEwan's 80/- in Scotland the Ship was sold last year to Belhaven. Anyone thinking of visiting it for the beer should think twice.
