Place is really given over to food with with most tables laid up with cutlery and wine glasses. Small not particularly comfortable area for non eaters. There is extensive seating outside if the weather is nice although near a very busy road

I am not too sure if this is a pub anymore or a restaurant.

It has one small bar area for wet sales and the rest of the extended building is given over to food. Indeed it advertises itself as 'Mezze' at the Ship & Castle. Mezze is apparently a chain of restaurants operating out of Bristol. It seemed a bit of a soul less place on my visit having long lost many of what would have been interesting features for such an old building.

Nice beer garden, plush soft furnishings, scented tealights, and that's where the good stuff ends.

3 customers in when I entered, none when I left. Seems dedicated to posing and little more. 3.40 for a pint of fizzy Stowford Press cider when the next pub up sells a beautiful draught Thatchers cider for 1.30 less is an indication of why the latter pub was much busier!

And for all the fancy flourishes, the Gents toilet was skanky.

Very pretentious but unfortunately this pub doesn't deliver on quality.

We went for a family get-together on a Saturday lunchtime.

Food was expensive and quite poor. I had a rarebit, which was actually 3 pieces of untoasted french bread with a cheese sauce. I expected something decent for 8! I agree with other reviewers that you would expect a good chef at these prices.

I'm not just a moaner - I don't mind paying the price for good food - but this wasn't!

Stayed here for one night and was really disappointed. Bar area looks great but is way overpriced for what it is. 16-17 for a main course in a pub is absurd. Had a coq au vin which tasted like mango chutney. Was absolutely vile and had to scrape the sauce off the chicken. Wine very expensive, seemed a bit ridiculous to be paying London prices at a pub in a pretty average area. Breakfast in the morning even worse. Particularly didn't enjoy being wolfwhistled whilst I ate my dinner but their own chef.

Would rather sleep in my car than stay here again.
