I visit a lot of pubs, and they vary a lot. Some are good, some are dreadful. On arrival here, I found a genuinely friendly greeting from three of those working there (unusual in itself). The real ale was good and well kept. I ordered a veggie burger, and did not expect much. They tend to be the much of a muchness. This proved an exception, although was arguably not a burger- and that is not a bad thing. It looked good, was very filling, and tasted glorious. The prices were reasonable. Well done the chef with imagination. Shame there are not more of you around. This struck me as a truly local pub in the traditional sense, not one of the modern breed. This is one of those rare ] occasions where I can use the word "excellent".

I find this pub to be genuinely friendly (and NOT in a giveusyermoney type of way). In fact the people in this village were friendly, which is not that common now. The food in The Shiip was very good and very well cooked. , the beer (about five real ales including Dartford Wobbler, Hobgoblin and Broadside. It is housed in an ancient building which is also pleasing. Busy , but not so busy it could not accommodate new visitors. A good atmosphere prevails.
Why this pub has attracted some poor reviews is beyond me. I like a good pub, and this is one. I was part of a large group, and many of us are regularly highly critical of pubs. If we go in a pub and do not like it, we will not return until the management changes. The people make the pub. This pub us pleased us. I hope those running it stay a long time. We shall be visiting again when next in this area.

I have visited this pub twice. Each time it struck me as souless, more restaurant than pub. Each time I was left with a feeling that they are thing they are were interesting in was taking your money. This saddens me. It just does not feel right. It feels nothing like a real country pub to me. And I love a good country pub.
