Went in here in December 2015 and found it to be a good locals pub friendly staff and plenty of seating. Unlike the Mayflower which is always rammed with ok ish staff. Will be returning April.

No atmosphere as no people! Trying to hard to be a " Gastro Pub" in a local area. This used to be a great pub but unfortunatly the refurb and the massive hike in prices has kept everyone away.

Went there for the first time after popping over to the Mayflower where it was so full of gangs of men and everyone standing up and no seating. Now, the Ship is so much better:-

1) Cosy
2) Warm
3) Spacious
4) Nice atmosphere
5) Friendly staff
6) Nice historic pictures
7) Relaxing music
8) Quiet, but not dead. It has the feel of a country pub., where you can listen to friends and do your own thing, like read a book, play a game or just chat. Other pubs are so noisy, you can hardly hear your friends think. The music isn't so loud to be a nuisance
9)They promote new soft drinks like hot chocolate with rum and whipped cream, which is really nice for the winter and they serve mulled wine. Clientele tend to be women and couples and mature friends. They don't take credit card, but that is fine, it stops load of yobs coming to the pub and getting smashed. It has a nice civilised atmosphere. It is worth paying a little more to 'get rid of the overdrinking dross!

Dropped in with my mate just after the refurb by the previous landlord. Great transformation and the character still there. Prices remained the same and staff very warm. Not so busy but believe the brewer should not have kept the pub open during the refurb - big mistaken. New landlord, new look now and the heart ripped out the pub - no longer a local but a wannabe gasto? Prices hiked but what about the cheapo tables outside - ugh! Won't be back

The new look is good but what has happened???
Nobody in there, the locals have deserted to a different pub.
Toilets dirty, no music, no heating,no atmosphere!
Went in there Xmas Eve lunchtime 2 people in there, new landlords nowhere to be seen. In the past you couldnt get in the door, it was so busy on Xmas Eve. They need to be on the premises more and make more of an effort.
I hope Youngs see that it needs an experienced pub landlord to run it.
This could be a great pub as nearly all surrounding pubs have closed.
