The Old Ship is not a pub I had visited before. The entrance up a narrow alley from Mare Street did not look too appealing. But we gave it a try yesterday. The interior is quite appealing. Although it does have the feel more of a gastropub - not quite what I was expecting. The ale range was Dark Star Hophead, Windsor & Eton Windsor Knot & Hammerton N7. Better than I had expected. But not a patch on the Cock Tavern.

Given the competition from the nearby Cock Tavern I was surprised at the boring ale selection as in Otter, Butcombe and Sambrooks. All similar gravities and colour. The Otter was ok but I didn't like Sambrooks but that could be just me, I never have.

Often a strange pong in here. Doesnt seem very clean to me generally. Rooms are pretty good though. Havent risked the food.

Great selection of ales, and really friendly staff. Very contemporary and well kept. I also stayed over night where the rooms were very much the same and well priced.

Service has improved recently and they now have four rotating real ales (the waiter claimed they changed every 48 hours!) rather than the previously unvaried diet of Pride, Timmy Taylor, Deuchars and Doom Bar.

Good food and the best pub by far in the Mare St area.
