Had a lovely roast dinner with our friends in The Ship. The standard of the food and service is well worth a visit and everyone at the table agreed it was the best Sunday dinner tasted on the Wirral. Have three choices of meat - lamb, pork and beef and if you can't decide you can have a trio of...

4 of us visited for Sunday Roast. What can we say? First class service, good drinks, reasonable prices, but the food was truly scrumptious. In my opinion the best pub roast dinner on the wirral. Home cooked roasties, choice of 3 meats, generous portions and an amazing Yorkshire pudding! Will definitely be back and would definitely recommend!

After several very good visits in the past few months, and again yesterday evening, I would like to congratulate the Management on your establishment's excellent food, fair prices and great surroundings. We have family staying soon and are looking forward to taking them to The Ship. Keep up the good work!

We were made to feel at home as soon as we entered the establishment, the staff were friendly, polite and very professional in their approach. Service was unhurried and allowed us to pace our meal in a leisurely manner. The range of dishes on the menu was excellent with a focus on providing a suitable dish for any taste without...

Had a lovey meal out with family at the Ship on Friday night. Good choice of food and very helpful staff. Wine list prices about average for the area. The only downside is that it does get very noisy and the eating area is next to the bar area which can make it difficult to hold conversations across a table....

Had lunch at The Ship on Friday. Menu was a bit different from normal fare and the food was excellent and beautifically presented. Price was good for the meal. Nice touch - if you get a window seat (gale blowing outside) they provide binoculars to observe the estuary and wildlife across to Wales.

A chance visit to the Ship Inn resulted in an meal chosen from a varied menu which was cooked to perfection and was well presented. Staff provided both a pleasant welcome and helpful service. The atmosphere provided by local people and visitors to the area in addition to the position looking on the marsh was a further bonus. Parkgate is...

I have visited this pub for a drink previously but had not tried the food there. Booking is essential as it was really busy and always a good sign of a popular place. The menu is excellent as it uses a lot of locally sourced products and very fresh. Service was very good and our servers very helpful. I can...
