My friend and I had dinner here last night. We noticed there was a deal on the steak so both ordered sirloin. We both enjoyed our steaks very much and the service was good with friendly staff. I didn't score a five because I asked for steak to be medium and it was very pink, actually more pink than my...

a pleasant stay in a comfy, but small single room at a very fair price. After a walk to the sea, I returned at 8.10 to find the kitchen closed [I could have checked, but it was a surprise on a bank holiday], so I had to scramble along the high street to find another restaurant. However the bar man...

Spent the night here as a stopover. Restaurant was closed as it was chef's night off so no dinner. Service was friendly in the bar and at breakfast. The rooms, however, are not so good. Single room and the single bed would only fit in one way round, the room was so small. Very hot and couldn't open a window...

Our restaurant visit was spoiled on a very warm day by the temperature in the eating area. I would recommend eating in the bar area which is cooler as long as there is no football match on the T/V screen when it tends to get very noisy and boisterous. Food was good and well presented by attentive, friendly and helpful...

I would just like to say how very disappointed me and my wife were with the Sunday carvery, the meal was so bland and tasteless, the gravy was like coloured water and as runny, vegetables well cant find the words to describe them. 3 slices of meat that was so small, and well, the cheff was amazing because I couldn't...

Very busy place so reservations are advised. The Sunday roast buffet was very good. Parking limited and gets full very quickly. My only complaint would be, not enough staff for a busy Sunday. It seemed quite hectic and a little disorganised with nobody appearing to be in charge. It felt at times quite chaotic. We couldn't fault the food though....

the hotel is old and pleasant, comfortable bar and good selection of beers and pub grub, I had an en suite room, very small, and noisy as it was over a high street bus stop, the shower room was even smaller with the shower head falling off, although clean the room and bath room were tired and for the price...

We visited The Ship on the 24 July for a meal, myself & my partner ordered a carvery & the kids had kids meals. We was told that once the kids meals came out we could make our way up to help ourselves to the carvery. The kids meals came out after approx 15 minutes. So I made my way...

Booked for three nights. On arrival the room was ready but there was only one clean towel, possibly left from the previous occupant. The room was very small and stuffy, the sash window did not stay open without a block of wood to support it. It looked as if the room has been recently refurbished so overall was clean. However...
