After viewing a property on St Mary's Island, decided to have lunch at the Ship and Trades. It was unlockdown day but they still had covid measures in place customers and some staff didnt have masks and everyone seemed ok with it. Shown to a table which was near a door and the door was open which was great as it was very hot. Quite a few customers food coming out looked good. Drinks received food ordered had a 20 minute wait. My wife ordered beer battered cod with fries and peas. She said it was ok, batter was crispy, the cod was not bright white and only had small flakes. 3/5. I ordered the Poke Bowl with pan fried chicken (in my opinion the chicken was pre cooked then ripped in pieces then pan fried to give extra colour) the chicken was stringy and dry. Pickled red cabbage tasty but was not crunchy, sesame seaweed moist and tasty, kale tough and not nice (should only be used in smoothies), radish, avocado, carrots next to worst of the bunch large thick strips not sweet and orange , tenderstem broccoli good and fresh, roasted butternut squash bland, toasted pumpkin seeds, warm basmati rice big warm lump not seperated , topped with a teriyaki & wasabi dressing bit of warmth from the wasabi, the dish could of done with more sauce.2.5/5. Decided to not have desert will be back in the near future. Service was very good very professional. 4/5.

We went to meet a relative who was over from USA. We were shown to our table. All very Covid safe. The selection of food isn’t massive but if you have more choice then the harder it is to pick something. We all had a starter which was really nice. The prawns were tasty as was the chicken satay. For main we had steaks, fish These meals were very well prepared presented and hot. The waitress staff were excellent. Nothing seemed too much hassle for them. Had a lovely pudding too. Was a very nice meal with the family. Will be going back

Had a lovely stay away following a meal at The Pumproom. The room was lovely and well kept. Coffee making items and toiletries were delivered on request having been sanitised. Breakfast was just the ticket and the view across the marina was nice in the sun. The hallways are slightly tired but rooms and restaurant top notch for price bracket.
