Lovely room with friendly and welcoming staff. We stayed for night with our vallhund the day before a dogshow. Nothing was a bother, able to accommodate a veggie breakfast for myself, and the breakfast spread in itself was more than I expected! The pub itself was busy the night we stayed, we kept getting reassured that it would quieten down...

Spacious clean room (5), and large bathroom. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Only problem was noise from the bar, but that ceased around 10ish. If you want value for money, this is it. Apparently Room 1 is quieter as not directly over the bar. The outside noise from the bar was considerable and the language not always...

I recently attended a wedding in Ripon and spent 3 nights, with some friends, at The Ship Inn. The twin room was very comfortable and pleasant. The en-suite bathroom, whilst not equipped with a bath, did have a very good shower. We went down for breakfast on the first morning and there was a self-service selection of cereals, juices, bread...
