Such good fresh fish lunch on a cold crisp December day by the fire place in the restaurant. Very friendly staff, best recommendation! We had a filet of hake with lemon butter and fish and chips

We walked along the coastal path with a stop here for refreshments. Staff and locals very friendly and welcoming to us and our dog. Beer was perfect and although we didn't eat this time, the menus looked tempting. Could have stayed longer but given how well the beer was keep, it's probably a good thing we had to return before...

Stopped of here after a walk along the shore in bracing weather. Did not have a meal but sampled a couple of pints of bitter. An interesting range of local beers and very good service

This place delivered much more than one would have expected. We happened to go on 'locals' night' - hence lower prices than usual. What we thought would have been a standard pub meal was in fact an excellent offering. Slow cooked shin of beef on horseradish mash was of outstanding quality! Complemented with friendly staff and good service, it made... More

We went to the Ship Inn breaking up our long walk from East Wittering, via West Wittering, via Itchenor to Chichester Habour (well worth it!) and had lunch. The Dover Soles was excellent, so was the Fish and Chips. Honest, good food. We took our grand children and when they did not finish their food, everyone was very kind and... More

What a great way to finish a long walk around the itchenor marshlands - a pint and a ham hock with fried egg sandwich in the front garden of the Ship. We wanted something quick but the food looked good. We were lucky, the morning fog had gone and the sun had come out. It is half term so lots... More

The Ship Inn is near the boat yard in Itchenor. They have a bar and large comfortable dinning room. Lunch and the selection of Ales was well deserved after walking from West Wittering. Food was delicious and not jus the usual pub selection.

We have eaten here on many occasions and never been disappointed. We pre arranged for our walking group to meet here then return for lunch. The pub was open when we arrived at about 9 and our lunch orders were taken. Coffees were available. We returned at about 12.30. The table for 20 was reserved. Everyone complimented on the food...

We have visited the Ship many times and have always found the staff friendly and the food good. It's location means it has a captive audience which is not taken for granted. We recently visited with some friends and ate in the bar rather than the restaurant. We ordered baguettes. The staff recommendations were good and the food excellent value... More
