We ate here on business. The pub is in a great location but the food was awful. It's a shame as the location is great. We would drink here again on a sunny day but never eat here again.

After spending the day on the beach at west wittering we decided to call in The Ship. Our son knew of its reputation. The food and service was excellent. The mixed seafood platter was a great success. The Dover sole was equally good.
