Arrived at 1pm to find the place already busy with what looked to be regular customers. We ordered easily and were quickly served with our food (good selection with all kinds of offers) and it was all top notch. Left a tip, we will return!

We were camping in Caton at a CLDA for the bank holiday weekend, and we went to The Ship for an evening meal. The food was excellent and was by far the best meal out that we have had out for a long time. Would definitely recommend The Ship at Caton.

We wanted a quick lunch on our way to the Lake District and found The Ship just off the M 6. Great welcome and an amazing selection of lunchtime food . We went for a selection of Tapas. First rate.
