Brilliantly run restaurant/ pub serving top notch gastro food. All our party really enjoyed the food including a great mushroom soup, beautifully cooked and seasoned pasta dish and sunday roast! Be careful about booking a cab however. Make sure you are pre booked, otherwise it could be a long wait!

We had a dining room booked for a 40th Birthday Dinner. The room and food were excellent, they catered for 18 of us including children. The staff were very good and efficient and we would definately return.

Location is fab for Brancaster beach, which is just a three minute... More

We popped in here on a Sunday evening around 5.30, the place was practically deserted and we hadn't booked a table. When we asked if there was a table for 2 for a quick dinner the lady behind the bar sort of sighed and had a look around and checked the book. Now I know they may have had reservations... More

We visited Brancaster again after several holidays here. The Ship has always been one of our favourite places for a drink so today we thought we'd pop in and get a drink and have a look what was on the evening meal menu. Me and my wife both ordered a pint of ale each and we were given both the... More

We parked up here to go for a walk down to the beach and on our return had lunch. They do good quality food and service with seating outside with hedging surround. Good sunny day. Recommend the Ship Burger, fish and chips, fish selection. Good real ales on offer.

Thank Woodstag
