Dropped in enroute for lunch, sat outside @ picnic tables. Great selection of local real ales, the crab sandwiches are so fresh and the kipper pate with toast, both are a must. Really good laid back hostelry.

Dog friendly pub with an excellent menu and good beer. The service was pretty good but unfortunately they were fully booked for dinner - for the next 3 nights! Anyway we enjoyed our short visit in this delightful pub - well worth a visit

This is a delightful little pub, to be found in a small bay overlooking a sandy beach. I have been staying nearby and it has been well worth the 10 minute stroll to the coast. A brisk walk along the sandy beach and back is...More

This is not the first time I have been to the Ship Inn. I could not rate it high enough last time I was there. This time? We could not get a table until late and we had to wait for about half an hour...More
