Lovely place but we weren’t fund of the dog sniffing around. Food was fine. A soup and a toast. We decided for coffee elsewhere.

We wouldn’t go anywhere else but here when we visit holy island, the people who run The Ship are great. A warm welcome is given, the food is great and the accommodation is very comfortable. It’s the perfect place to stay to explore the island....More
