Went there for Saturday lunch with sons, family and 2 dogs, one in a puppy pushchair. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, as we had a longish wait and it was pouring down rain. The kids chose from the children's menu and starters, all of which were hot and tasty. The adults ordered the fish special which was plaice... More

Called in for lunch after reading some reviews. Unfortunately they no longer do food. Hey are dog friendly despite a sign on the door saying otherwise. A huge sprawling olde worlde pub which had a good feel and could probably do more. Staff very friendly.

We visited the Old Ship Inn during our recent trip to Bridlington. While the ladies were out shopping, we dropped in for a hand pulled pint and some conversation. The beer was cold and we had an enjoyable afternoon.

I can openly confess I am not a serial reviewer on Trip Advisor but feel I must make an exception for the Old Ship Inn. We went for an evening meal after work and was grabbed by the excellent value for money at two meals for £10. As often is the case with cheap 'pub grub' the quality can leave... More

My partner told someone at the bar that we had booked and was directed to the dining room and told to sit were we wanted and order at the bar. We... More

We popped in off the cuff to get out of the rain, and thought we'd treat ourselves to a bite to eat. I'm soooooo glad we did. Everything about this visit was 10/10. We chose burgers and chips with one tea and one coffee. The bill was around £12.00. The portions were huge. The burgers were like gourmet ones. The... More
