Reviewed 6 September 2017 via mobile

A proper Pub with the best welcome so far for our Puggies, they were given treats and cuddles from the staff.
Lot's of choice of specials on the blackboard, plus the standard menu , we both tried the Steak pudding it was a proper pudding full of meat and gravy.So full we could not fit in a dessert! Keep up the good work!

We had a lovely evening with family. The staff were very welcoming and the food was fantastic. Loved the candles in the rest rooms !
Will visit again next time we are visiting Fordingbridge.
Well worth a visit.

Had a few drinks and lovely food at this pub tonight . Food was excellent. Service excellent . We couldn't get a taxi at the end of the night and the staff there sorted out a lift between them. Couldn't have asked for a better night . Highly recommend this place

Visited with family on Boxing Day. There were no other diners throughout our meal. All the food, (scampi x 2, fish and chips and fish pie x 2) were clearly frozen. The fried fish was extremely small and over fried, the scampi was accompanied with about five chips as was the fish and the fish pie was inedible. The sauce was so runny we could have drunk it through a straw. It tasted disgusting. Im not a fussy eater and would usually eat what I'm given even if not keen but I just couldn't.
We complained to the young and obviously inexperienced waiter who took it into chef. The kitchen was only a few feet away and I could see chef through the window. I believe he tasted it. He agreed to deduct them from the bill.
At no point, despite being able to see us through the window, did chef come out to explain himself. Shame on you chef for letting your young waiter take the flak and shame on you for serving up muck. Suggest you go back to chef school.
If you are in the Fordingbridge area avoid at all cost. Go to the Cartwheel or the Bat and Ball instead.
Nb. I am reviewing the food in the pub not the rooms

Located right on the High Street with easy access to restaurants and shops. We dined at The Ship Inn and had a good meal. The room was adequate and the staff very hospitable. The hotel is on a busy junction and the front of the hotel was quite noisy with the passing of heavy trucks. We would stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: Try for a rear room
