Steve C left this review about The Ship Inn

This is a large food orientated pub that I thought a little sterile during my evening midweek visit last week. It was pretty busy compared to the other pubs in the area, but most people were dining and there was a queue at the hot beverage counter whilst the bar was empty apart from two gentlemen sitting at it who were annoyingly blocking the view to the hand pumps. After a few head bobs and some funny looks I gleaned that Harveys Best, Flowers Original and Beachy Head Original were the ale options alongside some standard and premium draught products. The Guinness was well served and the barmaid was nice enough, but with an air of ‘I’d rather not be here’. The main front section of the pub is square and split up with pillars and chimney breast and there is a small extension at the rear which leads to a large beer garden complete with BBQ counter on a decked area at the immediate rear. There are no TVs in the pub and some generic background music was playing softly in the background.

This is a pub for families and other folk that don’t do boozers, which is fair enough I suppose – I cannot see a return visit.
