A lively estate pub with a single large bar. There were gaming machines, a pool table and large screens showing live sports. There were also some old-style computer game tables, popular with the young children who seemed to have crept in through no fault of the pub's. There was no real ale, the best they had to offer was Doombar in bottles, which was ridiculously over-priced. A decent community asset, good at what it does, but not somewhere I'm likely to revisit.

The Ship is a small over 21s L shaped pub with strange opening times of 15:00 until midnight on Mondays until Thursdays, 15:00 until 1am on Fridays, 11:00 until 1am on Saturdays and midday until midnight on Sundays. Happy hour is from 18:00 until 20:00 on Mondays until Thursdays where the standard draught is available for £2.50 a pint and there is live entertainment advertised for every Saturday night. There is a meat raffle every Sunday and at the rear there is a pool table and two dartboards. Football is advertised and is shown on the three plasma screens located throughout the pub. The bar is stocked with standard draught products alongside Amstel and I didn’t spot any food advertised, although there were some nuts, pickled onions and gherkins laid out for free on the bar during my Saturday afternoon visit. Out the back there is a paved beer garden with a generous smoking shelter and a couple of café tables are situated out the front of the pub.

I thought that this pub was welcoming and although I wouldn’t make a special trip I would pop in again if passing.
