Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ship Inn

A very striking pub, with the splendid nut-brown Tomlinsons tiling looking a picture on a fine sunny day. Less sure about the modernised interior, though, but this is well done it its own way. Not sure what the Artisan Tap branding means, but Landlord, Abbeydale Absolution, Henry Smith Session IPA (£3.05) and Swoon Chocolate Fudge Milk Stout available were found on handpump when we visited.

In the mottled sunshine of a Saturday lunchtime this really is a good looking pub and the superb Tomlinsons Anchor Ales tiled exterior almost glints in the sunlight. The transformation internally to something more resembling a student bar has been well documented below and I won’t repeat any of that except to concur that the striking blue curtains do actually add to the overall effect.
Six ales were on for my visit and alongside TT Landlord there were Best Bitter and Session IPA from the Henry Smith Brewery, Sheffield Brewery New Dawn, Revolutions Brewing Co. Swoon and Abbeydale Absolution.
It was quite quiet for my visit except for a steady flow of groups of guys I assumed were also on the start of the Kelham Island crawl, (something substantiated later when I kept bumping into them in other pubs ) who seemed to favour the secluded section at the far end of the bar so I took my half of New Dawn to one of the studded banquettes in the deserted main section and started reading the information mag for the forthcoming Sheffield Fringe that I found on one of the tables. This was actually such a good read that I decided to delay my departure for another half , this time of the Chocolate fudge milk stout from Revolutions which was a lovely stout.
And I am not sure if the young barmaid was the same one as mentioned by Will below but she was really friendly and efficient to such a level to be an absolute credit to her profession.

Seemingly now under different ownership or management from my previous review, and the policy now includes curtains, or blinds, so the place looks a little less stark than previously. There are eight hand pumps on the bar, but only four beers at the time of my Tuesday night visit. There are more real ales on at weekends. The young woman who served me was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was congenial, if a little loud at times - but after the noisy group of students had left it reverted to being pleasant. My half of Henry Smith Best Bitter was in good condition - this is a new brewery for me and on a subsequent visit I also had their Dark Mild; both were easy drinking and well presented. Worth a look in if doing the Kelham Island pubs, though expect this one to vary between busy and loud, and the opposite, depending on the time of day or week.
