Malden man left this review about The Ship Inn

A striking exterior with fine well preserved tiling including a frieze of a ship over the door and the former Tomlinson's Brewery name running along the front, a rear whitewashed piece at the back may be an extension albeit from some time ago. Inside there is a L-shaped space with the bar in the crook, the front area has rugs on the floor, different coloured wooden slats cladding the chimney breast, button backed banquettes, small bottles containing daffodils on the tables and a small low table fashioned from a small wheeled trailer. A DJ mixing desk suggests the pub gets livelier in the evenings.
The other side has a walk through "door" all painted in almost electric blue, looks like an old chimney/fireplace, this leads to a rather secluded bit of seating at the far end where there is a horseshoe banquette around a single table. Window blinds were similarly coloured. The toilets are through here too, of note on the way is an upright clock (Grandmother?) with a Ward's Brewery face. Past evidence of this brewery were to feature throughout our Sheffield visit, they must have held a huge number of pubs.
Beers were Kelham Island Pale Rider and Kelham Best, Bank's Sunbeam, Bradfield Farmer's Stout, Landlord, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Moonstone Pale Ale reversed and one not clipped.
Easily visible from the tram stop across the busy roundabout, a good start to a Kelham Island crawl.

A very nice pub and though its a bit wine barish its decent nonetheless. There were 4 handpumps with Chantry New York Pale, Poachers Imp Ale, Old Golden Hen and Front Row Pause on today.

What a transformation. From the outside, nothing much has changed. It's great to see that the old brown tiling has been retained. Much more open and bright inside now, with a large bottle store at the rear. A much fuller desription from Will is below. Now giving a 20p per pint CAMRA discount. In a way, it's a shame to see the old Ship go, but it was beginning to fail. It should have a whole new lease of life now.

This pub has some excellent tiling on the outside. Inside it's been opened up with a small seating area to the left as you enter, further seating straight ahead and a pool room at the rear. We didn't mind the 80's music at all. It was mainly Sheffield bands as well. There were a friendly bunch of regulars eating in the main room, obviously from a local office. 3 handpumps on the bar serving changing guests and my pint of Kelham Island One Step Beyond was in good nick. It's not a "must do" pub around here, but it's well worth calling in for one whilst on a crawl around the area as we were.
