My partner and I called in late one afternoon for a late lunch, we were greeted with a smile, and happily served our lunch even though it was moments before the dinnertime menu finished. The food I have to say was top notch, there was a little wait as everything was was cooked fresh. The Irish gentleman that served us...

Before getting on the ferry to Piel Island we asked the cafe (at Roa Island) if the Ship Inn did food. 'No, drinks only' came the response with an unconvincing smirk.

The fish n chips were freshly battered to order. The wrap menu was great loved the Halloumi wrap. The Scooby Snack burger was amazing!! The food was great quality and people...

Outside tables with a view to die for.......boats at their moorings, ships passing by, a whopping great castle AND excellent simple food. We had the shrimps...

We spent a night in the Ship Inn for a well-earned break away from it all. So, what can I say? The room we stayed in (room 3) appeared to be recently refurbished, and done to a very high standard and the bed was sooo comfy and ensured a peaceful nights sleep. The little touches, such as a pebble-lined bathroom...

I stayed at the Ship Inn on Piel Island for three nights over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. Steve, Sheila and their daughters Nicola and Christina are lovely people and made me feel very welcome indeed. The Inn is a lovely old building that has been restored to a good level, with tasteful and appropriate decor. My room was spotlessly...
