called in this morning for breakfast after an excellent experience in a different Sizzling Pub near Plymouth. Had to pay refundable pound for car park to then find a notice on door saying kitchens closed. Went in to get money back and stood at bar listening to the manager harangue his staff for hiding instead of working. This being done... More

The Ship is is a good local pub with a good atmosphere. The staff are friendly and the food is of good standard if not outstanding. They have a variety of activities available including a euchre team, TV screens, quizzes and more. Occasionally at weekends they have live music and or tribute acts, and a good time can generally get... More

The staff are friendly, the beer is good and there is a varied menu. Everybody I go with always has a nice meal, I have tended to opt for a small steak which unfortunately has been quite tough. Nicely presented food and good value for money but shame about the steaks, there is plenty more to choose from though

We ordered our meal at 1-40pm on a Sunday. The place wasn't particularly busy. We were told there was no pork roast and no parsnips but we could have extra potatoes...not ideal but you can never have enough roasties! After 20 minutes a member of staff stalked across to us stuck her hand up and said 'There's no apple sauce!'... More
