We go here every year we're down in Busso. You need to book it on weekend as it fills out. Always a good meal and service. Back next year...

I'm assuming it was the manager..the guy that looks kind of bald...should learn some customer service skills.

We visited the Ship Inn for an early family dinner on a mid-week night. Staff were friendly and while I did have to chase up our drinks order, staff were quick to address the issue in a prompt manner. The meals were ok, adequate portions but I question if we received value for money when compared to the other restaurants... More

We didn't book and were told that we couldn't dine at the Bistro so had to sit at a side table in the pub area to eat. It is a very noisy pub because they have lots of big tables for groups. The chicken burger was good but the Thai salad was just mixed green leaf with a Thai dressing... More

We were n Busselton for ironman so it was very busy. Meals were delicious, my hubby had the steak with prawn sauce and I had pork belly. We really enjoyed it, the service staff were polite and friendly. Would recommend for sure.

I visited two nights in a row but an combining the review. Went with a mate for dinner who was down from Perth on a Friday and Saturday night.
