I defy you to drive past and keep going! After a trip to Quarry Bank Mill, we wanted to explore Styal village and was so glad we stumbled across here! Picturesque, super friendly and with an incredible menu we were overwhelmed with such a perfect end to our day!

With road side and beer garden seating, the wine menu is fantastic with some very excellent selections. We didn't get to try the food but I guarantee this won't be our last visit, everyone was so friendly!

There is roadside or off road parking behind the pub and disability access shouldn't be too much of a challenge although corridors can be a little narrow. Full of characterful charm, we can't wait to come back for food!

Don't forget a short stroll through Styal village and the historic homes built for the mill workers.

Having traveled over from Yorkshire to visit the National Trust Quarry Bank, we wanted somewhere for a late lunch prior to our journey home. I used Google maps & this was one of the places that came up & was actually only half a mile or so away & with good reviews so we decided to give it a try. It turned out we made a good choice we only wanted something light which the menu had along with lots of other choices. The welcome was warm, food & beer were good. There are a few tables outside next to the quiet road that were full with people enjoying a drink in the sunshine.

Meet up with a friend for lunch on a Friday two weeks ago. On arrival the car park was full and even though seemed busy at 12.30pm we had no trouble finding a table. The Ship Inn is a cosy and charming inside. The staff were friendly and helpful. After our order was taken at the bar it did seem to take longer than expected to get our sandwiches but then we were in no rush, so more time to catch up with the gossip. The sandwiches were very nice and reasonably priced. I found the pub to be very welcoming and I will definitely visit again.

Went on Friday evening and got seated straight away
The service was very good with plenty of staff
Some good real ales on tap
The food was spot on with two sharing platters had both very good sized portions
Mains were all brilliant and again good portion sizes which left no room for dessert unfortunately
The special of cod and chorizo was superb
