We booked for 18:30. Good parking. Friendly welcome. Stilton and broccoli soup - very good. Lamb and red wine pie with chips and broccoli - excellent. Fish and chips - excellent. Glass of rosé and a pint of bitter. Good friendly service. £50 including tip. Nice walk by the water.

I came here for dinner with my family a couple of weeks ago on a weekday. The dining room is not huge and a reservation in advance is very sensible.

The menu is not extensive but my impression is what they do they do well. I had the smoked haddock risotto and my parents had fish and chips. Both were excellent. The serving staff were cheerful and attentive as well.

The pub does not have a direct sea view but it is only a short walk to the water.

Visited on a Friday evening for dinner, the food here is excellent, a real treat, try the smoked haddock risotto or a real pie. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff welcoming and helpful. Try it!

- right on the Chichester inlet off the beaten track with some lovely walls around the area all leading to a beer at the end of it - lovely relaxed atmosphere in an ideal location

We have visited The Ship a number of times over the past couple of decades - and never been disappointed. Today - we popped in for Sunday lunch after a morning at the beach in West Wittering. Luckily - we booked a table on our way down - because it was very busy.
We found a space in the car-park - apparently also used by people visiting this very nice, picturesque and busy coastal village.
Entering the bar - we were welcomed and shown to our seats - our drinks being brought over by warm, pleasant and friendly staff. The menu had a wide choice - and I was torn between the Ploughmans, Salmon Salad and Fish Pie. The Ploughmans won and I was very please to see how well it was presented - different cheeses, pickles, salad, pork-pie and bread - far from the expected chunk of cheddar with a door-step of bread. It was delicious and so filing that I had no room for desert.
We will certainly visit the next time we go to West Wittering.
A VERY pleasant visit with excellent staff and quick service
