Visited on the 24th Oct for my grandaughter's birthday. There was 8 of us and we had booked a table but no table had been reserved for us. Ordered meals at bar and we guessed we would have to wait awhile as it was busy. When food was brought only 7 meals arrived so one of us had to wait for their meal which was unfortunate as the rest of us had almost finished ours by the time it came. Thank God it wasnt the birthday girl. I had the crispy chicken which was OK but i wouldnt have it again. 4 of the others had different curries which looked delicious. All in all for the price it was OK and i would go again.

A very nice restaurant with a warming atmosphere, not crowded and is perfect for a dinner out with the family. Menu is affordable and the food is exceptional! I would like to highlight Josh who was the waiter that served us on the night. He made us feel extremely welcome upon entering The Ship. Very polite and professional when taking on his role and eager to make us feel comfortable. Josh came back and forth to our table throughout the night to make sure we had everything we needed and were satisfied with the meals. Other than Josh being an invaluable asset to the restraunt, the food quality, the cost of meals and the atmosphere were all excellent. I would definitely recommend The Ship to anyone and will be visiting again!!
