“A crowd of us ate at the Ship Inn today, food was...”

Written on: 19/02/2011

A crowd of us ate at the Ship Inn today, food was good, however there was a big delay in us getting food at the same time (although we did order separately).
We were absolutely disgusted by the attitude of one of the staff members working behind the bar who kept insisting that the door be kept open as the staff were hot, even though all of the customers were cold. I thought that the customer was always right... Not the case at this pub!
Quite disappointing as we were going to go back there for… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/12/2010 by fishandchips (1 review written)

We ordered 2 fish and chips with as the menu said "chefs own mussey peas".
The girl behind the bar told me there was no mussey peas.
I asked for normal peas these were not available either
They offered bread and butter instead.
After about 5 mins the waitress came to our table to tell us there was only 1 fish avalaible !!!

We had now drunk about 2 glasses of wine from our bottle if i knew this when i ordered the food I would have walked out and gone in the fish and chip shop over the road.

Written on: 28/08/2010 by MDS999 (1 review written)

As a party of six attending an evening dinner service on August 24, 2010, at the Ship Inn in the centre of Swanage, we experienced the following:

A main course arrived cold, the mashed pot was cold and a bit lumpy and the liver was also served cold.

We requested if the dish could be heated slightly and this was actioned by one of the staff, after circa five minutes the plate was returned piping hot after being in the microwave for far to long and was inedible.

This was also commented upon… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2010

Booked a meal for 22 dive club members, aged from 1 to 60 on Saturday the 29th May. All seated together if a bit cramped. All meals pre ordered and as soon as everyone seated service began. Service excellent, friendly and efficient throughout. Food was exactly what people ordered and can honestly state no complaints heard. Comments ranged from superb to very good. My starter, sweet chilli prawns with bread and olive oil dip was fantastic, mains of lamb hock melted from the bone and steaks done… Read Full Review

Had a simple but tasty meal which was value for money. The staff are helpful, approachable and friendly. Would go again. Avoid eating later in the evening at weekends, if you want a quiet night as can get quite busy… Read Full Review
