Was a bit disappointed that there was no fish other than a starter of king prawns. The menu says fish of the day, See the specials, then it was only a starter. We weren’t made aware that the upstairs restaurant was closed and our table was in the bar, however we had a nice meal and were made very welcome

Visiting family I booked a table for 4. We arrived a little early and we're promptly seated. The restaurant was busy not much room between tables. I had to ask for the wine list so that we could order, the Pinot was at best mediocre. We waited for 50 minutes from our food order to arrive the steak pie was lovely but both fish dis he's were dry and the steak was dire. The chef offered a new steak which arrived blue and equally inedible when his was returned to the kitchen we felt our whole meal and evening had been spoilt. The manager offered a full refund and apologised we accepted the refund. Needless to say we won't be returning .

A busy bustling pub/restaurant set in the harbour. Sat upstairs so had a great view but were sat by the open kitchen-not for everyone with the heat! Food took a long time to arrive but they were extremely busy, a member of staff did eventually apologise for the wait. An overall good experience. Food was tasty although the chicken special was sparse.

Our group of 7 and dog were made very welcome. The table was spacious and looked out onto the harbour. We could all leave without everyone having to let you past. The food was tasty and they even had a doggie ice cream tub which was a lovely treat. Very clean and vibrant place. I must say the space, location and excellent service made this place.

Staff did what they could but poorly trained especially on the menu. Unfortunately some staff started moving furniture mid service which meant doors pinned open on a chilly night. No regard for customers. Disappointing.

We arranged a visit to the ship as we visited nearly a year ago, when on holiday, and had a lovely meal then and we're not disappointed this time. There was a great choice of food, suitable for all in our partyear. It was well cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and attentive. For once the music was not too loud, which enabled us to have some conversation. It was so good we returned the following day!

Visited many times and always good, BUT dont order adult cumberland ssusage, its
a childs chipolata swirl with little more food than on the childtens plate. Upstairs restaurant is s must and good for kids too with colouring and welcoming attitude but its only open at weekends sadly otherwise you are eating in a noisy bar.

On arrival, we were left standing for several minutes while the waitress typed on her keyboard . She didn't look up to acknowledge us, or apologies for keeping us waiting. Later, I had to go to the bar to ask that our dinner plates be removed. There was no smile on the faces of the staff and we were made to feel a bit of nuisance. Will think twice before visiting again. Sadly.

Slightly annoying as we ate in late night midweek and had great food, good service so we pre booked for Sunday lunch knowing it would be busy for Ironman. Saturday evening we called in on the off chance and ate upstairs with incredible food and excellent service. This only furthered our confidence that we had booked the right place to meet my wives grandparents who had a terrible day for the introduction to Weymouth.
Unfortunately on the day of the booking the table we were at so terribly cold in-between front and back door in constant use. We asked to be seated but the young lady was busy on the epos so asked if we should sit at our table which was in view with my name on it. We had to wait several minutes for a menu as people cleaning and relaying tables for new guests. When we ordered, everything seemed to be fine other than the young lady forget to put grandmothers chicken through the epos so 3 out of 4 came with an apology there would be a wait and an immediate promise it would be left off the bill which was more than a nice gesture. As a Sunday lunch it was quite disappointing. Whether it was the location of the table and the draft the food went cold very quickly, so much so the gravy solidified on the plate and in the jug, the beef was OK and veg underdone, Yorkshire pudding was very crisp but soaked in oil. We did get a check back before the 4th meal came at which time we'd barely eaten so we said it was fine so far, the grandmothers chicken was very pale for roasted. On clearance my Grandfather mentioned the quality wasn't as good as expected as we had high expectations after other meals but nothing was said other than an offer of dessert which I had and it was as good as always. As I went to the epos to beat my grandparents to pay I was given the total and as I was fending off my Grandfather I'm not sure if the dinner that was missed was taken off and nothing said. It was a disappointing end to our holiday after we've experienced so many great meals here.

We had a lovely family meal here Friday 8th September , it was our first time in Weymouth visiting family and we chose the Ship due to its locality to the harbour front. We were not disappointed, on arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our table in the restaurant overlooking the harbour. We chose from the extensive menu , the staff were attentive but not overly so. food was great- portions were on the plentiful side, I can thoroughly recommend the steak and ale pie!! Looking forward to our next visit.

Myself and my boyfriend ate here twice on a bank holiday break in weymouth, once for lunch and then once for evening dinner, on both occasions the service and food was great. If you can get a window seat you have views of the harbour. Lovely place, will be back on our next visit.

Seated upstairs, so not good for elderly Mum who struggled. Decor and ambience great. All dishes good except for my husband's steak, which was very small and dry, not cooked as requested - medium so at £16.90 was definitely not good value. Service was very good and not too long to wait for food once ordered. This venue good for special occasions but a bit too pricey for regular use.

We spent a lovely evening at The Ship Inn, it was a celebratory of 18th birthday meal for my son so we wanted a special evening. We weren't disappointed either, the waiting staff were very helpful and cheerful and the food was spot on too. If you like burgers you'll like this place (bacon and cheese is recommended). Although not the cheapest meal in town, with the ambience and the quirky ship layout it was a winner for us. (All the meals that the people were having around us looked lovely). The barman was a little sarcastic for my my tastes but I think it passed for humour on his part - each to his own!
