The smell of mulled wine on arrival can only mean one thing, Santa is on his way! Avoid lengthy decision making at the bar, and have everyone mulling from the get go.

From start to finish a fantastic experience. Friendly, responsive staff before the day and wonderful service on the day. 24 people booked in for an annual family Xmas party and The Old Ship will now be our first choice every year. Thank you to all of the staff there, you made the day a real joy!


As always, our Christmas Lunch was handled superbly by the team at The Old Ship. Food delicious, served with a smile and allowances made for the noise our party always makes.


We had our work Christmas Party for 33 people at the Old Ship and had a fantastic time. The staff could not have been more helpful, the food was amazing and it could not have gone any better. I have organised many of our staff Christmas Party's and this has been by far the best. Thank you to all the staff on the night for all your hard work everyone had a great time....


Lovely old building with lots of character. My husband and I had our Christmas day lunch upstairs in the restaurant. The food was very good and the staff were very efficient and friendly. Great atmosphere to celebrate the special day.
