About the hotel
Elaine & Gary have undertaken a comprehensive refurbishment of this ancient smugglers haunt and now welcome you to come and enjoy their famous hospitality. Russell Thorndike weaved The Ship Inn (his local) into his now famous Dr Syn novels. The Ship Inn is alive with Dr Syn, smuggling and nautical related art and artifacts.
T The Ship has 2 eating areas in the bar and also a lovely restaurant area where we serve traditional home cooked food. We use fresh local produce where possible. At the bar, we have a choice of three real ales, premium lagers, and a great selection of fine wines. We have Live Music in the Bar on the 1st Friday of each month. Jazz, Blues, Folk. There are 8 comfortable Rooms,6 of which are en-suite and all with flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities. We also offer free Wifi to our customers and guests. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THE HOTEL IS OPEN ON A MONDAY THE BAR AND RESTAURANT IS NOT. THERE ARE PLACES FOR FOOD AND DRINK NEARBY.

accommodaton and Friday meal excellent , pity about food service on Saturday
arriving, were shown to a spacious comfortable room.
Judicious use of spare duvets and blankets ensured a comfortable sleep. Friday evening's meal of fresh fish in excellent batter very good indeed, accompanied by live jazz. Saturday evening was a different matter. Booked on Friday evening for Saturday's steak night and asked for sirloin. Arrived in the bar for a drink at 7.30, on Saturday, moved over to other bar where food was served but there was no reserved table. Eventually established we had ordered steaks, the wine (very good) arrived. half the bottle later no food, then informed at 8.30 there was no sirloin but was rump ok and 'we were next'. by 9pm nothing had arrived the wine was gone, so we left. Not impressed.
The Ship Inn
Warm welcome from a helpful young chap but the room was very cold and, frankly, very tired.
The bed was without a doubt the most lumpy mattress I have ever experienced - you could feel every spring. Booked through LateRooms who show the hotel as 4 star and 4 Green Lights; that is a gross exaggeration. I would suggest that 2* and 2 Green Lights is a much more accurate description and grading
