Very welcoming staff and good service. We had roast dinners which were lovely although Yorkshire pudding a little on the large size. Good atmosphere and excellent location.

With beautiful views of the Lymington River & a beer garden for sun-drenched dining in summer, The Ship Inn – Lymington is a restored pub & restaurant serving uncomplicated modern British cuisine. With marine-inspired interiors, red-brick walls & roaring log fires, the pub is a cosy hideaway in the colder months.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Ship Inn menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Ship Inn cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Ship Inn Lymington is a 5-minute walk from Lymington Town Rail Station.

    Have eaten here several times now and the problem is inconsistency. Sometimes good, and although last night started well the problems soon set in. An interminable wait for our main courses, which then arrived cool or cold, can only mean that they sat on the pass and were ignored for quite a while. When this place have staff that are electronically linked to the food ordering and service system how can this happen.

    Lovely staff. Felix is a great asset and have experienced same level of friendliness on previous occasions from others. My hamburger was a bit overcooked but my daughter in law loved her duck leg starter.

    We came in on Friday 20th January. The restaurant is very nice and the staff very attentive. The problem was that the prawn starters weren't very nice. We had to leave most of it as some were actually off. However the prices for these were taken off the bill.
    The main meals of cod and double cooked chips was disappointing. The fish was really lovely but the chips although nice and brown were slightly hard in the middle. I wonder if perhaps it would be better to just cook basic chips.
    Overall we enjoyed the service and ambience but the meal was just a bit disappointing.

    The Ship is great. Lovely location by the water at the bottom of the cobbled high street. We ordered off of the fixed price menu which is excellent value. The food was presented well and delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive, however the restaurant was busy and both our starter and main plates were left on the table for quite a while. Overall we had a great experience.

    Good atmosphere and good service with a wide selection of food. However, we booked for 2:30 pm and wanted a dish off the the fixed price menu but they had run out as it was a popular choice. If you are going to have popular dishes on a fixed price menu it would be worth ensuring it was available at all times.

    Perfect- just as we expected having been once before. Excellent choice, quality and value. Fantastic service too.

    Was disappointed in my fish and chips. The fish was small and greyish with little flesh. My wife also had fish and chips. Her fish was
    What I would expect. A good size with nice white flesh. There is a very nice atmosphere and the service is very good albeit a bit slow.
    This is probably because it is very busy.
