The Ship Inn has three distinct dining areas:
- The inside dining room for more formal occasions (seating 30 guests).
- The alfresco area out the front of our Hotel where you can watch the world walk past (seating 56 guests).
- And the classic beergarden for those lazy lunches (seating 60 guests).
We don't have poker machines, we don't have TV's and we don't have TAB. We are a true Gastro Pub with that traditional atmosphere but offer an extensive quality menu ranging from traditional pub meals with a focus on lamb through to our more restaurant style choices and dessert range.

“Great food and location to catch up”
This is a great place to catch up with friends for a drink and meal. It is centrally located and close to public transport. The prices are reasonable (for food and drinks). The meals we had were a great size and tasted delicious. Great atmosphere and wonderful spot for people watching.
