I had booked an evening meal at The Ship Inn, after recommendations from a couple of neighbours. My husband and I, had previously visited the Ship for a drink a few years ago after just moving to Tenbury Wells. It was New Years Eve, and we then found the atmosphere to be lack-lustre, and the service poor, but it was...

We booked a table at the Ship Inn for a quiet double celebration. We booked here because we know this restaurant, have been several times previously and found the food to be fabulous, well prepared and presented, and honest generous portions of piping hot food. Again we were not disappointed, the food was stunning. Thank you very much. We will...

Very good food. Room and ensuite not huge but comfortable and a good standard at a sensible price. Good beer and local cider. Staff and owner very attentive at all times including breakfast. The manager, Jane, and bar colleague couldn't have tried harder to make us feel welcome. Parking behind hotel was tricky to find but was a good initiative...

We went for a short break of one night. The reviews we had seen were mixed but we thought we would try in anyway. We will not be gong back. On arrival we parked up and took our luggage up to the room. At first glance it seemed OK but it was cold. The person who met us had said...

If you're in the Tenbury area of Worcestershire and want a sandwich, try The Ship. The restaurant has a full menu of excellent food but we usually require just a sandwich. For less than £6, try the beef. It's a generous amount of locally produced beef on fresh granary bed and served with chips with coleslaw and a salad with...

Travelling around the area. My friends from the United States were getting a little peckish stopping in Tenbury. We found the Ship open and still serving food. The town is really nice and the nr by countryside is unique. We found the Ship in reasonable nice feel to it. The food was of a good standard and not over expensive....

Three of us had lunch here one Monday in July, the food was excellent, as usual, and service was efficient and with a smile! The dining area is lovely, always clean and tidy and the menu is varied with something to suit all tastes and pockets. I'm planning to try their pre theatre offer when I next visit the Regal...

we hadn't booked a room here but just fancied a drink, saw how popular the restaurant was and decided to stay the night, very reasonably priced at £75 b&b.
