I really don't understand why restaurants charge extra for vegetables. I had hake which was nicely cooked, however, it was served with refried, reheated, new potatoes which looked as if they had been cooked the day before. This was accompanied by Heswall?? samphire. There was a little sauce. On the whole a disappointing plate of mainly fish and potatoes which...

Came here on Easter Sunday for lunch, once again service and food was top notch, all our meals were piping hot, which is a must for me, nothing too much trouble, i.e. Getting a highchair then getting a cushion because my grandson kept slipping down, great place for good customer service and excellent food

My wife and I travelled down from the North East for our friend's wedding. This hotel wasn't far from the venue in Thornton so we decided we'd stop here. The drive up to the hotel is beautiful. The town is really nice with some strange yet beautiful features. The buildings are all old but well-maintained, full of character and no...

This time (a 2 day stay with a colleague) I got a much better impression than on my previous visit - see review. The service from all staff, but particularly the charming young lady who greeted us on arrival and also served breakfast, was great. My room (21) was comfortable and quiet and breakfasts were very tasty (delicious sausages!). The...

Went down for a lovely evening walk with a friend on Monday and felt like a bite to eat. We ended up going in and to my amazement they sound Guinness' Hop House 13! Not many places around the Neston/Heswall area have this on draught so it was instantly a bonus! To begin with we started with the Seafood platter...

The Ship is one of my favourite places to eat. Mother in laws birthday so we decided to treat her. Booked in advance and went with high expectations. Unfortunately on this occasion the service was a little slow, and although two meals were brought we had to chase the third. Recently my wife has noticed that in a couple of...

Stayed overnight on a Friday we all ate late at the local Chinese but where amazed at the staffs agressive attitude to us because we wanted to sit down and have a drink at a table and not stand at the bar! All tables had a reservation notice on them but 50% where unoccupied for many hours apparently on the...

Popped in for an impromptu visit with two children who were 'peckish'. They had a children's starter of cheesy garlic bread each (as a main) and shared a portion of chips. My 8 year old was so impressed he Asked me to put a review on trip advisor! Chips were delicious. I had roast veg and goats cheese ciabatta which...

I was very pleasantly surprised by the Ship. For £47 bed and breakfast I wasn't expecting too much. However, I had a cosy yet comfortable double room, tv with free view, tea/coffee and a lovely en suite bath/shower. The bar/restaurant area is pleasant with a few intimate corners. Candles on the tables and of course views of north wales over...
