Went for a brisk walk along the creek and then in for a superb Sunday roast at The Ship. Excellent quality, quantity and service. A lovely country pub with restaurant style food and service.

Second year in a row I've had my birthday lunch here and it delivered again. Special shout out to the veggie welington and the immaculate kid's meal. Great staff and good location. Reasonably priced.
