We visited the Old Ship Inn during our recent trip to Bridlington. While the ladies were out shopping, we dropped in for a hand pulled pint and some conversation. The beer was cold and we had an enjoyable afternoon.

I can openly confess I am not a serial reviewer on Trip Advisor but feel I must make an exception for the Old Ship Inn. We went for an evening meal after work and was grabbed by the excellent value for money at two meals for £10. As often is the case with cheap 'pub grub' the quality can leave... More

Was visiting Bridlington for the1940's day and chose this pub for Sunday lunch as it had some good reviews. I booked a table and arrived about 10-15 mins early. My partner told someone at the bar that we had booked and was directed to the dining room and told to sit were we wanted and order at the bar. We... More

We popped in off the cuff to get out of the rain, and thought we'd treat ourselves to a bite to eat. I'm soooooo glad we did. Everything about this visit was 10/10. We chose burgers and chips with one tea and one coffee. The bill was around £12.00. The portions were huge. The burgers were like gourmet ones. The... More

Traditional pub in Bridlington's Old Town. Had planned to eat there but food is not served on Monday evenings. However, had a pleasant drink and we were made to feel most welcome by the Landlady and Landlord who made some recommendations of restaurants and arranged a taxi for us. Good service and hospitality.

Both meals were hot, tasty and good sized portions, could not fault at all, especially for the price. The drinks were good too, but I thought they were pricey, being charged £5.35 for a pint of John... More
