Description: The Ship Inn is a traditional pub which dates back to the 1500s. It was here that Robert Burns found that his poetry was more than just a hobby and the proprietor Charles Hamilton helped fund Burns first publication. We have been a family run business with a hands on approach to service and customer interaction since 1989. The Pub has a strong food operation which serves traditional pub food to a high standard. Food is made on site by our team of chefs using locally sourced fresh ingredients.

Visited Ship Inn recently with relatives on holiday from Oz. As always the staff were most welcoming and efficient,making my cousins feel very much at home.Traditional scottish food[ cullen skink + haggis ,neeps & tatties] washed down with a nice malt from their extensive range, made it a memorable evening for all present.The antipodeans are now back downunder but still raving about the night they spent at "The Ship".
