    We had a lovely Sunday roast here last Sunday and it was delicious. We booked again last night for our last night of our holiday. My friend and I ordered the monkfish specials and our husbands had the burgers. The fish was overcooked and not a lot of fish in the portion. It was very disappointing. When I was asked how the meal was I said that the fish was overcooked. The waitress apologised but we were not offered any adjustment to our bill for the disappointment. Very sad considering how good the food was last time and we were recommended the restaurant for its great food.

    We had a stunning meal. I started of the pate followed by the fish and chips. The chips were thick cut triple cooked and were very good. The fish was cooked to perfection and it was a large piece of fish with the home made tartar sauce My wife had the goats cheese salad and followed by a homemade apple pie with Calvados custard. Avery enjoyable meal in great surroundings.

    Dining room very stark and unwelcoming as the floor was still wet from cleaner. Would have preferred option to dine in Cabin Bar. Good friendly service Food fairly average but Crab Soup delicious but had to ask for another slice of bread as one slice is not enough. Bread was quite stale. The main bar in this pub is lovely and welcoming with open fire

    Went here for a Sunday Roast and it was amazing! Best pub roast I’ve had in forever! Would totally recommend getting the share platter to match. Hosts were really friendly, chatty and welcoming. We felt very comfortable and left very well fed. Thank you

    We booked in for Sunday lunch which is served until 9pm which is really good. We had the roast beef and the lamb with roast and mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire pudding and ordered sides of cauliflower cheese and pigs in blankets. The food was amazing .

    Food is excellent since the pub was taken over some time ago, it used to be mediocre to put it kindly. Good range of real ales, all very well kept, & the main bar is, & always has been, an absolute delight. Every possible part of the walls, shelves & ceiling is crammed with ship, fishing & general sea-faring memorabilia. It must be a nightmare to keep clean, but it always sparkles. The staff are friendly & helpful, & the ambience is so good that it is not surprising how popular the place is. Not to be missed if you happen to be in Seahouses, but pre-booking is highly recommended, especially weekends. Just a fantastic place to eat or drink !

    Had a wonderful stay at The Olde Ship Inn. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant and the service was fantastic. Breakfast was also perfect every morning ( the dog even had a sausage - which he loved!! Nice little touch) and the staff were very friendly and welcoming . We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to family and friends. Can’t wait to come back and visit . Thank you .

    Very disappointed with our Sunday Lunch. We waited about 45 minutes for it. My partner had the belly pork and it was tough. Portiion size too small. We were hungry afterwards. Expensive at £18 each.
