Dine in our restaurant at The Ship Inn.

Our Restaurant

The Ship Inn has three distinct dining areas:

  1. The inside dining room for more formal occasions (seating 30 guests).
  2. The alfresco area out the front of our Hotel where you can watch the world walk past (seating 56 guests).
  3. And the classic beergarden for those lazy lunches (seating 60 guests).

We don't have poker machines, we don't have TV's and we don't have TAB. We are a true Gastro Pub with that traditional atmosphere but offer an extensive quality menu ranging from traditional pub meals with a focus on lamb through to our more restaurant style choices and dessert range.

This is a great place to catch up with friends for a drink and meal. It is centrally located and close to public transport. The prices are reasonable (for food and drinks). The meals we had were a great size and tasted delicious. Great atmosphere and wonderful spot for people watching.
