Maz and her team at the Ship Inn were absolutely fantastic in making our wedding day so thoroughly enjoyable to us and our guests! The flexibility, location and value for money this venue offered us was unmatched by any other venue we looked at. We were able to throw a wedding extravaganza and The Ship Inn was able to make this come to life without any issues, working for many hours and flipping the room for us in a very timely manner. The food was fantastic, the staff on the day flawless and we had so many compliments from our guests about this venue. 100% recommend this venue to anybody! Thank you Ship Inn!

The venue was great value for money. The staff were easy to talk to and very helpful with both the planning event and on the day of the wedding. The food is absolutely delicious and well portioned. The venue is surrounded by lots of places for photo opportunities, which made is easy for us on the day and helped us to get back to our reception faster.
