Ship Inn Distress
Great food and the staff were fantastic. Very upbeat despite the fact they were going into lockdown again the following day.
We love this pub
Food is excellent
Beer is perfect great selection
Fantastic food, the Sunday Roast was the best, will definitely be going again.
Unexciting food but standard pub food, not 'hone made' but prib dudnt ezpect that anyway. Mind you the cho fudge cake was lush!
Good value ,good food, friendly staff, good surroundings,
Friendly staff, good food, good value, would recommend.
As we are both shielding, we felt very safe with the covid protection measures in place. A perspex screen between tables would have been welcomed.The service was excellent. We both ordered fish & chips
which was enjoyable & one of us had apple crumble afterwards, which was delicious. I was surprised that decaf tea/coffee were unavailable, but there was a good variety of herbal teas to choose from. We will definitely go back again & recommend the pub to friends.
We popped to the Ship Inn Distress on a quiet Thursday afternoon on our way back from the coast with our 2 dogs. The staff were great and gave a lot of attention to the dogs throughout our time there (which they loved) and really looked after us throughout.
The food was lovely and came in good time. I imagine this would be a great place to go to in the summer too as they had a lovely outdoor space.
Polite , friendly staff, good food , good value, highly recommend.
My meal was great however my companion is coeliac.
There turned out to be only one dish on the menu that was gluten-free. Even the soup wasn’t! The waitress appeared never to have heard of gluten free and had to ask the chef. Gluten free is hardly rare these days.
She then had to ask the chef what was the soup of the day.
Our lunch came - but the chips had been forgotten.
My sisters salad had no dressing. She asked for olive oil. The waitress disappeared again (!!) and returned to say that they had no olive oil - only sunflower oil!
The chicken with my sisters salad was dry - overcooked.
So, unsatisfactory. A pity. The new owners have decorated beautifully and it is very close to home. My meal was lovely.
Stater vey poor in taste and size.
Main course fish and chips was a battered frozen pice of non descript fillet which was lacing in both substance and flavour. Deep fried a d presented with a handful of chips and a spoonful of mushy peas and tartar sauce for £12 I would expect a decent fillet of fresh fish freshly cooked, white in colour and flaking away beneath a nice crispy batter. Service wasn't great although asked frequently if we were OK by three different people still couldn't ring a second glass of white wine and instead brought a glass of red which we sent back.
Overall a vey disappointing experience and not intending to go back, would prefer to eat fresh food from other places. Still calk it the ship in disaster.
We have always loved the ship, it now has a new lease of life.
At long last we have a local pub that we can go to without breaking the bank.
Choice good. Quantity ample and service with a smile.
5 minutes from where we was staying in Mudeford this place quickly became our stop off after a day out. They have a lovely beer garden which was great to have a couple of drinks in and relax. Came for an evening meal on our last night and had the mushroom and stilton starter followed by the T bone steak. Both were delicious. Dogs are welcome here there's even a jar of doggy treats at the bar for them. We are back in the area for Christmas and cannot wait to revisit this lovely pub 👍👍👍💕💕💕
Lovely food and nice setting in a really good atmosphere. The staff were pleasant and helpful without being overbearing and the food came in a relaxed and timely manner. Well worth the visit and would come again. Being slightly critical, when paying the bill, the terminal did not provide the option to tip the waiting staff who had been very good. I wasn’t carrying cash and felt awkward that the tipping option wasn’t available. On a second note, the COVID one way system was compromised by a group a cyclists entering in cycling gear and sitting without sanitising in view of staff.
The new decor is very pleasant and airy. Very good service without being over attentive. The food was good and good value. Compliance with Government guidelines for COVID was good without being overbearing.
Nice recently refurbished pub offering tasty pub favorites with a nice socially distanced outside seating area
The staff were very friendly and the pub was Covid safe. A very enjoyable meal.
My new favourite place. Been 5 times in last month. Last night with all the family, sat outside in the evening sun/warmth and had great food and drinks til closing time. Was like being abroad. Nice atmosphere and buzz.
Service friendly and excellent as always. Very busy but no real wait for our food, even though wasn’t bothered as not in any hurry. Great pub food, done well. I am trying a different menu item each visit. Last night was sausage and mash - excellent and very filling. Daughters had steak and Hunters chicken respectively and my wife had steak.
Thoroughly recommend. Nice to have the place back.
A lovely lunch - great to see the place buzzing again!
Food Good. Place clean and good distancing. Welcome disappointing because there was confusion over our booking which they either didn't have or it had been altered for a different time. Waiting staff very pleasant and attentive and our order was taken with minimal delay. However, we had to wait an hour for our food!! We were also given the usual excuses of the kitchen being busy and the meals selected took longer. This was absolute rubbish and n plainly only excuses/lies. The young waitress was b left to deal with the problem without any support from a more senior staff member or manager. We received no explanation nor apology. We won't be back!! In n have also put this on Trip adviser.
Much improved from previous owner, However steak was underdone for a medium rare and meal took 55 mins to arrive.
FORGOT OUR ORDER, WAITED 1.5 HOURS FOR FOOD. WOULDN'T RECOMMEND
Our first time since the refurb,really nice staff, varied menu,perfect for a local evening meal and a few drinks.
We went for drinks in the new beer garden. It was stunning!! We loved how spaced the tables were so you felt safe.
The drinks were very good prices. We will 100% be back
We sat in the garden with our dog. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. We felt very welcome and safe.
First time since its re-opening. Impressed with the refurb overall and the outdoor seating. Booking was easy and all staff very friendly indeed. Good variety on the menu. I ordered fish and chips as i use it to test how good a new pubs food is - was excellent! My wife had the steak and i have to say it was one of the best cooked i have seen in a pub in a long time. Very tender and juicy. Food arrived quickly too.
Nice to have another nice pub in the area and nice to see what was a pretty awful local pub being brought back to life. Will do very well i think.
Lovely surprise. Never been in before. Refurb was nice. Recommend the fried chicken starter with chicken gravy.
Lovely surroundings, clean and efficient, great food and we can walk to and from there !
Our first outing since lockdown! In the garden, sheltered and well spaced out. Some of us (we were 8) got over heated and couldn't get shade. My husbands fish and chips was not generous and not very tasty, chips not brilliant. Grandsons risotto was not very generous either - he was still hungry for dessert - and they were all delicious. Bad traffic meant two of us were 1 1/2 hours late, but we were welcomed nevertheless. A very pleasant time, thank you SID
First time out since lockdown and the guys did a nice job of keeping things distanced. Sat out in the garden/ courtyard and the guys kept us well watered. Nice simple pub food.
Nice atmosphere under the current circumstances, and decor looks good after a recent refurbishment. Food standard pub fare and not too pricey, could do with more vegetarian options otherwise no complaints.
Great location, spacious, clean, attentive staff and good food.
Excellent. Lovely staff who made us feel very welcome.
A lovely smiley welcome on our arrival.
Got eat outside, given a choice of tables. Could have been more Sunny.
The food was excellent, if a little pricey.
Would go back again for sure
Love the garden, lovely staff.
Burger was delicious !
Well done guys
Food was very good, small selection on the children’s menu but not an issue. Good value for money. Very friendly and attentive staff. The whole pub was well set up for the current restrictions.
This was our first visit to this local pub and we will certainly be back! The new landlords have put loads of effort into creating a friendly, clean and modern pub, suitable for the whole family (including dog).
The food was great, the staff were on form and the overall atmosphere was warm.
Without doubt this is our new local.
