"The Blue Ship is a delightful traditional country pub. Simon,Sophie, Graeme and the team offer a warm and friendly welcome and you can tell they care and have a real passion for their customers.  

The food is of an excellent high class at a very reasonable price and you will definately not leave hungry due to the generous portion sizes.  Everything is freshly made with great daily specials available.

A role model for what every country pub should aspire too, cant wait to return."  

Mr Cowell, Kent - August 2013

" This pub is a true country gem, probably the best pub meal out we have ever had! We definitely reccommend the handmade burgers, they are simply amazing! Once you eat at The Blue Ship and experience the warm welcome and excellent service you simply won't want to go to any other pub! We hadn't been to the pub for a few years, it has been transformed in every sense. 10 / 10 "

Mr & Mrs G, West Sussex - March 2014

"Dear Simon and Sophie

Just a line to say a big thank you to you and the team at The Blue Ship for another great night.

I think the curry was even better than last year and of course breakfast was a life saver. At least all the guys got at least a little sleep this year.

We came up smiling with the weather.

See you next year inshalla.

Best wishes."

JJ and the Campers - June 2014

"Just wanted to drop you a message to say what a fantastic time we had this weekend, you have an enviable set up with delicious food and great beer in a perfect setting.

Your family are so friendly and tolerated our 3 young children admirably, even offering advice on a lovely walk down to the river for a few rounds of Pooh Sticks. It was our first camping trip with the children, and other than a few tears about leaving the tyre swing in the field behind, it was an absolute success!

It's refreshing to find such a genuine country pub.

Many thanks, and we'll be back soon!"

Mrs H, West Sussex July 2014

"We just wanted to thank you for your kind hospitality and for making our birthday celebration so special. The food was excellent, the service second to none and the homemade birthday cake was delicious! We couldn't reccommend you highly enough! A must visit pub. Thanks again and we will see you all very soon."

Mr & Mrs S, Surrey August 2014

"It doesn't happen very often, but we were surprised by The Blue Ship. I've always known it was there, yet have never heard enough positive comments to take that road. Now it has a friendly, family-run feel to it, the food is honest and hearty, and the building gives The Blue Ship a charm that few other pubs can match. I loved it."
