This restaurent was very good and although not busy the staff and service was excellent. We both had fish and this was well presents and seemed very fresh I recommend this restaurent
Excellent experience all round. This venue was recommended to us by a friend, and it did not disappoint. Good value, including the wine, although be warned, it is a very fish oriented menu!
We received a very friendly welcome and as lovers of a good Sunday Lunch I am delighted to report that we were not disappointed. The portions were generous and beautifully cooked. We'll be back.
Food was really good and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. We had our dog with us, so great that The Ship in Distress is a dog friendly place
The venue was lovely, the food excellent but we had to wait over an hour for our food and drinks and as we had 2 children with us who were hungry and thirsty it seemed a very long time. There was confusion with the orders too. When we changed our waiter the service improved and as I said the food was very good indeed. we will go there again.
Excellent fish at very reasonable prices. As good as food at pebble beach but not quite as plush surroundings. Would definitely recommend this pub restaurant. Staff very friendly and good service.
Best fillet steak in Christchurch. This is our 5th visit and it is always excellent. Nice service and reasonable prices.Relaxed and friendly pub with character and personality.
