About The Ship Inn

Dear diners, please be aware that reservations must be made least one day in advance.

Housed within a building dating back to 1654, The Ship Inn in Southampton has been restored to show off its original features, such as the beautiful Inglenook fireplaces and oak beaming. The perfect place for a cosy pub lunch, a special evening meal or a few pints with friends in Redbridge, The Ship Inn has become a fixture in the area and you’ll find it located on Old Redbridge Road. From traditional British classics like the homemade steak and ale pie, to juicy steaks and burgers and other favourites like hunter’s chicken (chicken breast wrapped in bacon topped with bbq sauce and mozzarella cheese served with fresh vegetables and chips) and plenty of veggie-friendly options like spinach and mushroom lasagne, there’s something to suit all tastes and occasions on the menu.

We Visited The Ship Inn for a birthday celebration. It was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were all very hospitable. We all really enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend to our friends and family. A great evening had by one and all. Well done to the staff of The Ship Inn

The staff are always very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The meals are very large, I wish they could serve smaller portions on request, there must be a terrible amount of wastage by the end of each evening. What happens to it all? We have been to the Ship many times for a lovely meal, unfortunately the chips were almost cold this time. Having said all this, we will definitely keep going back!

Great food, friendly staff. Portion could be slightly smaller but great value for money. Not one person on our table finished their meal as it was just too much. Even the puddings are like a main meal. Will definitely be back as lots of choice.

Great food - all made fresh and really tasty. Slightly smaller portions this time than we've had on other visit, but sill bigger than many places! Tried the deserts this time which were great too. Staff friendly and helpful even on a really busy evening.

Lovely food portions sizes rather large but everyone enjoyed their food and staff were very efficient too, music was a little too loud for lunchtime as one of our guests has hearing problems so he found it difficult to hear all the conversation

The meals were excellent, and were served in a timely manner. The pub itself was clean, and the cask ale I ordered appeared to have been well kept. Finally, the staff were friendly and efficient.

Booked table online, when we got there they had no record of it. ☹️ They managed to scrabble around and find a table for us but it was all a bit disjointed. Food and table service was good. Next time I will just give them a ring to book a table.

The food was excellent but the waiting time was excessive. The staff were very understanding and polite. They acknowledged the delay for our table and offered complimentary drinks (which we didn't take up) but the food was worth waiting for.

Absolutely amazing food, great atmosphere and lovely pub. I did book via Quandoo and they put the wrong time in the diary but after showing them my confirmation they found us a table.

Good fast service, very large portions, young and friendly staff with no pressure to vacate when we'd finished eating. The price was in my opinion quite reasonable, and lots of historic atmosphere as the building is I believe listed.

The restaurant didn't receive our booking but did their best to accommodate our group of 12. We waited quite a long time )1hr) for our food but it was good and with huge portions. Deserts were huge too except the apple pie which was normal size!

Took my elderly parents for a meal (I'd eaten at the Ship before, they hadn't) and none of us could fault it - lovely food, large portions and efficient service.
