Waterside free house popular with sailing enthusiasts

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Open all year

Surrounded by wooded hills, Noss Mayo lies on the south bank of the tidal Yealm; opposite is Newton Ferrers. The waterside location means you can, if you wish, sail to this deceptively spacious pub, which has been superbly renovated using reclaimed local stone and English oak. Log fires, wooden floors, old bookcases and dozens of local pictures characterise the interior spaces. The cellar keeps a good range of beers, mostly from brewers that know the Ship well. Whether eating in the bar, panelled library or by the river, daily-changing home-made dishes include starters like grilled flat mushroom topped with Welsh rarebit, or chicken liver pâté with red onion marmalade and toast; and mains such as seared scallops with bacon and sautéed potatoes; or oven-baked cod with smoked haddock and saffron chowder. For chicken curry and rice; steak and kidney pie; or ploughman's and baguettes, see the bar menu. Dogs are allowed downstairs.
