2 for 1 at The Ship Inn

The Ship Inn is situated on Stock Road in West Hanningfield, Chelmsford, and is a warm and friendly public house that offers diners a wide range of food and drinks in a homely, laid back atmosphere. The talented kitchen team here truly believe each dish, no matter how big or small, should be made and presented with the same amount of care and attention. Whether you are visiting to enjoy a simple jacket potato or a delicately seasoned sea bass dish, you can be assured that the time and effort put into both dishes will shine through.

Dishes on their extensive menu include a range of starters, like pancetta wrapped scallops, served with a simple side salad, or tasty brie stuffed mushrooms, served with brie and smoked pancetta. Main courses offer a range of British and Italian themed dishes, like sausages and mash, sea bass with new potatoes, hearty lasagne and delicious beef burgers. Vegetarians are also catered to, with a lovely beetroot and pea risotto, a filling Spanish omelette or their vegetarian burger.

Whatever you go for disappointment is not an option. The helpful and attentive service received at The Ship Inn only adds to your experience, and you encouraged to speak up if you have any questions or queries. Ideal for a family meal out, or an after work wind-down, The Ship Inn should be first choice when dining in West Hanningfield.

    Me and my husband were very happy with our food. It was really hot which is lovely.
    I had steak and the duck fat chips which were delicious. My husband had ribs which were huge and even beat him! Haha

    Really lovely food will defiantly come back. "

    " We arrived after 1pm and hadn't booked but the woman behind the bar agreed to our booking a table for 5 minutes time! We had 3 fabulous courses. The bread with the excellent homemade slightly spicy sweet potato and coriander soup was crunchy from the oven. Then I had a meaty pie with a variety of fresh vegetables cooked to perfection. The portions are plentiful but the food was so delicious we shared a wonderful dessert. The coffee was also good. And we languished as long as we wanted. We were waited on. Just be aware Specials and drinks are not part of the offer. "

    I went for a meal last night with my daughter on our way back from hadleigh to Chelmsford and thought we would stop and try our taste card out , I had the beef borguinion and my daughter had the chicken stuffed with cheese and wrapped in pancetta , I found the beef tasted nothing like a borguinion at all and my daughters chicken was very dry with very little cheese filling I also was told that the grill menu was not included in the taste card deal which perhaps could have been write in the exclusions on the taste card site ,the pub itself was OK nothing to write home about but the staff were friendly and helpful , I can honestly say I'm glad it's was a taste card deal for the meal other wise it would have been quite expensive for what we had to eat there's a lot better out there for the same money we will not be returning .
