 My husband and I had two nights at the Old Ship Aground on our way back home from Cornwall. We booked a table for the evening and enjoyed a lovely meal. No salt or pepper was needed which always means the Chef has a very good palate. The breakfast on both days was excellent and we had a lovely carvery on the Sunday. The staff were all very cheerful and friendly and made an effort to make us feel very welcome.
