Having wasted my time by going in to the Borough Arms, which had no beer I was well pleased with the very good pint of Jennings I had in here. Even more pleased with the generous portion of Beef stew and dumplings which was very good indeed.A good place to hide on shopping trips!

i have to agree, expensive, and more of a cafe than a pub, good live music at weekends but then its full of people to full and you cant get served and too loud to chat and enjoy a good evening out

Well kept beer, though over-priced, and the menu is pretentious and unappealing. The decor is somehow reminiscent of a solicitor's waiting room. What was the brewery thinking of? This pub used to have atmosphere. Now it's more like a television lounge in a cheap 1970s hotel.

expensive but classy. I think ruined is a bit harsh. I wouldnt set foot into the dingy odd little place it used to be but now I quite enjoy it.

The Old Ship Inn is currently being refurbished and will open on 14th March 2008. The pub has a completely new look but has an excellent selection of Ringwood and guest ales. Worth a look!!

Could do with a bit of a clean-up but the bar staff are friendly enough. This type of pub always seems to have a line of old blokes sat at the bar watching horse racing on the TV and the Old Ship didn't disappoint.
