The Olde Ship Inn is the busiest pub in town. It has a small bar to the right of the entrance with dining rooms beyond this. The small bar serves a L-shaped room. For its size the counter has a tremendous  amount of real ale on display. Non-real ale beers are actually harder to see as there are small shelves (for passing pints over on) covering their badges. Although small and busy there is no problem being served as there are plenty of barmen. Captains bar, a lounge with a small service counter of off the corridor to the right. More seating at end of corridor

The pub has a nautical theme all over the walls and hanging from the roof
