    My meal was excellent and a good portion. The fish was delicious and the batter so light. Maybe a bit of salad would have complimented the meal. Chips were fresh and hot. The Ship Inn is my regular as I can walk from home. The receptionist kindly let me know when Jacqueline booked that there would be a quiz night happening so I booked an earlier time and finished our meal before the quiz commenced. I had friends from Perth with me they said their meal of cold salmon was delicious plus a great salad too.

    Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted to hear, as a regular, that you are pleased with the services we provide. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards from Sam & the Crew.

    The Ship has always been our go to pub while in Busselton (and we are in Busso several times a year) but not now. Very dissapointed. Menu not great variety to choose from, food ok but not what it used to be. Didn't appreciate having to listen to loud Guns 'n Roses video clips while in the dining room - I know it's a pub, but really! No consideration for any conversation amongst diners, especially the oldies. I know change can be progress but in this case not - for a Friday night the dining room was only half full & outside completely empty. This speaks volumes as not so long ago you struggled to get a booking.

    The Ship Inn (Owner)

    Hi Alison, Apologies you didn't enjoy your time here with us. We have lots of new specials and menu items and would love to invite you back to give us another try. We are more than happy to change the TVs or turn the volume down on the speakers if its too loud. Thank you The Ship Inn Crew

    Good food, but arriving and finding that steak is only available on two days only is disappointing...really wanted pub steak. Service was excellent though!

    The Ship Inn (Owner)

    Hi Kel, Thank you for your feedback. We have taken all onboard and we are now doing steak specials 7 days a week. We look forward to seeing you back soon! Bree and the Crew

    We sat outside and was pleasant . 2 ordered fish and chips I think you could make it look more preventable by adding a little salad without having to Pay extra $4. The Salmon quich was to me a little dry and over priced.

    The staff were friendly & helpful. Service was fast and the food was delicious. The salad with the snapper & prawn pie & chips was ridiculously overcrowded with red onion which I don't eat so had to pick out and pick out and pick out, it never seemed to stop.

    Great food. just needed to be hotter as the curry and the rice were only just warm. Maybe some pickle on the side would have been nice.

    Hi Sharon, Thank you for your feedback! I will pass this on to the chefs. We are glad you enjoyed your time otherwise. We hope to see you again soon. Bree and the Crew

    Unfortunately all of the ALH venues we have eaten at recently have gone down hill. My wife and I would eat at one of there many pubs in Perth and the South West at least once a week. They have now changed the menu for the worse and introduced a QR code "order yourself" system - and then have the audacity to charge you a credit card fee to serve yourself. No service, average food and price increases across the board - why would you eat there now?

    The Ship Inn (Owner)

    Hi Shelley, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us if you would like to phone to discuss further please don't hesitate to. Thank you The Ship Inn Management

    We have always enjoyed going to the Ship for the great meals but they have changed the menu to a 90% sea food only menu. If you had allergies with sea food it would be very hard to satisfy your hunger as all red meats and chicken have been removed. Booked a table for 10 and none of us won’t go again until it’s changed. Staff was great.

    Unless you like Tuna, Prawns and Salmon (that is their entire menu) I wouldn’t bother going - you’ll just be wasting your time. It’s a pub and you can’t even get steak and chips - like really?!

    The Ship Inn (Owner)

    Hi Shanae, Thank you for your feedback. If your after Steak we do still have steak available on Wednesdays and Saturdays and would love to see you come back in and give us another try on one of these days. Bree and the Crew.

    The area we were sat in was very dark, my meal was poor, my wife said it was the worst meal she had ever had whilst being in Australia, very poor choice of GF options and not really a great choice for me.

    The Ship Inn (Owner)

    Hi Paul, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us. Were these issues raised with management at the time? We are quick to respond and fix any customer complaints at the time but hard to amend once the customer has. Thank you Bree and the Crew.
