is OK, especially in winter as they have the sofa and fire. But I agree when I first moved here I used to walk past it and it was always full of old men who looked half dead. It still is on saturday lunch times as there is a betting shop opposite.But generally the customers seem to be getting younger and more varied. Not such a summer pub though...
As to the Ship - maybe the all-knowing James can recall which posting someone mentioned it in.
