Mietta's ReviewAn historic hotel on South Bank, the Ship Inn has attracted the renovators attention. Today, the exterior is historic while inside it's smart and modern. It's also rather smaller than previously and the upstairs verandahs are reserved for function. The food is in keeping with the new look and in 06 mains averaged $22. The range beers on tap at the bar isn't huge but the price is right.

Courier-Mail Nick Bray Bar 29/4/05 "The historic hotel's fortunes have been mixed since then, but a recent makeover should restore the Ship Inn's reputation as a worthy drinking hole. It's a much smaller venue than you might remember, occupying a portion of the ground floor"
