    I agree on the Ship, most Adnams owned pubs do really good food, but I've never been thrilled with the Oyster Smack either before or after its reincarnation as a quality place a few years back. We all have our own tastes.

    I heartily agree with this recommendation. A standing annual date for the last trip of the year in my previous boat, a Westerly Storm, was a short passage to moor up alongside the W&FYC for a hearty lunch. Needed a good lunchtime tide, but it worked out well on most occasions. The only time it didn't, the tide was perhaps a bit too good - we came out of the club in good cheer to find Stormalong floating over the road - took some head scratching to get us back aboard, after which we got safely back to Levington.

    That experience didn't deter us from returning the following year with rather more careful assessment of the predicted tide height and mooring technique. the clubs catering never failed to satisfy.
