    Default The Ship Inn Levington

    ... had a(nother) serious fire today. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-eng...lk-devastating

    I hope they can recover, we always enjoy a walk there along Levington Creek from SYH.

    The local TV news carried a longish piece last night. Pretty awful and now in need of a long rebuild. No news about cause yet but the company talking about starting to make plans.

    I had a good meal there last week. According to the reports it is the second time it has had a fire. What a pity.
    Perhaps cooking and thatch don’t go together well.

    Perhaps they’ll rename it ‘The Phoenix’ after this rebuild.

    The food has yo-yoed over the years. I have had good food there as well as some of the worst. On one occasion I ordered a steak and kidney pie, which you would think was harmless. It came on an oval plate, always a bad sign. On this plate was a small pile of chips and an earthen pot. In this pot was a sort of stew, covered by a beige layer that was entirely separate and had been plonked there, and was in any case uneatable or even breakable. To the side was another pile of salad! I think the chips were OK. I has been a nice pub and I hope it recovers.

    Maybe the pub will close and 4 very expensive houses will replace it.
    Could be a way to make more money than selling dubious steak and kidney pie.

    The S&K pie was many years ago. I wouldn't want to cast aspersions on any recent tenants.

    It had a brilliant spell before the first fire; it was never as good after that. I seem to think it’s an Adnams tied house?

    We were there on Friday night. Didn’t eat but very nice pint. Very sad as we were intending to make this a regular watering hole. Where do you go now fromSYH?
