I am informed the pub closed some time around 2011, but is now open again.

From a review by Steve C in June 2011:- "The "Ship" is a small over 21s L shaped pub with strange opening times of 15:00 until midnight on Mondays until Thursdays, 15:00 until 1am on Fridays, 11:00 until 1am on Saturdays and midday until midnight on Sundays. Happy hour is from 18:00 until 20:00 on Mondays until Thursdays where the standard draught is available for £2.50 a pint and there is live entertainment advertised for every Saturday night. There is a meat raffle every Sunday and at the rear there is a pool table and two dartboards. Football is advertised and is shown on the three plasma screens located throughout the pub. The bar is stocked with standard draught products alongside Amstel and I didn't spot any food advertised, although there were some nuts, pickled onions and gherkins laid out for free on the bar during my Saturday afternoon visit. Out the back there is a paved beer garden with a generous smoking shelter and a couple of café tables are situated out the front of the pub.

I thought that this pub was welcoming and although I wouldn't make a special trip I would pop in again if passing.

 

There was another pub called the "Ship" situated about two miles away in Strood the license from that was transferred to this after it was demolished in 1904 and William Rose continued as licensee here.
