The Ship Inn, Acaster Malbis

The Ship Inn at Acaster Malbis is a very popular spot with locals and visitors as it's in a picturesque location on the banks of the River Ouse to the south of York. The best way to arrive, if you enjoy cycling, is by bike, as you can take Sustrans cycle route 65 from York towards Selby and take a short detour off the cycle track to call in at the Ship Inn. If you prefer you can arrive by boat (trips from the centre of York) or by car.

The Ship Inn is a traditional pub serving decent food and the grassy beer garden out the front makes it a delightful place to sit and enjoy a drink in the sunshine on a summer's day or evening. There is also a small area with children's playground equipment in the garden which is a good distraction for younger visitors.

We enjoyed a light Sunday lunch of ham baguette with chips and salad and cheese baguette with chips and salad for £6 each which was very reasonable and not too heavy for a summer's day. It's worth a drive or cycle out to visit the Ship just for its superb location.
