Trade at the Ship comes from the local village and surrounding areas.  It also benefits from passing trade due to its location.  Caton has been named as one of the top five places to live in the UK. There is currently a darts team on Thursdays which runs from September to March.  Along with a regular wet trade, a full food offer is provided. For the Ship we are looking for an operator with catering experience who is operational within the business.
