About the Pub

The Ship Inn closed October 2018 and reopened 22/02/2019 as The Bear Bar & Kitchen, but it didn't last long under this name and it reverted to the Ship Inn by March 2020. Awaiting new survey so Features & Facilities information on this page may be out date. The previous description for the Ship Inn was:

Across the river bridge from the town centre, this traditional 16th-century coaching inn is worth the small effort needed to find it. Recently refurbished, the pub has an intimate, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, and sports a beamed ceiling, wooden floor and fine leaded front window. On three levels, it is surprisingly extensive inside; the lower end is the main bar, adjoining which is a split-level, well-appointed restaurant leading to a sun-trap sun deck and courtyard seating. The guest ale offered is generally from a local micro-brewery, whilst the menu is prepared with locally-sourced produce. Already award-winning for overall quality, this is probably the best pub in town. Please however note the notice which may sometimes appear in the window: "may close early if not busy".
