About the Pub

Built in the reign of King Charles II, it began life as a coaching inn. Timbers from an old wooden sailing vessel were used in the construction, giving the pub its name. These exposed beams can still be seen in the Old Bar, which has a quarry-tiled floor and a large open fireplace. On the other side is the restaurant and restaurant extension with a traditional but more modern décor. The Ship is now run enthusiastically as a family business, providing home-made food to a high standard and well-kept cask ales, quality wines, and a range of spirits and other drinks. The large garden has numerous modern benches, a patio, pond, a large kids play area and several pétanque pitches. Walking routes such as the Pilgrim’s Trail pass close to the pub. Cyclists and horse rides are very welcome: there is a sizeable horse park in the garden.
