About the Pub

Refurbished in September 2013, which also introduced 3 real ales. If you remember it as it was, a visit to see it now is recommended. Dogs allowed at bar end of pub, not food end. Regular promotions on food/drink - check their website for latest details. Opens 3pm Monday over winter.

Historic Interest

The Ship Inn is the second oldest building in the area, with the church opposite being older, and is said to date from the early 16th century. The Ship was originally a private house on an estate called 'Stringers' and it was owned in 1639 by Lord Darcy. In 1709 the property and orchard behind was sold to Thomas Joy for £45. There were already two other alehouses in the village - The Queen's Head (which had opened in 1679) and the King’s Head (which is now a restaurant on the opposite corner). In 1788 John Cobbold provided the beer and 12 years later bought the premises for £700.
