The History of ‘The Ship’

Originally dating from 1654 “The Ship Inn” has a history to be proud of, ranging from regular visits from royalty enjoying the salmon fishing on the nearby River Test, to smuggling. Backing as it would have done onto the old quayside.

Today your hosts Alison and Charlie invite you to experience “The Ship Inn” as it would have been. Beautifully restored, with original beams and long forgotten inglenook fires. We are confident of an offering to suit all tastes.
