Imagine the perfect coastal pub. A stroll from the beach, open log fires in winter, light and airy in summer with sheltered sun traps outside in Autumn and Spring to enjoy off season sunshine. Paired with simple, beautifully cooked food - of the season and of the place, all washed down with a pint of beer or a glass of pinot.

The Ship at Dunwich looks and feels just as a great coastal pub should.

Pop in, our crew look forward to piping you aboard soon.

Our food ethos is simple

Good food, locally sourced, skilfully cooked and thoughtfully served. Ingredients from our land and sea make up our seasonal menu. Tradition pub favourites with a sprinkling of something different for the intrepid foodie.

Locals and visitors alike feel at home in our atmospheric bar, the snug dining room or the light filled conservatory. In warm weather a sunny terrace and ample beer garden add al fresco dining.

Our attentive, ship shape crew look forward to welcoming you on board.
