When you visit The Ship at Dunwich, you will find a great pub, home-cooked food in our restaurant, a cosy hotel with comfortable, traditionally furnished bedrooms,some with views across the sea or marshes. There is also an enormous garden, dotted with fruit trees (including our 300-year-old fig tree) and a beach that really is just a couple of minutes walk away.

There’s plenty to enjoy on The Ship’s menu from: pie of the day, slow-cooked pork belly, or roast red onion tart through to traditional English puddings like sticky toffee, pear and blackberry crumble and much more, accompanied by good wines at sensible prices, or proper beers and ales – including Adnams and a range of guest ales.

This leads straight into the village, and The Ship is at the end of the road (stop when you reach The Ship or you’ll end up in the sea!). Alternatively, if you’re coming from the south, you can turn off the A12 towards Westleton, then continue through Westleton village and then turn right twards Dunwich. In the village turn left a short way to find us.

How to get to us by train: the nearest local train station is Darsham, approximately 5 miles from The Ship Inn. On leaving the station turn left down the hill and take the first turning on the right, follow the road into Westleton village, then continue on to Dunwich as described above.
