After a long drive The Ship was a site for sore eyes. A beautiful pub both inside and out - the perfect pit stop before a walk along the beach. Notably, they have some nice outdoor seating and are presumably dog-friendly as there were a lot of wagging tails outside!

We live in Suffolk and as a family we have been coming to the Ship at Dunwich for over 30 years as it's always been a fantastic destination. On Sunday 15th Feb we decided to drive to Minsmere and walk to Dunwich for late lunch. To be on the safe side we checked the Ship's website to ensure they deserved... More

You always know you will get a great meal with friendly service at The Ship. High quality, locally sourced food and a varied menu lifts this above the usual seaside pub fare. The dining room is particularly atmospheric, with old photos and paintings of Dunwich. Dogs and their owners are also well looked after.

Beautiful simple food Which was oh so delicious. A mesmerising location for a break by the sea - right next to the beach and other heritage coast attractions (we walked Southwold). The place to go to clear the mind... Perfect rooms: clean, well decorated and honely, a yummy breakfast and the pub was FULL of charm.

Came here after a recommendation from friends. The pub is 1 min from the shingle beach on a very quiet road, this is January though!! We were greeted in the bar area by a very friendly member of staff and the staff were all the same, friendly but not overly attentive but if you needed anything it was no trouble... More

This is a pub with accommodation and is really homely. The pub part is very old and with a roaring fire and chat = a lovely place to enjoy. The food is just delightful and well presented and overall the place is kept so clean. A good find.
