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.

We had one of The Ship's "Good" rooms which turned out to be a cozy little room up in the attic. As we got the room on a half price special offer this was a very good deal. The room was clean and well decorated. We were supplied with shower gel and shampoo and tea/coffee facilities. This grade of room... More

We enjoyed a lovely couple of days with excellent food and very friendly staff. We are not dog owners but had no problem sharing the bar with so many well behaved animals. It was ideal for a quiet Christmas with no fuss or enforced jollity. We enjoyed a morning walk on the heath before settling down for Christmas lunch which... More

We were intrigued and delighted by a couple of days in the Ship at Dunwich between Christmas and New Year. It is a pub with rooms but we were warmly greeted, checked in and shown to a simply furnished, clean and pleasant room with good-sized shower and windows overlooking the Dingle Marshes. We ate in the hotel both evenings and... More

Another excellent stay at the ship for the new year. The food and accommodation were first rate, the fireworks were a nice touch. Praise goes to all the staff who all worked so hard to make our stay so enjoyable. In fact we have already booked for next new year.

After a braving walk along the beach, we popped in with our lurcher for a drink before heading to Southwold for a pre-arranged lunch. The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome at the bar. The food menu (I had to have a look) sounded excellent and I wish we'd had time to stay for lunch.
