The accommodation was first class with a comfy room,good shower and a view overlooking the marshes. The food was excellent and service was really good. We have eaten and drunk in... More

We just returned from a last minute break to The Ship in Dunwich, and are already looking forward to returning. We chose it as a base to explore the area, and also because it is dog friendly, and we were very glad that we did. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. We stayed in a "good" room,... More

Myself and my wife have just spent a lovely three nights at The Ship, our first visit to the area. We stayed in the Bridgegate room which was warm, comfortable and clean. We ate in the bar all three nights and were both impressed with the quality of the food. My highlight was the Salt Cod and Salmon fish cake... More

I recently took a large group to the Ship at Dunwich. As always, the food and real ales were outstanding. Also, the welcoming and cosy character of the pub suited us perfectly, notably the exclusive use of the large dining room, which made for thoroughly enjoyable and atmospheric breakfasts and dinners. This review, however, is to highlight the amazing service... More

We visited this establishment during a visit to the area. We booked a table prior to the visit, and it was just as well. Whilst not full, it was busy. The staff were attentive and the food very good. I will have no hesitation eating here again and would recommend to anybody who likes good food at a sensible price.

Joined a large group of family & friends for a weekend celebration and the hospitality, food, staff & food couldn't be faulted. Extremely enjoyable from beginning to end. All the staff were a joy to chat to and went out their way to help in any way they could considering we were a large group & probably created some noise... More

Just back from a long weekend in Dunwich. We ate at the Ship Inn on Friday and Sunday nights. We found the staff friendly with a "no problem you have a huge dog with you" attitude. The food was above average I'd say and with the great location just a few steps from the sea I would highly recommend it.
