We went to check in and were directed to the bar. We stood in line with people ordering their beer and dinner. When it was our turn the bartender called someone over to tend bar and showed us to our room. Our room was over the kitchen so he explained that the staff would not turn the fans on I... More

Firstly, all of the staff were so freindly and helpful, from the cleaners to the office staff, nothing was too much trouble .I travelled solo with my 2 dogs and was looking for plenty of lovely walks and local beach. Dunwich did not disappoint it was superb in every aspect. The Ship itself welcomed us warmly and the room was... More

Located close to many for the coasts best sites in a village with a beguiling history The Ship is a great choice. The rooms are pleasant and the pub has a number of different formal and informal rooms for dining and drinking. There is also a lovely beer garden. Food is well above average and it's a lovely place to... More

After a long drive we arrived at the Ship on 24th July to be told that they were full and they had no record of our booking made two weeks before via Hotels,com. I had the printed copy of the booking and an e-mail confirmation with the booking reference etc. Bizarrely they said that they didn't deal with Hotels.Com but,... More

We stayed two nights at The Ship. We were looking for a relaxing short break and our stay here lived up to all our expectations. The location is absolutely beautiful and we did lots of walking. There is an interesting museum just down the road which was well worth a visit too. Our room was comfortable and clean with plenty... More

What a great pub/hotel/restaurant. We stayed for one night, and only because we couldn't find anywhere else with availability. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and shown to our room which was perfect. Everything we needed, plus a good bathroom. We checked in and then went out for the day and evening, returning too late to enjoy the... More

We decided to visit Dunwich on a whim. We found The Ship and ordered lunch from a menu that went beyond the basic pub fare. The pub itself is beautiful, the staff helpful and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

Popped in for an alcoholic beverage as you do and decided to have something to eat? There were 4 of us in our party and we all had different main menu meals? Couldn't fault the food being a vegetarian I opted for the beetroot and Parmesan cheese tartlet with salad and seeds it was bloody ansome! Each one of us... More

Accommodation is very good but beware many rooms are same price and if book late and get rooms on top floor they are very small with height restrictions, smallest shower room, check which rooms you have by book direct with pub. It was expensive for what we had . Other larger rooms available . One main meal Disappointing we were... More

A delicious lunch - whitebait, pork with leeks in creamy sauce, bubble and squeak followed by the most delicious sticky toffee pudding! Very full and varied menu. Book a table, we're glad we did; not long after we arrived at 12:30 the place just seemed to fill up. Dog-friendly, and there were plenty of them too.
