The Ship Inn

West Stour, Gillingham, SP8 5RP
The Ship Inn is a proper old country Inn, with comfortable rooms, delicious food and a traditional bar. We are an independent family owned free house offering great hospitality, with real food and a real welcome. Our team, led by Sarah and Nick, share a strong ethos from food production to service and work closely with the farmer, fisherman and artisan to deliver a great guest experience. Enjoy the atmosphere of our flagstone old bar, our casual food offering, from breakfast to afternoon tea, perhaps on our terrace or in the garden. Or, indulge in the full food experience in one of our intimate dining rooms. Relax and stay in one of our personally crafted en-suite bedrooms and explore the locality with its many gems. Food is at the heart of our culture- what we eat, how it is grown, made and served. Our values shape our menu decisions- environmentally positive, sustainable and delicious food you want to eat!

South West Dining Pub "The owners have clearly managed to keep the ‘local’ feel but bring in a mixture of their own personalities and experiences which is lovely to see. We would recommend The Ship Inn to friends and family as a great local place to visit with a fabulous menu of value for money food and drinks." - Taste of the West Judges 2023 Hospitality - Dining Pubs 2023
