The Ship at Dunwich

A traditional coastal inn with local ales, home made food, real fires and comfortable traditionally furnished bedrooms.

Opening Season

The Ship at Dunwich hotel, restaurant and pub is set in a quiet, idyllic village, surrounded by nature reserves, heathland and beach, only the romantic ruins of Dunwich monastery remain to hint at the fate of this once thriving medieval port, claimed by the waves during a terrible storm. It’s said you can still hear the peal of the church bells beneath the waves, while we can’t guarantee that, there are certain, more earthly things we’re always happy to provide. Real ales, real food and a real fire. Comfortable, traditionally furnished rooms, some with views across the sea or marshes. An enormous garden, dotted with fruit trees (including our 300 year old fig tree) and a beach that really is just a couple of minutes’ walk away.

Whether you want to use it as a base to explore this wild and wonderful coastline, enjoy some of the best fish and chips on the coast or simply indulge in a pint or two of Adnams, The Ship Inn extends the warmest of welcomes.
