Traditional home cooking

Eat/Drink - Dining at The Ship at Dunwich, Suffolk

Once you've enjoyed a drink in the bar - or, for that matter, in our lovely conservatory or covered courtyard - chances are your tastebuds will be tingling. All our food is home-made, reasonably priced and traditional in flavour.

There's plenty to enjoy on The Ship's menu from: pie of the day, slow-cooked pork belly, or roast red onion tart through to traditional English puddings like sticky toffee, pear and blackberry crumble and much more, accompanied by good wines at sensible prices, or proper beers and ales - including Adnams and a range of guest ales.

That's what we stand for - good, honest, top quality fare. Choose to eat in the bar, the conservatory, our lovely garden or, in the evening, the dining room with its scrubbed pine tables and sisal matting.

There's no need to book a table in advance (unless you're part of a big party), so why not pop along to The Ship at Dunwich and experience the great food and welcoming atmosphere firsthand?

You could even make a night of it by booking a room and enjoying a short stay on Suffolk's coast to enhance your dining experience.

"The pick is The Ship at Dunwich, a little pub with rooms that dishes up huge portions of fried fish - cod, haddock or plaice - with some of the finest chips in the land. Washed down with a glass of Adnams Southwold Bitter, this comes close to heaven."

"I've got three words to say about old smugglers' haunt The Ship at Dunwich. Sticky. Toffee. Pudding. Miss it and live a life of regret. Also try the Blythburgh pork and black-pudding Scotch egg.”
