The Ship Inn shall be re-opening on Thursday December 3rd.
As we have been placed in tier 2 we are having to operate under more stringent restrictions. That said we can only take bookings from single households or those single households along with their support bubble.
Whilst we are in tier 2 you are unfortunately no longer allowed to pop in for just a drink, unless that drink is accompanied by a "substantial" meal. Fortunately, we have a menu full of "substantial" meals (although please remember to book in advance.)
In the run up to Christmas, we will continue with our highly popular takeaway menu. This will now be available for collection on Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 5.30pm - 8pm and on Sundays from 12pm - 3pm.
Please place your orders by calling 01747 838 640 and if you can give us as much notice as possible it would be much appreciated.

Welcome to The Ship Inn at West Stour - Heart of Wessex CAMRA Pub of the Year 2016
The Ship is a privately owned informal country pub, retaining country pub values and atmosphere, whilst offering good quality food, drink and accommodation.
The Ship is a proper country pub, and as such has a number of traditional features mixed with plenty of modern touches.
We offer a variety of quality dishes using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The bar serves a varied & interesting selection of real ales, beers, traditional ciders and wines, while our accommodation offers five comfortable en-suite rooms.
In 2016 The Ship was awarded "Heart of Wessex CAMRA Pub of the Year" and we are currently featured in both The Good Pub Guide and The Good Beer Guide; The Ship’s unique ambience and warm décor, offers ample opportunity to relax away from it all, whether you’re simply dropping in for a drink, something to eat, or staying for business or pleasure.
The Ship is an ideal base to explore the region and the nearby towns of Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Gillingham are all within easy reach. Local attractions include Stourhead House & Gardens, Longleat Safari Park, The Fleet Air Arm Museum and The Haynes Motor Museum. Walkers can enjoy exploring the Stour Valley Way with its nearby footpaths, which pass through the picturesque Dorset countryside.
