About us

The Ship Inn is a small country pub with a big heart. A centrepoint of village life, we also welcome visitors from all over the UK and beyond to sample a piece of the quiet life in our detached chalet accommodation in the lovely village of Blaxhall.

The Ship Inn boasts an enviable location. Sat alongside a small country road in the peaceful little village of Blaxhall, it is only 2 miles from Snape Maltings and just a few more miles to the beautiful heritage coast at Aldeburgh or the historical market town of Woodbridge. We are only a few minutes from Wickham Market train station, giving a regular fast service into the centre of London.

Owned by Terry Davey and managed by Jane and Mike, our emphasis is on outstanding pub food using the best possible local ingredients. Food is served in the two open and interconnecting bar areas and the menu always includes popular country favourites alongside some globally inspired alternatives. We also have regular fresh seafood brought in directly from the Suffolk coast at Lowestoft. As you would expect of one of Suffolk’s finest Inns we also have several varieties of Real Ales on offer. We are also able to cater for special dietary needs, please simply call us to discuss your requirements.

At The Ship Inn we have the facilities to cater for business meetings or functions, private parties, weddings and wakes. Please contact us to discuss further.

Detached from the pub, we have two different sets of chalet accommodation – all offering a comfortable night’s sleep and an outstanding full English breakfast for those who would like it. For those looking for something to do, your hosts will be able to provide information on all the local towns, historic attractions, local walks and cycle rides.

Whereever you come from, and whatever you come for, we guarantee a warm and friendly welcome. Please come back to our website often to check out all the latest events and news.
