The Ship Inn

The Ship Inn


The Ship Inn, Herne Bay. A Grade II 14th century Inn steeped in history, located idyllically on the town's seafront, with uninterrupted sea views.
​The small hamlet which developed around the pub became home to a fishing community, and later on as a beaching point for goods being transported by boat, to and from London, as well as coal from Newcastle.Our bar offers everything you'd expect, from ales such as Adnam's Ghost Ship and Doom Bar, draught and bottled lagers including Birra Moretti, Amstel, Estrella and Peroni, as well as an excellent gin selection, wines and soft drinks.
​We're incredibly proud of our food, sourcing locally where possible, and offer a varied menu of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes, with our Sunday Roast proving ever popular (booking always advised). Chef's Specials board is updated regularly, come in to the pub or call us to enquire.
