welcome to the ship inn

Set overlooking the golden sands of Mundesley Beach on the North Norfolk coast, The Ship Inn is the perfect destination for eating, drinking and relaxing. Dating back 300 years, it is perhaps the oldest pub on the Norfolk coast. Using only the finest, freshest ingredients from independent local suppliers, our kitchen brigade create dishes with skill and experience. We have a giant beachside garden where food and drink can be enjoyed while you watch the waves crash and the sun set.

Each of our cosy coastal bedrooms are fresh and inviting, decked out in nautical hues. They're perfect for a boutique pub stay!


We're dog friendly, find out more...

our response to covid-19

Your peace of mind and the safety of our Ship Inn family are our priority. We expect it will be a little while until we can have a busy bar again, but we are serving food, and welcoming guests for coastal stays and vitamin sea!
