Welcome To The Ship Inn

Surrounded by the historic Chester city wall, with home cooked food and quality Cask ales, The Ship is a family friendly inn that has everything a traditional English pub should have.

Our charming pub, restaurant and private dining room are all perfectly situated with views overlooking the idyllic River Dee. These spaces make for the perfect spots to work your way through our impressive food and drink menus.

We pride ourselves in our ability to accommodate for all, so whether you’re looking for a quick pit stop whilst enjoying a day exploring the Roman bridges of Chester, a lunch with the family after a leisurely river walk or a quiet weekend drink accompanied with our delicious Sunday Lunch, we will make sure your visit is one to remember.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

The Ship Inn team.
