The Ship Inn is at the heart of the beautiful South Devon village of Kingswear, looking across the river Dart to Dartmouth and Brittania Naval College. Our delicious home cooked menu is constantly changing to reflect the seasonal harvest of local goods that we use, and whether a quick lunch time bite or something more substantial, you can be sure that we have something to satisfy. We are proud of the reputation that the Ship Inn has for real ales, and we continue to offer a great selection of both local and regional beers, with something for every beer drinker. Wine lovers will definitely find something to inspire them at the Ship Inn, where our interesting wine menu is regularly supplemented with special wines. We look forward to welcoming you. Kevin & Michelle John and the Ship Inn team
