Ship On Shore

Come along to the Ship On Shore which has been along the seafront for years.

You are always guaranteed a warm welcome from the landlord, and all drinks and food are very reasonably priced.

Very traditional English pub, with the dried hops above the bar. You cannot miss the place, as it has an attached 'Grotto' , constructed from barrels of cement from a ruined sea cargo, decorated with sea shells.
