Sadness of leaving The Old Ship

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Shane, Gail and their team for doing such a superb job of running The Old Ship, also our many customers and friends for their support and kindness over the past 25 years.

It is with great sadness that we leave such a lovely old pub.

Unfortunately, it appears that a small number of people do not realise the difficulties in running a small pub under management in the present climate.

The Ship may well, in the future, return to a pub as it has done in the last 100 years.

Our very best wishes go Costa Coffee.

Roger & Linda Newton
