The Ship has been in the same family for three generations and is one of the most popular pubs in Chelmsford, owing to its great reputation, warm atmosphere, dedicated staff and excellent location. It is one of the oldest pubs in Chelmsford, and its food is celebrated locally.
Situated just a stone’s throw from Chelmsford’s railway and bus station, and with ample parking at the rear, The Ship is a great meeting point for both locals and those from further aﬁeld. These combined factors have made this watering hole a desired destination for many years, so it’s always had a thriving, lively atmosphere.
The Ship offers excellent homemade food with great gourmet staples like the legendary Golden Hind burger, and there are always some delicious daily specials on the boards. Throughout the day you can choose from an all-day breakfast selection, or opt for a sandwich, toastie, jacket potato, burger or your favourite pub classic. The likes of lamb shank, sausage hot pot with mashed potato, smoked haddock with poached egg and mustard sauce, and perfectly spiced chicken madras with rice and a poppadom are sure to tempt you. Desserts at The Ship are also a real treat, so be sure to check out the chalkboard for the daily selection.
A great wine menu accompanies the food, as does a vast selection of spirits and a huge range of beer, including draft lager, six different real ales and exciting craft beers and guest ales. If you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay where you can be sure of a good meal, The Ship also offers attractive guest bedrooms – the perfect home from home for those exploring the local area, catching up with friends, or working nearby.
