Woodbridge Ship

Woodbridge Ship

closed 10th October 1908

5 Quayside

grid reference TM 273 488

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Ship's license was issued in 1843. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

The license was expired in 1908 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses. The building now houses shops and a private residence.

The building dates from the 16th century.

The pub is also listed at the Quay and at Common Quay.

At least three other buildings in the town have been used as pubs called the Ship over the years (one nearby and two in Chapel Street).

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
