The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Once a haunt of smugglers, the Ship at Dunwich isn't just a great place to eat, drink, relax & get away from it all; it's also part of a great local story. There are comfortable, traditionally furnished rooms, some with great views across the sea marshes. 16 letting rooms and a tiled bar with simple wooden furniture and wood-burner. The menu is extensive. The pub has an enormous garden, dotted with fruit trees (including a 300 year old fig tree) and the beach really is just a couple of minutes walk away. There's music each month (on last Thursday). Beers are from local brewers. Beer Festivals are held in March & September.

Footnote

The Barne family once lived at Shrubbery Hall and owned much land locally. They also once levied tax on coals landed on 6 miles of beach (3d per chaldron) and claimed small sums (fines and fees) for ship wrecks.
