Description

A traditional pub food and a cosy atmosphere with Weekly entertainment comes in the form of Jam nights every Thursday and top quality live acoustic acts every Sunday.

3 bars and a large heated patio.

The Ship is one of the few remaining traditional pubs in Bedford. Built and licensed in 1758,the central town pub is now renowned for its character. Established as a public house by the late mayor of Bedford, James Chamberlain, the site dates back to 1681 where originally two pipe-makers' cottages stood, which explains the hidden relics of clay pipes and climbing irons, (for the use of the boys sent up to clean the chimney). These items were found in the cabin bar's fireplace during renovations in 1957. These are not the only gems the Ship has to offer. It came to light during the renovations to the fireplace that medieval masonry was discovered, thought to date back to the early 1400s. The aged bricks may be 'The Ship', though it is the character and atmosphere inside the walls that make it the popular public house it is today.
