About The Ship Inn

We welcome those arriving by either land or sea here at The Ship Inn, a cosy waterside pub in Lymington that serves freshly cooked pub-food, quaffable wines and well-kept real ales with a good measure of old-fashioned English hospitality. When it's chilly, grab a glass of what you fancy and warm your cockles by our log-fire, or in summer head out to our beer terrace for cracking views of the marina.
