Ship Inn

The Ship Inn is nestled away just off the beaten track of the sea front in the historic coastal town of Lyme Regis, next to the Old Mill quarter in the heart of the old town. A wonderful and sympathetic full refurbishment is underway in November , which will deliver a stunning pub to be enjoyed all year round including brand new commercial kitchen. With the pub ready to set sail in early December for the key Christmas trading, we are looking for the right leader to take the helm.

A story of family, heritage, quality… and beer.

Palmers ales are brewed in one of Britain’s oldest and prettiest breweries and have been since 1794. The only thatched brewery in the UK, Palmers sits adjacent to the river Brit just a mile from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. All our fine ales are brewed using water from our own naturally rising spring.

Our Head Brewer uses only the finest Maris Otter malt and carefully selected whole leaf hops to produce ales in a way they have been made for generations. Palmers historic brewhouse has a traditional Mash Tun, an open top Copper, along with top fermentation, this is the way ale should be brewed.
