The Old Ship Aground is an historic Edwardian pub located on the harbour in Minehead. Spectacular views across the harbour to the Quantocks and Wales, the location is idyllic.
Built in 1911, this grand old seafront building has recently been lovingly restored to offer homely accommodation and seriously good food.
With a background in restaurants and their own farm supplying home-grown produce directly to the pub, the owners pull out all the stops to provide top-notch hospitality.
Step into the bar for a good, old-fahioned welcome where you’ll find real fires to keep you warm in the winter, board games to keep you amused, a hand-picked wine list, a selection of real ales and lagers from Marstons Brewery and, of course, friendly staff to serve them to you.
The pub is proud of its reputation for great food and its “River Cottage’ style menu is a big draw. If it's not grown or raised on their farm, you can be sure it is locally sourced and the very best of quality. From home-smoked foods (they have their very own smoker) to their own baked soda bread, you’ll be sure of some delicious home-cooked dishes. Look out for their special seafood and pie and mash nights or book in for their every popular traditional Sunday carvery.
They have 12 new bedrooms offering a variety of single, double, twin and super king sizes. The style is simple and traditional and the views are to die for!
If you’re visiting in warmer weather make the most of their pretty flower-filled terrace overlooking the bustling seaside harbour with views across to the rolling Quantocks and to Wales. With a pedigree of over 100 years of hospitality you are assured of a truly classic English Inn experience, with all the trimmings!
