Here at The Old Ship Aground food is very much a part of what we do. We LOVE TO COOK and is very much ‘River Cottage’ in style – if we cannot raise it or grow it, you can be sure it’s locally sourced, from home raised Mutton to oven fired hams you can be assured it’s the very best of quality..
With our small farm on the hills of Exmoor we have a real connection with traditional farming and understand the true importance of good produce to make good food.
We run with a Bar Classic’s menu which has everything you would expect to find as well as a varied and interesting restaurant menu Our daily specials black boards also give us a chance to show off a little. Seafood always has a big presence after all we are by the sea. Be assured its seasonal, Fresh and Local
With the addition of our very own smoker we cure and smoke such things as bacon, fish and meats, which is always a great way to enhance our offering.
You can enjoy good food and atmosphere in our relaxed Pub area, in the Courtyard Restaurant or you may decide to dine alfresco and enjoy the wonderful views.
The Old Ship Aground, built in 1911 and formally known as The Pier Hotel, (they took the pier down in the war so thought it prudent to change the name) is an historic listed Edwardian pub located on the old harbour area in Minehead. With some of the best views in Minehead across the harbour to the Quantocks and Wales, the location is idyllic.
We fell in love with her and bought back in May 2013. Since then we sorted the old girl out and refitted almost everything from top to bottom. Now with 12 new bedrooms offering a variety of single, double, twin and super king sizes there is a room for everyone, with all the little extras you’d expect – flat screen tv’s, tea, coffee & biscuits, bathroom sets and free wifi etc.
We offer great old fashioned hospitality, and doing a good job of it, is very important to us. You don’t have to just take our word for it, please check out our reviews, both on Google and Trip Adviser.
Hope to see you soon.
