A Little History...

A Wadebridge Institution and one of the oldest public houses in the town. it takes it’s name from when Wadebridge was a significant port and Bradford’s Quay, at the bottom of Gonvena Hill, exported the local wool. Legend has it that the town’s bridge had it’s first foundations based on sacks of wool. Local stone was also transported from the town’s quays.

The long history of the Ship Inn gives us many tales and it seem that most locals have a story relating to the pub. We are proud to be the latest custodians of the pub and are pleased to see so many local people venturing back into the pub to see the updated layout and furnishing and also to enjoy the food, drink and service we provide.

We would love to hear of any stories that abound about the Ship and also to take copies of any old pictures that exist of the pub and the characters who frequented it in the past.
