See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Historic building, reputed to be the Ship in Dickens' Great Expectations. Located on the Saxon Shore Way, it is popular with walkers and sea anglers. There is an outside drinking area on the river wall with views of the river Thames. Inside there are pictures with a nautical theme. One varying real ale from Iron Pier is available with one real cider. Advisable to book for the popular Sunday lunches. Occasional themed food nights: Wednesday steak, Friday fish. Open at 10 am on Saturdays for breakfast. Occasional events include cabaret nights. The pub may close early if quiet. It is in winter mode at the time of the survey but changes are imminent for summer with, among other things, later closes and more real ales.
