Why Our Pub is Great

You can expect a warm welcome and comfortable night’s stay from our team, at The Old Ship Inn. We’re nice and easy to find and provide free parking and disabled access for our customers. We are renowned for great food and drink, in a lively atmosphere.

Get some friends together and join us for dinner. Food is served daily from noon. Whether you’re stopping by for lunch or dinner, you’ll find delicious pub classics - fish and chips, lasagne, grills, burgers and more, plus our regularly updated specials menu.


Why not stay the night? We have a number of rooms and everything you need for a restful night’s sleep and we’re ideally located to explore Dorchester.

We’re a welcoming local pub with a great social calendar. Get your sports fix at The Old Ship Inn, where we show matches regularly. Relax in the beer garden or get cosy by the fire. We look forward to seeing you.

About Our Food

If you’re looking for somewhere to grab a bite to eat with friends, or pop in after work – head on over! Our new menu features lots of dishes with big flavour!

Fancy something a little lighter? No problem – check out our Chicken and Bacon Salad, or range of ‘skinny’ burgers that will go nicely with one of our refreshing drinks!

And if there’s room for more, we’ve got a range of indulgent puds at wallet-friendly prices if you feel like treating yourself! Lots of our food is eligible for daily or weekly deals too.
