The Old Ship Aground is a Free House located on Minehead Harbour. Back in 2013, after looking hard for 2 years, we came across The Old Ship Aground – a boarded up and run down building, that needed new life breathed into her. She was originally built in 1911 as The Pier Hotel, a rather grand Edwardian hotel.

Right from the start we wanted to provide good old fashioned hospitality with a quality dishes created from great honest local ingredients. Put simply a pub that we would want to go to.

The bar area is welcoming with great atmosphere, a real fire to keep you warm in colder weather, board games available and a friendly crew of bar staff. We have a handpicked wine list (yes we really did select each wine ourselves) and we also offer a great range of drinks behind the bar with Marston’s assisting us by providing a good choice of Real Ales, lagers and bottled products.

We have a very popular alfresco area right on the Harbour side where you can relax with a drink / food and enjoy the sea views. Children & well behaved dogs are always welcome. We are very proud to announce that The Old Ship Aground was in the Good Pub Guide in the first year of opening. Coffee / Teas/ Hot Chocolate served all day and Lunch is available 12 to 2.30pm and Dinner 6pm till 9pm. We serve food in the relaxed Bar area, in our separate newly refurbished Restaurant area or Alfresco.

You can check what’s happing in our kitchen through Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram or here on our website.

We look forward to welcoming you.
