We will be making improvements to The Old Ship Aground over the next 12 weeks

The Old Ship Aground, built in 1911 and formally known as The Pier Hotel, is an historic listed Edwardian pub located on the harbour in Minehead. With some of the best views in Minehead across the harbour to the Quantocks and Wales, the location is idyllic.

The Old Ship Aground, Quay St, Minehead, TA24 5UL.


Accommodation comprises 12 bedrooms offering a variety of single, double, twin and super king sizes – there’s certainly a room for everyone.

Each room comes with all the little extras you’d expect, flat screen tv’s, tea, coffee and biscuits, bathroom sets and free WIFI.

It was deep in Dorset’s rolling hills and patchwork fields, in 1777, that local farmer Charles Hall brewed our first beer.

A union of the Hall & Woodhouse families soon followed and the story of Badger beer had begun. To create the distinctive character of our delicious Badger beers, we combine hops and malted barley with pure spring water which has been filtered naturally through the Cretaceous chalk downs of Dorset.

Our comprehensive range of cask and bottled beers, all with distinctive characters, are available throughout the year, although our offering does vary seasonally.

Our wines

Our eclectic wine list contains all of your favourites from around the world, from refreshing whites featuring Borsoa, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Chablis Chardonnay grape varieties, to reds packed with fruit flavours and featuring Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec grapes.

And if that’s not enough our rosé and sparkling wines and non-vintage Champagnes are ideal for those long summer evenings watching the world go by.
