The Old Ship Inn

7 The Ridgeway, WEYMOUTH, DT3 5QQ

Thomas Hardy refers to this 400-year-old pub in his novel Under the Greenwood Tree, and copper pans, old clocks and a beamed open fire create a true period atmosphere. Expect a good selection of real ales of tap, perhaps Dorset Jurassic, St Austell Proper Job and Sharp's Doom Bar, with Addlestones cloudy cider as an alternative. A frequently changing menu of good home-cooked pub food offers crispy whitebait; grilled goats' cheese bruschetta; the ever popular pork belly braised in Addlestones cider with black pudding and dauphinoise potatoes; home-made pie of the day; and parmesan crusted cod. On sunny days bag a bench in the garden and enjoy the views across Weymouth.
