The Ship, Levington, news update

Tuesday 24th September 2019

Following a thatch fire at The Ship, Levington in March this year the pub has been closed whilst our specialist builders have worked alongside Conservation Officers and our insurers to ensure this iconic pub is restored and reopened as quickly and authentically as possible. We are pleased to say that these works have progressed well and will conclude with the reinstatement of the thatched roof in October, allowing the pub to reopen its doors to customers in time for Christmas.

We are also delighted to announce that Deben Inns Ltd., who currently operate six other nearby pubs, will be taking on the lease for The Ship. This will complement their two other Adnams properties - The Maybush, Waldringfield and The Butt and Oyster, Pin Mill - making them a perfectly positioned partner to restart and grow the business at this wonderful pub for both the local community and visitors alike.

Once again, we’d like to thank everyone associated with the pub for their patience and understanding during this period of closure.
