The Ship stands at the heart of the old village occupying a prominent position in the South Gloucestershire village of Alveston. The Ship Inn is a Grade II listed former coaching inn built in 1589. On summer days the garden terrace echoes with the sound of leather on willow from The Ship Field next door the home of Thornbury Cricket Club since 1871, where renowned Victorian cricketers the Grace brothers once played. Alveston is a quiet village high on the Ridgeway part of the ancient Western Trackway running from Alveston to Almondsbury one of a network of old roads linking Gloucester with the Roman port of Sea Mills. Surrounded by picturesque South Gloucestershire countryside and close to the wildlife havens of the Severn Estuary including the world-famous Slimbridge Wetland Centre.

Venue Service

By Samantha C, on 02 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2018

We had our wedding breakfast & evening party here on 15th June 2018. We were truly blown away by the exceptional service & professionalism of the entire team at the Ship. General Manager Emma & also Vicky went the extra mile to ensure our day was one to remember & just kept delivering in all aspects. We felt we were treated like family from the get go, & all the extra little touches they added to our day made us, our family & friends feel so special. The food was brilliant. Both sit down meal to the buffet was delicious. We cannot recommend the Ship highly enough as a place to host a special occasion. We will definitely be coming here again for all our future celebrations.
