From festive feasts to office Christmas parties and family gatherings, we’ll make your Christmas experience at the Old Ship a special one.

Keep things traditional with roast Norfolk turkey and all the trimmings, or opt for our stunning seasonal specials and buffet menu. Behind the bar you’ll find classic cocktails, craft beer, an extensive wine selection and plenty of bubbles.

We’ll be decking out the pub and hosting all kinds of entertainment and exciting events throughout the festive period, right up to New Year’s Eve.
