Come on in



Jeremy & team look forward to welcoming you to Ye Olde Ship Inn. Steeped in history it is one of the oldest, yet finest pubs in Guildford, Surrey. 

Situated a stones throw from Guildford Town centre the traditional country pub is nestled between the  River Wey and the North Downs Way.  A popular spot for walkers and locals alike. 

400 years on we are still serving wonderful home cooked food & ale! We have a great reputation for our homemade stone baked pizzas, locally sourced menu, handpicked fine wines & ales, and  friendly, genuine hospitality.

Little snugs & alcoves add to the cosy atmosphere, along with the open fires, treats for our four legged - friends and a secluded outdoor area. 

The covered garden is open all year round - heated in the winter and in the summer you can enjoy the sunshine. 

Bookings are always welcome - especially for the evening menu - but you are of course able to drop in at any time and we will do our very best to find you a table. 

Our takeaway menu is a huge hit with the locals. We are quietly confident that our pizzas are the very best in Guildford! 

We are currently hiring full & part time front of house staff. If you have a passion for hospitality and customer service please get in touch to apply. 

We look forward to meeting you, 

Jeremy &  Ye Olde Ship Inn Team

Now for a little bit of history

People have been clinking glasses, breaking bread and swapping gossip at Ye Olde Ship Inn since 1556.  The clientele were locals. The drunken sailors were yet to come!
