The Ship is owned by Jenny & Jeremy Kingcome  but it's  Jeremy, Melinda & Andre that you will find behind the bar and manning the pizza oven on a daily basis. 

Jeremy has had a lifelong love of food & hospitality and has dreamt of running a pub ever since he sat outside the Devon pubs of his childhood with a packet of crisps and a bottle of coke. In his opinion a pub is not a pub without a real fire so you'll find ours lit every day in Autumn & Winter.

Melinda has been creating pizzas at The Ship for the last 3 years and is the backbone of the kitchen.  She brings calm and order and keeps Jeremy in check.

They couldn't do it  without Andre & George who you'll also see on a daily basis.


Just a 15 minute walk from the main train station, we can be found situated across the road between the Guildford College of Law and Guildford Registry office.

The pub is popular with cyclists and walkers and if you are walking south along the River Wey from Guildford to Godalming you can and cut through Ferry Lane wich brings you out to the Portsmouth Road just beside us.



To book a table we advise you to call us on 01483 575731 but for anything else just drop us a message using the form below and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
