About us

A £200,000 renovation has restored the Ship & Castle to its rightful position as the hub of the community and is now a thriving focal point in Congresbury. The sophisticated venue boasts Mediterranean Gardens with waitress served decking areas, patio umbrellas, water features and herb gardens to compliment the adjoining countryside with views toward Burrington Combe and the passing River Yeo with its variety of wetlands wildlife.

Younger ones can play on the wooden ship and castle fort and two large, mysterious white lions sitting on the lawns or enjoy an award winning Marshfield Farms ice cream from our traditional shuttered parlour. After dark the garden is transformed with undercover heaters and atmospheric lighting to create a spectacular setting to enjoy a relaxed dining experience under the wide open skies of the levels. The Ship & Castle Gardens, Congresbury

Choose from over 50 mouth-watering Mezze dishes ranging from traditional Greek and Spanish themed tapas to Indian, Chinese, Moroccan and Mexican dishes, or full A La Carte menu. All our delicious meals created by our head chefs who have gained experience at some of the top restaurants in the South West including Browns, Severn Shed, Aqua, Melbournes and Redcliffs.

Built on the site of a 15th century brewery and ale house, the Ship & Castle has retained many original features, which blend nicely alongside the fabulous new interior décor and the six beautifully appointed AA 4-star rated boutique hotel rooms offering a luxurious stay. Situated only 9-miles from Bristol International Airport, we are the ideal base from which to explore the nearby countryside and coast, the heritage cities of Bristol and Bath or nearby attractions including Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves and the Avon gorge with its world famous Clifton suspension bridge.

Visit us today to enjoy the ultimate Mediterranean experience for the whole family. We look forward to welcoming you.

2 night stay. Clean comfortable room but could do with a second pillow! Noisy main road location with no let up in traffic noise even though attempts had been made for secondary glazing. Could not control radiator in room so hot at night and could not open window due to noise. Food expensive for what you got. Helpful friendly staff. Good location for visiting attractions

What a lovely place! Rooms are massive and gorgeous. For dinner there was a huge choice and so tasty! Best grill up I’ve ever had for breakfast!

Lovely food but the baby changing facilities and disabled toilets are poor. Really cold and the changing table is far too high up. They are almost like a like out house and feel separate to the pub even though they’re in the entrance way. Far too high and too cold to change baby and I went to the car to change her instead

Odd location for bistro (on what is a busy juntion) but they have parking. I thought it was going to be a standard pub/restaurant but on arrival we menu looked more bistro with higher than planned prices. But the food quality was very good and the portion sizes good. Service was a little slow as arrived in qhat must have been a staff changeover time. Would eat there again.
