Welcome to The Ship in Distress

Here at the Ship in Distress pub in Christchurch, we’re proud to be a traditional village pub that you’d be proud to call your local.

Come along and enjoy a swashbuckling atmosphere along with whatever takes your fancy from our wide range of cask ale, craft beer, draught lager and cider, alongside our extensive wine list, and a great range of spirits and soft drinks.

We serve a hearty selection of fresh seasonal dishes every day, from 12pm until 9pm, which you can enjoy inside the pub or, on a sunny day, in our fantastic beer garden.

We’ll also soon be introducing a full programme of entertainment, including live music and regular quiz nights – check out our Facebook page for our latest events news!

So whether you’re joining us for a coffee, a pint in the sun or our delicious Sunday Roast, you can be sure you’ll get a warm welcome from everyone here at the Ship in Distress.

Hello from us

We are just as sad as you are following the news released by the Government on the forced closure of pubs – but we know this is for all the right reasons. 

We are doing all we can to support you, our lovely customers, during this challenging and uncertain time.

We know you can’t stay but you can still takeaway! Drop us a line, and we can arrange for your favourite drinks to take home!
