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.
