Cheshire West Local Restrictions

So here’s the latest for what we are and aren’t allowed to do at the Ship now that we have moved into tier 2:

Those of you local to us, not huge changes, we’re still able to welcome you as a single household (and support bubbles where appropriate) up to a maximum of 6 inside, and the rule of 6 still applies outside. Facemasks whilst you’re not seated and 10pm closing time obviously still apply.

Sadly those from outside of Wirral, you’re being advised not to travel into high risk areas, so we suggest you hang on in there until things are relaxed, and hope the withdrawal symptoms from your Ship fix aren’t too severe.

We thank you for your continued support and understanding as we all adapt to these new restrictions.

The Ship, a traditional coaching inn with rooms in the quaint village of Parkgate, Wirral.

‘The Ship’ is as much the local’s local as it is the visitor’s retreat, offering the perfect afternoon stop, evening out or weekend escape. Our bar has an array of great local ales, quality wines and soft drinks. We also stock the usual and sometimes not so usual selection of whiskies, gins, rums and other tipples.

Our buzzy atmosphere in the pub stems from our healthy mix of diners and those popping in for a drink or two. You can nestle into a cosy corner, relax in front of our open fire, or take in the stunning views over the Dee Estuary to the hills of North Wales. In the warmer months, our heated sun terrace becomes a popular rest for walkers, cyclists and our guests to enjoy a drink whilst embracing the scenery and local wildlife (both the feathered and ice cream munching kind!)

Our hearty homemade menu is bursting with well known British classics as well as some of our own creative seasonal specials. Our team of chefs use all fresh and where possible local produce to ensure quality and freshness in every dish, and hopefully give you a flavour of the local area.

Not that you would know from looking at it but the Ship has 25 en-suite guest rooms above and to the rear of the inn creating the perfect stay whether on business or pleasure. Our location is perfect for popping along to Chester or hopping over the water to the hustle and bustle of Liverpool city centre, we are also just 15 minutes from the M53.
