The Ship Hotel Brancaster – COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Guests

We are now open and ready to welcome you back.

Rest assured your health and well being is paramount and we have put into place many measures to provide you with that all important peace of mind. You will find social distancing signs throughout the Hotel which we request you to observe at all times. We have reduced the number of tables in our Restaurant and garden in order to provide thoughtful social distancing measures and have developed a QR code to allow for a swift check in and for food and drink orders to be taken as well. We will also be offering a “knock and drop” service should Hotel guests prefer to dine in their bedrooms.

A thermal imaging camera has been installed and we will be recording guests temperatures, anybody registering over 38 degrees centigrade will understandably not be permitted to remain at the hotel. We would therefore advise that you take your temperature before leaving home to avoid disappointment upon arrival.

Rest assured we have in place rigorous cleaning programmes across the Hotel and bedrooms will be “sealed” once housekeeping have thoroughly cleansed the room. Staff training is key and our team are committed to ensuring the well being of all our guests as well as protecting each other.

Please ensure before you leave home that you are not travelling from a very high risk, tier three area. The Government advice states “people should avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK if they are a resident in a “very high” area”.  If this applies, please call us to cancel your reservation and we will look to welcoming you on another occasion in the future.

Do get in touch with us if you would like any further information about our health and safety measures or if indeed you would like to book a stay with us or a table in our Restaurant.We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully welcoming you soon. Call us now on 01485 210333

With our very best wishes

Seb and all Team Ship

Fantastic birthday getaway with my girlfriend and dog

We went for one night as a surprise for my girlfriend and we got looked after so well by the staff. We had our own table one the restaurant/bar dog friendly so our dog could join us for the evening. The room was fantastic the dog had his own bed and treats. The food was amazing and service was excellent. Marcus and John really looked after us very well. The area its self is a really nice location. We hope to be back soon.

Good pub that’s welcoming and dog friendly.

We ate here twice. Our dogs joined us and were welcomed. Good beer and lovely food. Very comfortable stools!
We tried different dishes on each of our visits and all were very good. The mussels, from Wells not Brancaster, were delicious. Having had Brancaster mussels on another occasion, I have to agree that the Wells were better!.

Very pleasant stay

A very understanding management team. Very pleasant room, very spacious, bathroom very modern and even though it was pet friendly you couldn’t notice the difference a well done to the cleaners.

I would just like to apologise to the other residents for our ill health if our coughing awoke you.

Thanks again definitely stay again.

Fantastic Evening Meal

My wife and I recently visited the Ship Hotel in Brancaster for dinner one evening. …I have to say, the entire meal was absolutely wonderful… The service was equally fabulous, polite, happy and welcoming waitress. We would highly recommend a visit to this lovely restaurant.

Tripadvisor April 2018

“Shipshape” and Norfolk fashion!

…Over the years we have stayed in a number of hotels and pubs along this part of the wonderful North Norfolk coast and would rate “The Ship” as one of the very best. Looking forward to a return visit before too long.
