Dating back to the year 1700 The Ship Inn, it is said, was originally to be called ‘The Sheep Inn’; but the sign writer misunderstood the broad Suffolk dialect that was native to here.  By the time the mistake was noticed it was too late.

Featuring in many local tales, a few songs and in George Ewart Evans famous book about rural life ‘Ask the fellows who cut the hay’; The Ship Inn is one of the oldest Folk Music pubs in East Anglia, possibly the whole country.

From Woodbridge proceed along the A12 past the Wickham Market turns, the road then becomes a single carriageway.  As you come into the village of Little Glemham be prepared to turn immediately right at The Lion pub, a white building sitting back off the road. After turning right, follow the signs to Blaxhall traveling along a narrow country road. At the t-junction turn right, after a little while cross over a small bridge and a railway crossing, you are now enterinng Blaxhall. Keep going straight ahead, after about half a mile you will see the village hall, a grey wooden building, on your right.  Proceed 100 yards to the cross roads, turn right, the pub is 100 yards on the left with a car park opposite.
