The Old Ship Aground was built in 1911 and is an historic listed Edwardian pub located on the harbour. With some of the best views in Minehead across the harbour to the Quantocks and Wales, the location is idyllic.

As well as 12 superb bedrooms, food is a very big feature at The Old Ship Aground. The menu is very much ‘River Cottage’ style, all locally sourced and the very best of quality. From home-smoked foods to home-baked soda bread, you won't go hungry.
