The Ship Inn Exeter

The Ship Inn on Martin's Lane is one of Exeter's most historic pubs. Reputedly Sir Francis Drake's favorite watering hole (though there is not much evidence to substantiate the claim), the wood-lined pub is a favorite with tourists, Exeter University students and locals alike.

During the English Civil War (1642-46) however, it is known that Royalist troops were billeted in The Ship.

The pub's latest refurbishment was in the 1990s and the previous fittings were exported to Russia to open an English-style pub there.

There is an extensive menu and good ales on tap. The Ship Inn is directly across the lane from The Royal Clarence Hotel.
