Welcome to The Ship & Trades
Boasting a stunning marina setting, the Ship and Trades is a unique place to eat, drink and stay.
The contemporary bar, restaurant and hotel overlooks one of the yacht basins at the former Royal Naval Dockyard, with extensive waterfront seating offering panoramic views of the pleasure boats and across the River Medway to historic Upnor Castle.
Visitors can also enjoy the view from inside the Ship and Trades’ wrap-around restaurant with floor to ceiling glazing overlooking the marina. The 15-bedroom hotel also has a comfortable lounge area and two ‘snugs’ for more intimate gatherings. Its décor is inspired by its nautical heritage, as the structure was originally home to dockyard offices and an engineering shop in the late 19th century.
