It is understood that S&N have now placed The Ship up for lease, 25,000 for 5 years. Rather a lot for a short time and the amount of work that needs doing. Good luck to anyone who takes it.

A real blow to pub lovers everywhere. I think S&N have a short sighted policy. Past recessions have always displayed strong support by locals for their favourite pubs. Folks have a way of drowning their sorrows and not at home with supermarket booze. Good luck to David and Maxine Andrews.

The Ship at Oldford featured only recently in the Somerset Standard closed at short notice last Sunday 25th January.

David and Maxine Andrews, the managers, said that they were told Friday lunchtime by the owners, Scottish & Newcastle, of the decisionto close.

"It appears that with the credit crunch and cost cutting by Scottish & Newcastle the absorbing of the high start up overheads was no longer viable." said David.
"We are devastated at the decision just when trade is increasing and we were to start serving meals from next week. I can only apologise to those who have booked functions at The Ship and now have to find alternative venues."

Maxine went on to say "We would like to thank all those who have supported The Ship when we re-opened and especially to the Somerset Standard for its support. Today's decision underlines the problems faced by pubs outlined over the last several weeks by the Somerset Standard in its weekly feature on Frome pubs. We wish the best for those remaining open and hope that our next posting will see as friendly a bunch of customers as we have had."
