The Ship Bar & Cafe in Newton Abbot town centre had their grand opening Friday 04th June 2010. It was an invite only event to celebrate the pub finally opening after being closed for the past 10 months.

The Landlady Miss Phoebe Warren, (who is the youngest local landlady aged only 20) bought the lease 6 months ago and has been working really hard in this time to completely refurbish the inside and out. With a brand new lay out, friendly staff, and a fresh new out look, combined with a complimentary glass of punch on arrival, free buffet and a jamming local brand named Breman, the night was a real success.

Statement from local customers- Gary Bennett and Petra Williams from Wolborough Hill, Newton Abbot.

Awesome location, vibrant new pub that will set the standard now in Newton Abbot. We have been looking for somewhere fresh and exciting that is family friendly, and we have found it here and will be coming back.

Statement from out of town customers- Elizabeth Smale, Victoria Cox, Ashton Moyse, Faye Rowles and Lynette Earnshaw, who travelled all the from Brixham, Paignton, Torquay and Kingskerswell.

We have had a really good night tonight, it makes a real change to go somewhere new and dynamic, everyone has been really friendly and welcoming and we got served straight away which was a bonus! We will definitely be coming again to see the live music and have a great night out.

Statement from the Landlady- Phoebe Warren.

We have worked so hard over the last 6 months and are so pleased that all the hard work has paid off tonight. It has been a really fantastic night and a real success. I am so pleased with the turn out, loads of people came along to support us and I cant thank them enough. The pub is now officially open and I want to invite everyone to join us for a drink!

After speaking to the guests tonight who had a brilliant night, The Ship is definitely an upcoming hot spot of Newton Abbot.
