The Middlehaven Public House (former Ship Inn Public House) Stockton Street

  • Description

    The Ship Inn was first licensed in 1831 and is the oldest pub in Middlesbrough still in use. At one time the entrance faced north-west with views towards the River Tees, and the name ‘Ship Inn’ was printed boldly across the east gable. The original entrance was situated in what is now the rear of the premises. There is a new frontage, added at a later date, on the Stockton Street (south-east) side. Alterations over time have changed the building’s appearance considerably, resulting in a mix of styles. The original and narrow Inn is now subsumed within a much larger building. The Ship Inn, however, represents an original survivor of Middlesbrough’s built heritage. It is also a key character feature in Greater Middlehaven.
