The Ship Inn is located on the banks of the Stroudwater canal and must have been a popular watering hole for bargees and canal workers well over one hundred years ago.

The Citizen: Saturday, May 21st 1988 – Man held after pub incident: Police were called to a Frampton-on-Severn (sic) pub late last night after the landlady was injured. Two police cars were seriously damaged. Officers were called to the Ship Inn after licensee Susan Jones complained that shew had been assaulted. Inspector Brian Farmer said: “A man was coerced outside where two marked police cars and an officer’s private car were damaged. Windscreens, lights and windows were smashed and panels dented.” Mrs Jones was treated at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for bruising but was not detained. A 24-hour pool and darts marathon was taking place at the pub at the same time. “There was no extension of licensed hours and she was not serving drinks.” Said Insp. Farmer. A 25 year-old-man was today helping Stroud CID with their enquiries into the incident.
