A little pub history

The Captain's Wife was originally Sully House, a house originally owned by a captain. Legend has it that when his wife died, her body was kept in a box that was mistaken for treasure and stolen. A small fleet of fishing vessels were located at Swanbridge harbour and it is likely that that the row of cottages, that became the pub, were later the traditional homes of the local fishermen and their families.

Make a day of it

Right on the shore overlooking the waters of the Bristol Channel, The Captain's Wife has a good tale to tell. Pirates and smugglers visited Sully Island which can be reached (with care) from the pub during low tide.
