Nice place to have lunch if walking this section of the Northumberland coast, and would recommend sitting outside if the weather is kind enough. Great for those who like a 'real' pint from the on-site micro brewery.

Park your car in the public car park just up from the beach, (parking by the pub is limited to residents only), and it's a short walk to the Ship. Embleton Bay has a wide, sandy beach with the ruin of Dunstanbrugh Castle visible about 2 miles away, and is certainly one of the most atttractive bays in Northumbria, if... More

Great place to call into if you are walking along the coast between Embleton and Beadnell. Called in on a couple of occasions whilst on holiday in October. Tried a pint of Squid Ink and Sea coal as I love stouts. Both of these are ales from their own micro brewery and they were excellent

Its actually a great little pub in a very unique position next to the sea. It always seems very busy. Has a micro brewery with a good selection of different ales. Four of us all had the local crab sandwiches, they were outstanding. I think a lot of people go for the crab, and it seems to often run out.... More

This pub is set in a beautiful location overlooking the stunning Northumbrian coast. Very enjoyable crab sandwiches together with the perfect pint made this a great place to visit.
