“A friendly local pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had a very nice dinner at this pub. We also went back a couple more times just for a drink. They had a good selection of beers and an interesting menu. It was a good place to sit and chat with people at the next table or have a quiet meal.

“Pub food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Nice old Pub. Good local food & drink. Gets busy so might be an idea to book first or be prepared to wait for a table,you won't be disapointed.

“A very nice place tp visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We have been to the Old Ship at Seahouses on a number of visits as its one of our favourite pubs in North East. No TV no music but a great atmosphere that will remind you of what pubs used to be like a few years ago. The Restuarant menu is varied and has lots of choices including Ale Pie but you can only order meals at peak times of the day and evening. Lots of small rooms and different areas to eat in at the back of the building with children not allowed in the main bar. So head for the Cabin if you have children with you. Its a great place to go to when you return from the Farne Islands boat trips . The Old Ship Inn overlooks the harbour where the fishing boats return with lobsters and crabs fish etc. Its nice to view the daily catch and probably reason why you have a good choice of Fresh Fish on the menu. Even if you just fancy a pint of real Ale this is the place to go . The main bar has walls full of amazing sea faring memorabillia hanging from every wall so just sitting and looking about and taking in the atmosphere with a blazing fire is a joy.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were staying in Seahouses for a week and dined here twice, would have been more but it was busy. The Cabin was great for us with 2 children ( 16 and 11) and the staff there were excellent.

You have to book as this is very popular, would recomend the Steak and Ale pie but dont eat too much before as there is a lot!

“Lovely food”

Fortunate to get a table in this popular inn. Informal dining with good choice and value for money. Food was hot and well cooked; most enjoyable!
