We were recommended to visit here by several of our friends. So, on the first evening of our holiday we walked down to the beautiful beach and then into 'The Ship Inn'. Absolutely stunning location and all the trappings of a characterful pub - but no!! We ordered our drinks and then enquired about booking a table for later -... More

M and I visited on a sunny and incredibly busy day during the school holidays. Lots of people were sitting outside on the grass so we managed to get a small table inside in the shade. The menu is quite small and obviously focussed on fish, but there were a couple of veggie things to choose from. M and I... More

This place used to be very good (we have visited many times over the years), however standard of food is well down, reception by staff poor, toilets (Gents) disgusting, owners don't care. It had great reviews in national press (and deserved them), but afraid this must have gone to head and they have massively taken their eye off the ball.... More

After the pilgrimage from Craster on a gorgeous September day, any beer and sandwich would taste good. Their own beer surpassed expectations and well worth the walk. As for the food, well it was OK but choose carefully. The toasties are tiny and guaranteed to leave you hungry. We never got chance to sample the crab as they didn't have... More

The pub is in a lovely position which brings in the crowds. We walked from Craster so were looking forward to lunch and a pint. We both ordered crab sandwiches, nothing special, crabmeat on wholemeal bread, no side salad or crisps. Wouldn't hurry back maybe the evening meals are better.

So much to enjoy when visiting Low Newton but the Ship Inn is a must if you want to sample good food and drink plus entertainment on certain nights - however book to reserve a table well in advance. Place is small and rustic but the Lobster and Crab we eat were cooked perfectly with a good choice of local... More

Visited after an atmospheric walk along the beach from Craster on a day dense with mist (haar for the locals) in which we could barely make out the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle even when upon them. Despite the weather, this place was packed, inside and out. Expecting a long wait, we managed to find a shared table and promptly enjoyed... More

Stopped here for a sandwich and a pint. Got our order just in time, 2 o'clock. Sat outside so didn't mind waiting. Toasted Ciabatta with Stilton & pear very good, toasted ham & cheese sandwich was also very good, both came with side salad.
