We went here 2 days running after our family beach walk.. Food looked great though we did not get our timing right so did not Eat. The bar is wonderfully open, warm and friendly. Stripped wooden floors and a roaring fire were idylic. They made me a giant, spicey tomato juice. There is a micro brewery that had 4 different... More

Stopped here for lunch after a walk along the coast from Craster. I'd had the place recommended by a friend and also read the reviews on here. On a Monday lunchtime in November I got there about 12 and by 1 the place was heaving, possibly with more dogs than people! I had a gorgeous crab salad stottie (large bread... More

On our annual pilgrimage to the Northumberland coast we used the Ship twice. Once just my wife and I walked there from Beadnell for lunch, you have to be prepared to queue on a day with good weather but the efficiency of the food service once the order was placed was excellent. As usual the brewed on site beers were... More

The place is nice and has a good selection of cask beers, but the place is just too small. Tables are cramped in to accomodate more customer's, but this results in very little space to eat a meal. It feels like they are trying to fit you in and it is not relaxing at all. The food was ok, if... More

It's not easy to have dinner in the Ship. They have a small kitchen & take a limited quantity of bookings. I have not had such good food for a long time. Beautifully cooked. The steak [local] melted in the mouth. Also they have music& cinema nights which I've not been lucky enough to catch. Next time. Fantastic beers brewed... More

Had a walk on the beach with the dogs which was great and then went to The Ship following a recommendation. Had Kipper Pate and a Crab Sandwich and both were absolutely fabulous. Will definitely tick this box and go there when next in the area. Not to be missed.

Amazed how busy this place was - seems to have a great reputation. We visited mid-week in early November (outside school holiday) and at 12.05 it was full! Fortunately a lovely sunny day and we sat outside with more than a dozen other people. Limited lunch menu but what was on it was lovely. And for us, best of all,... More
