Located on the wild & beautiful coast of North Northumberland, The Ship Inn, originally known as the Smack Inn was built in the late 1700’s. It stands in the corner of an open ended square of white-washed cottages set around a green and looks out to sea across the beautiful sandy beach of Newton Haven. Run by mother and daughter team Christine and Hannah, The Ship Inn is very proud of its growing reputation for serving good simple food, and for providing friendly welcoming service. We use local suppliers wherever possible, free range meat and fair trade products. We now have our very own micro brewery (the beer travels all of 15ft from brewery to cellar!) producing 20 well acclaimed beers, which are also available in bottles. Lunch is served daily 12-2.30 Evening meals served between 7 and 8 booking essential! We do not take any type of credit or debit card, sorry Well behaved dogs on leads welcome!

To make the most of your lunch you need to walk here from far enough away to work up an appetite! Everyone will tell you to have something crab related but whatever you order here will be superb! If it's cold take a warm coat because you'll want to eat outside whatever the weather. Enjoy!

Seaside Pub Lunch

RobatWynyard, Billingham, United Kingdom
A very busy little pub, set back from the seafront, with an original, quaint interior, not particularly comfortable. The pub sells its own beer, which is good, if a little restricting in choice. The Coal beer is thick & rich. Crab sandwiches excellent, reccomended. Its busy, queues form, it would benefit from a further one or two helpers. Outside seating is available, its cold in March.

Great beer

The location of this pub is lovely. They do amazing beer here, all brewed on site. Always rammed when I've been on sunny days. Food simple but delicious, using locally sourced ingredients.

Fantastic Ale

Nice micro brewery beer

Visited on a walk along the beach from Embleton. Called in twice for a drink both going and coming back from High Newton. The IPA was delightful and the food looked delicious. Very friendly pub and lots of dog walkers welcomed.
