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!

Great pub in picturesque location

Dorothy B,
Fantastic seaside pub who brew their own beer-you must try ' Dolly Daydream'-it's a great pint-agree sandwiches are very good and a virtual meal. Lovely holiday atmosphere and very helpful staff.

Very popular walker pub

Great place to stop when walking along the coast. Beautiful location with outside tables overlooking sea within the horseshoe of surrounding buildings. Interior stoned walled and wooden floor. Good range of lunchtime food. Ham and salad stottie with chutney ( large fresh bread) served very quickly. Unlike actually getting served as yet again quite a wait in queue. Problem was the time it took for the one person serving to make all the coffees! Own brew beer was pretty good though. NB No parking near pub so have to park in car park about 200 metres away up the hill.

Great Little Pub.

Had lunch here during a recent walk up the coastal path.Very tradiional small bar area though plenty seating was available inside also a lovely sheltered outside area with lots of tables etc etc.Great choice of beers and a good choice of fresh local produce within the menu .Both our choices were lovely well cooked and presented.Service was friendly and welcoming.

Outstanding pub

Ray G,
Best crab sanwiches on the planet (seriously). Kipper sandwhiches also the best, All washed down with a pint of their own brewed beer, squid ink is my favourite, but you can have a third of three different beers, heaven!

Excellent beer and excellent kippers

Maioha, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany
Four of us had an excellent lunch at the Ship Inn. Three chose one third pint tasting glasses of the three house beers - one pint each, two chose the kipper paté with toast and two a kipper with toast. Both dishes were excellent as was the beer. The 'wow factor' was sitting outside in glorious sunshine with a magnificent view out to sea. We shared a large table with three other people and our conversation further enhanced the occasion.
