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!

Hallelujah for Ale-lelujah

We popped in for a pint as a resting pointing on a gorgeous costal walk from Craster to Low Newton (approx 7 miles). I had a pint of the Ale-lelujah which is one of the nicest pints of Ale I have ever had, tasted very Christmassy. We didn't eat there but we saw lots of food being served and it looked very tasty.

After a great walk, a lovely lunch

Nothing fancy, just good pub food (carrot and ginger soup, served piping hot) and warmed ciabatta with goats cheese and pesto. The mother in law had a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich which she said was one of the best of its kind. Nice. Food in the evening looked lovely.

Brilliant place

Had lunch here. It was mid-week and very busy, which is always a good sign. Their beer was excellent; both the light ale and the porter. We had toasted ciabatta sandwiches which were very tasty. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a warm, pleasant atmosphere in the pub.

Yeah, very good.

Walked up from Craster with the dog and stopped for lunch. I had a splendid ploughmans and the wife was very pleased with her crab sandwich. It's not spectacular but it is well worth a visit.
