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!

From the outside the pub looks a bit lived in, inside needs a lick of paint too. but the food is brilliant and booking is definitely recommended has gets booked very quickly has it's just so good. plenty of outside seating on a warm day. very short walk to fantastic Embleton beach. enjoy :)

Interesting pub with a small bar this very popular. Good selection of beers. Great beer garden overlooking the harbour.

Heard and read so much about this place had to sample some of their food. First of all big disappointment we had set our heart on the crab but was informed they were off the menu due to the fact they were not being caught. Not the Ships fault, chose other food which was served swiftly and delicious would next time visit to sample the evening food.

Traditional pub with good food.

Came here for lunch. Small pub - nice cosy atmosphere. Bar staff very friendly. We had a couple of pints of the local bitter which was good. Crab stottie was tasty and a good size, as was the kipper fishcakes. Just be aware that you may have to queue in high season and there are dogs allowed. You can eat indoors or outdoors - great views of the bay.

Nice pint near the beach

The pub is right on the beach and is dog friendly. They do lobster which looks amazing! We had their own lager which was brewed in their micro brewery
