We've enjoyed visits to The Ship Inn over a number of years, making a beeline for it when we have our annual Northumberland winter holiday. The beer, made in the adjoining micro brewery, is always really good and welcome at the end of a long walk on the beach (or even the walk down the hill from the village's public car park). We booked for dinner this year although the inn wasn't too busy on the evening we were there. Well behaved children and dogs welcomed, but credit/debit cards not - be sure to take cash/cheque book.
The local smoked fish pate was great as a starter, fresh fish for the main course was enthusiastically promoted by the chef/waiter with good reason - it was very delicious - clean plates all round!
The Inn really feels like a trip back in time, the owner is regularly in the bar and more than happy to chat. A friendly little place, almost like being a visitor in a friend's house. Can get a bit frantic when full (in summer/weekends).
Toilets could do with some attention though - clean but freezing cold and needing a refit (although I suppose it adds to the atmosphere?!)
