The Old Ship Inn
Ranked #10 of 18 Nightlife in South Shields
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 May 2014

An old fashioned pub with loads of atmosphere. The choice of drinks is excellent and there is also real ales available. On Sunday lunch time the amount of food on the bar is amazing and all freshly made. This pub is friendly with a lot of locals only too willing to give you all the history of the oldest pub in South Shields along with the odd ghost story. Well worth a visit.

I have lost count how many times I have been to this pub over the years. I have always enjoyed the local friendly atmosphere but I have to say the current landlord is the most miserable that I have ever encountered in any pub. He never makes you feel welcome and rarely speaks, even on the odd occasion when he doesn't ignore you and actually serves at the bar. Such a shame he spoils a good local pub.

This is a traditional pub set in a residential area, on a main road. Lots of car parking if you need it. Selection of real ales. Clean toilets. Good local pub.
