Our last night so we had a rather pleasant dinner here. All tables taken with diners but it thinned out around 9. The waitress had never heard of Dolly Daydream (my previous favourite brew here). Still, another new home-brew on tonight.

Another day, another home-brew on. Mid-evening - the tables are full with diners - the best place is outside with a low sun giving the sea a glorious deep blue tone against a clear, light-blue sky. You can keep your Mediterranean, Iím telling you mate Iíd rather have a Northumberland beach with a good ale in my hand.
Ship Inn - Indian Summer4.40GoodVery lemony, with a hint of liquorice. Labelled as an ďaromatic blondeĒ and clearly had some unusual flavourings included.

What a difference a day makes. Monday evening and just two other customers in. The bar person was making pesto most of the time I was in - using a very loud blender. I sat in the end room and tried to read but was rather irritated. Just the swift one.
Ship Inn - Sea Coal4.00GoodSmooth oatmeal.

A marvellous little pub in a beautiful setting. Itís early Sunday evening and the small collection of customers are pushed into one room, whilst a jazz band fills the other.
Ship Inn - Squid Ink4.20GoodSeems to be listed everywhere as 4.2%, although I thought in the pub I was told 3.8%. Dark brown in colour. A chocolaty Porter-style beer.
Ship Inn - Pilgrim4.20GoodA decent, dark Bitter with a good hop presence (presumably from Pilgrim hops).
Ship Inn - White Horses4.20Not Tried

(Retrospective entry) - just found a diary note of our holiday at Low Newton in 2012. This pub is a real gem just 50 yards from a wonderful wild Northumberland sandy beach; traffic free grassed square outside and it's own micro brewery - we stayed for a week in a cottage half way between the pub and beach - 25 yards each way. Bliss. Very friendly and busy all afternoon and evening with walkers, drinkers and diners.
Ship Inn - Dolly Daydream4.30ExcellentVery hoppy and moorish
Ship Inn - Sea Wheat 3.80Goodlight, refreshing - not much of a bite though
