I will try not to get too boring with these entries - but we are staying for a week just 100 metres away from the pub door. Early evening, warm and has been busy here all afternoon- the queue has gone so we pop in (or rather stay out) for a couple.
Ship Inn - Sea Coal4.00ExcellentAs good as yesterday.
Ship Inn - White Horses4.20GoodNow badged at 4.3% Refreshing.

Mid-evening, just getting dark. No entry to the pub itself due to COVID - but they have erected three covered areas outside to supplement the picnic tables on the green. Two other own-brews on - not noted.
Ship Inn - Sea Coal4.00ExcellentSmooth, thick and oaty.

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.
Ship Inn - Sea Wheat 3.80ExcellentDelicious.
Ship Inn - Pilgrim4.20Good(Now 4.3). Good malty bitter.
Ship Inn - Sea Coal4.00GoodWent well with the fruit crumble.

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, I’m telling you mate I’d 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 “aromatic blonde” and clearly had some unusual flavourings included.

Ship Inn - Newton Gold4.20GoodFull bodied, golden ale in excellent nick.

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.
Hadrian and Border - Secret Kingdom4.30Not Tried
Ship Inn - Sea Wheat 3.80Not Tried

Early Sunday lunchtime - busy already but swift and friendly service. Staying nearby for a week - I will be back.
Ship Inn - Spindrift3.90GoodVery nice pale ale - went well with the Stilton and pear panini.

A marvellous little pub in a beautiful setting. It’s 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
