Nightcap, just before 10. Still light at this time of year but no other customers. They were sweeping up - so I sat outside and looked at the North Sea doing an impression of a mill pond. Unusual.
Ship Inn - Pilgrim4.20Good

Mid afternoon after a walk to the wonderful Dunstanburgh Castle. Mainly drinkers outside on the green. Much more relaxed than last night.
Ship Inn - Sea Coal4.00ExcellentTop class dark ale.
Ship Inn - Sea Wheat 3.80GoodSounds like people are asking for seaweed when they order this.

Back up north for a week. Welcome tranquility in this idyllic spot after a long drive. Evening meal. This pub has changed over the years and is now rather food based, but it still brews its own ales and the location remains superb with plenty of outdoor seating on the traffic-free green facing the bay.
Ship Inn - Dolly Daydream4.30Good
Ship Inn - Ship Shape4.00AcceptableVery pale and rather lifeless. I notice it went off shortly after I’d had this so I assume it was the end of the barrel.

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.
Ship Inn - Red Herring3.80Not Tried

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.

Early evening - just filling up with diners including a minibus of old chaps. New beer on today (Gold) rather good.
Ship Inn - Red Herring3.80GoodVery nice.
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.
