I've been coming here for a few years and it's one of my favourite pubs in the UK. Their crab sandwich is the best anywhere (much better than another local pub that is supposedly famous for their crab sandwich). I will be going again tomorrow...More

A lovely walk along the superb beach and some bird watching followed by a pint brewed by The Ship and a freshly madeCrab Stotte make it an excellent and special occasion.Can get busy but worth a wait if you have to.

We always make the journey to Newton by the Sea and the Ship Inn when we are in Northumberland, and especially when we walk along Embleton beach. Especially loved for its fresh Crab sandwiches and own brewed beer!

We stayed in Low Newton for the second year, partly because of the excellent meals at this pub. Al food fresh, especially the crab, and well worth the aggro of having to book. Friendly staff helps to make this a most enjoyable experience.

This is worth the visit as it is like stepping back in time, after a long walk along the beach it's an ideal setting for a lunch.

As far as I am aware this is a small pub with a micro brewery and I do not think it has accommodation to let. Hope this helps
