The fries were tasteless and undercooked. The wrap was smaller than a childs portion, being the smallest wrap we had ever seen. The baguette was stale and chewy. Both salads... More

Been a few times now on separate occasions at different times, all I can say is the staff are pleasant and helpful and the food has been great, the dining area is comfortable and cosy. Plenty choice on the menu with good old pub classics and a selection of "buy 2 meals" at a set price. The food comes well... More

Met a few friends in the Ship and Royal for a few drinks on a Friday night, pub seemed quiet, typical pub decor, could do with brightening up and toilet access key was with a group of punters in the pub though sign advised toilet key behind bar.

Many thanks for your recent review, I am very sorry that the food that you received was not acceptable and I am disappointed that you received cold chips and eggs with hard yolks and I agree that the meal should not have been served that way in the 1st place. More

3 of us recently had lunch here whilst in South Shields town centre. Good selection o bar meals on menu. We had grilled chicken, steak & ale pie and egg & chips. The food was hot and very tasty. The reasonable price include a 2 for 1 deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Stopped in at Ship and Royal for a last pint on our way back to the B&B after attending a Rugby World Cup match in Newcastle. We weren't looking for a dance club so glad we saw it. Very nice young lady at the bar, served our favorite UK beer...we were happy. When the manager came to take our glasses... More
