My Sister and Law and I spent three nights in this wonderful old pub in a gorgeous room with sloping ceiling, ensuite and twin beds. We peaked in some of the other rooms on the lower floor, one had a four poster in it!! The staff again were wonderful. My S. in Law had bought a small tree and they didn't mind at all us taking up all the stairs and keeping it in the bathroom. Had the seafood platter a second time!! See previous review. If you are in Seahouses, do not miss this place....Lastly, it is also one of the cleanest places I have ever been in, they have an army of cleaners every morning, we tested out some of the secret places often missed (sneaky) they were spotless, and when you see the amount of memorabilia in the place it will amaze you

Room tip: All the rooms are excellent

We called in to have a meal on Halloween.Children are only allowed in two of their rooms.We enquired about food at 5.30pm but were told they didn't begin serving food until 7pm.We stayed and had a drink and probably would have waited but were told we would have to change seats as the table we were at had been previously booked.If we had ordered food we were told that the people Sat at the next but one table to us would have to move to accommodate us.As this seemed a lot of hassle we decided not to wait.But the staff were lovely and we will know next time to book.
A quirky pub that has to be seen to be believed.

Great shame that this one night stop over in this lovely little pub was spoilt by the Owner!

Aggressive, rude and very impolite - what a shame and a great disappointment.

We enjoyed a lovely meal and nice beer - but The Owner has no manners and was very very rude

Thank you for your nice comments about the food and beer, but you fail to mention the reason why I came across as aggressive in your opinion. A member of your party removed an artefact which was securely fastened to the wall by chain and then proceeded to dismantle it. At the Ship we pride ourselves on all of our memorabilia and we have done for the last four generations. We thank you again for your nice comments.

I loved the feel to this old inn. We were made to feel welcome by the many bar staff working there at the time of our visit. We went for Sunday lunch but went a couple of times later in the week just for the atmosphere. We particularly liked the little horse-shoe of seats beyond the bar.

Food was good value and home-made and service was great. Highly recommended, even if you only pop in for a pint of Black Sheep.

Absolutely loved this place. My husband I were staying at seahouses for a short break and booked a meal here on the second night of our stay. I had olives to start and a fantastic crab salad for my main meal. It was gorgeous with loads of fresh crab. My husband got chicken liver with whisky pate to start and fish and chips for his main meal. The portions were very generous and if you are a malt whisky man like my husband then you are spoilt for choice with the whisky menu available. Big thanks to Heather our waitress for the night. She made feel welcome and had a good laugh with her. Very friendly cosy little pub. Will return in the future.
