Lunch@The Ship Inn, Low Newton

A long walk from Beadnell across an extraordinarily beautiful Northumberland beach has brought us to The Ship Inn at Low Newton. We are again with our good friends Gino, Cosmo & LN and we are all in need of a beer and some lunch. As in all our visits to The Ship Inn, the place is packed and we are lucky to get a table.

The beer is very good here as they have their own brewery. Pints of Sea Wheat, Red Herring and Ship Hop Ale are poured and enjoyed. LN has a kipper with fresh brown bread & butter. Gino and Rock both have the kipper fish cakes with salad & a stottie. The excellent kippers and kipper fish cakes are locally supplied by Swallow fish of Seahouses. Cosmo has a beautiful homemade spiced vegetable soup. I have the lamb koftas with pitta, salad and mint raitha.

Some of us are hungry for more and I know they do a great apple crumble here. I head to the bar only to find that they have sold out! There is absolutely no apple crumble left and that is the only dessert on the menu. Oh well, another beer then…

Situated in the middle of miles and miles of beautiful coastline, The Ship Inn is a haven for much needed, good quality food and drink. In many ways it is an oasis for beach walkers – I’m so glad it isn’t a mirage!

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
