The Ship Inn

Northum­ber­land

Olive - - EAT -

Lo­cal lob­ster and kip­pers, live folk-mu­sic nights and a wood burner make this white­washed pub close to sweep­ing beaches and iconic cas­tles, a must-visit pit stop for weary Northum­ber­land coast walk­ers. Run by Chris­tine Forsyth and her daugh­ter Hannah for the past 20 years, The Ship Inn at Low New­ton-by-the-Sea near Al­nwick brews its own beer in an on-site mi­cro­brew­ery. Close enough to the rocks to hear seals call­ing, the pub serves meat from neigh­bour­ing farms, and fish and seafood from lo­cal day boats. A typical din­ner might kick off with Peel­ham Farm salami, chorizo and air­dried ham and con­tinue with lo­cal mack­erel fil­lets marinated with soy and lime, served with a fen­nel and rocket salad.

It’s per­fect fuel for walk­ers re­cov­er­ing from ex­hil­a­rat­ing coastal ram­bles such as the National Trust walk from Low New­ton to Craster – home of the leg­endary kip­pers. The walk passes the ru­ins of the iconic Dun­stan­burgh Cas­tle and Em­ble­ton Sands, and is no­table for its mi­grat­ing birds in au­tumn and spec­tac­u­lar light in win­ter. Al­ter­na­tively, the walk to the vil­lage of Bead­nell takes in New­ton Pool Na­ture Re­serve in the Northum­ber­land Coast Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty. ship­innnew­ton.co.uk
