Welcome to The Ship
We’re lucky enough to have not two, but three bank holidays this May. We’re serving up our favourite seasonal dishes alongside our extensive drinks range to quench all thirsts. Join us to soak up the bank holiday atmosphere.
Our Spring Menu is here
A new season means a new hive of activity in our kitchens as our chef ’s cook up some new dishes.
The soft flavours of spring are always something to look forward to and from the taste tests so far, they’re pretty special.
A traditional family-friendly pub
Nestled in the picturesque village of Elswick, The Ship is a local’s haven. Our traditional pub offers old world charm fused with a modern finish throughout the cosy interiors and garden, perfect to enjoy with the whole family.
From sipping a refreshing cocktail under our stretch tent in the garden, to having a meal in our intimate dining room next to the fire, you’ll feel at home and catered for any time of year.
Seriously good pub food
Where freshly prepared pub classics meet indulgent flavours, and irresistible bar snacks pair perfectly with our drinks.
With traditional family favourites, small plates to keep the little ones happy and generous sharers to enjoy between friends, our menu is bursting with flavour and promises to satisfy any craving.
RAISING THE BAR
Our bar is fully stocked with the best selection of your favourite drinks! From world lagers to spirits, wines to cocktails and every tipple in-between.
Join us for a fleeting cocktail with a friend, a quiet pint at the bar, or celebrate the big occasion and start your weekend with high spirits. No matter what you fancy, we’ll have something to tickle your tastebuds every time.
Our suntrap garden is the perfect backdrop to enjoy fantastic food and drink with friends and family alike. With an outside area for the children and a lawn to let their imagination run wild, you can watch the world go by and relax under our festoon lighting.
For your special occasions, you’ll feel whisked away in our private dining area, with space to laugh, drink and dine with all your guests.
With your own snug area, with an open fire and chandelier, you’ll be taken care of, leaving you to bask in the pleasure of an enjoyable evening.
Almost any occasion is possible here at The Ship, both inside and out. We're just at the end of the phone, so give us a call!
