Nautically themed and fully residential The Olde Ship sits boldly above the tiny fishing harbour of Seahouses. Historic as it is with its strong local maritime connections, The Olde Ship continues to maintain its high traditional standards in the face of changing modern trends. Thoughtfully equipped, tastefully decorated bedrooms, realise our recent harmonised rating of four stars. Popular bar foods include locally caught sea produce, freshly made sandwiches, delicious homemade soups and wholesome daytime meals that extend into the evenings.
The conviviality of the customers and the friendly efficiency of our staff make the Olde Ship Inn one of the most pleasant and memorable places to stay. Indeed small through the Olde Ship is, we are modestly proud that our inclusion in a number of varied nautical and international guides in well founded and not without some little merit.
The main saloon bar has tremendous character lit by stained glass windows and in winter by the welcoming glow of an open fire.
Adjoining the main bar is another-snug, low beamed, “The Cabin”. The pub is a veritable sea museum. The scrubbed wooden floor is constructed from pine ships decking while the walls are festooned with a wide variety of nautical artefacts, model fishing boats and a replica of Seahouses lifeboat The Grace Darling. Figure heads, diving helmets, pulling oars, fish baskets, brandling irons, lamps, all add to the unique ‘fee’ of circumstances that was only too prevalent many years ago. Overlooking the Harbour is a newly developed beer garden with unrivalled views of the boats and the Farne Islands.
