Built on farmland around 1745, this stone-built inn with rooms has been in the present owners’ family for the past century. Set above the bustling old harbour of Seahouses, the Olde Ship's interior is lit through stained-glass windows and the main saloon bar is full of character, its wooden floor made from ships' decking. A range of whiskies is supplemented by a selection of real ales, such as Hadrian Border Farne Island and Black Sheep. The inn's corridors and boat gallery are an Aladdin’s cave of antique nautical artefacts, ranging from a figurehead to all manner of ship’s brasses and dials. Bar food includes locally caught seafood and home-made soups. In the evenings, starters like salt and pepper squid; or pork terrine with apricot and gherkins might be followed by gammon and chips; chicken and mushroom casserole; or fresh crab salad. Some of the bedrooms have views of the Farne Islands.
