Old Ship

The Old Ship, believed to be the oldest public house in South Shields, has a rich history dating back to approximately 1803. Initially serving as a coaching inn on the route between Westoe and Sunderland, it still retains its historical charm with an old mounting stone at the front entrance, a relic from the days when horsemen used it to mount their steeds with ease. This welcoming venue offers a combined bar and lounge area, providing a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for patrons. Additionally, it features a function room on the upper floor, making it a versatile space for various events. As for the beverages, during the last visit on October 22, the Old Ship was serving two types of beer from handpumps - Wainwright's and Hobgoblin. This selection may vary, but it's a testament to the pub's commitment to providing quality drinks for its customers. In summary, the Old Ship is not just a pub, but a piece of South Shields' history, offering a warm, friendly environment and a selection of quality beverages.
