Everything from walking through the door of the Ship Inn Ouseburn to walking out with a stomach full of delicious food was PERFECT! An exceptional six star rating from Round the World Magazine for Vegan Eats!
The Ship Inn and Ouseburn
The ambiance of the Ship Inn Ouseburn is typical to that of a British hideaway pub and to the surrounding Ouseburn area. Ouseburn is notoriously quirky, cool, relaxing and hip, attracting visitors of all ages. Simplicity is key and the Ouseburn area deters parties of ‘Geordie Shore’ fans looking for a wild time in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne that has earned it’s recent ‘wild’ reputation as a result of the reality show.
Parties of stags and hens flock to the city every week hoping for a commercial-music-fueled three day bender, sticking to the areas of the city known as the ‘Bigg Market’ and the ‘Diamond Strip’.
Ouseburn ,on the other hand, is an escape from the madness due to it’s perfect off-the-beaten-path tranquil location.
Neighboring bars such as The Cluny and The Cumberland offer regular open mic nights, stand up comedy and live music, as well as beer festivals and a wide selection of craft drinks.
The Ship Inn Ouseburn and their vegan menu
The staff at the Ship Inn Ouseburn are simply the friendliest people you would ever hope to meet, and the fact that they allow fur babies to dine beside their best friends in harmony is a big bonus to the experience. We met a couple of friendly fury faces while we were in there and we love anything like that because we’re vegan AF!
The food at the Ship Inn Ouseburn is simply incredible. Wow wow wow. Everything on the food menu is vegan. We opted for the Tofu ‘fish’ and chips (£9) as our main. The tofu is marinated with delicious flavoring and wrapped in seaweed as well as being plopped and fried in delicious crispy beer batter.
I don’t know what they do with the chips here, but they were the BEST we’ve ever had!
Minty mushy peas were dolloped beautifully on the side as well as scrummy homemade VEGAN tartar sauce.
What more could you ask for? Cruelty free and simply delightful!
Oh my word, the deserts! They were equally as breath taking! The desert menu varies week to week, and while we were there, we saw two options on the chalkboard: ‘Berry crumble and custard’ (£5) or ‘Chocolate and peanut butter tart’ (£5).
We opted for the Berry Crumble with custard and were not disappointed. We wished we had room in our stomach for the Chocolate tart too but that’s just another excuse to head back there in a hurry!
The drinks are just as tasty as the food, we had 2 x vegan beers (£3ish per pint), some of the draft isn’t vegan (Guinness is sold), be sure to ask the knowledgeable bar staff or check out the vegan labeling on the pumps.
If the delicious vegan food doesn’t get you down there, the Ship Inn Ouseburn offers a wide selection of board games, help yourself and have a good time with good people, good food and good drinks.
We will be back again for the delicious looking ‘Aloha Burger’! If only we had more than one stomach!
