Everything from walking through the door of the Ship Inn Ouseburn to walking with a stomach full of delicious food was PERFECT! An exceptional Six star rating from Round the World Magazine!
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 content attracting visitors of all ages. Simplicity is key and the Ouseburn area deters crazy parties of ‘Geordie Shore’ fans looking for a wild time in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne true to the reality TV show that gave Newcastle it’s recent ‘wild’ reputation. Parties of stag 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 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 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 fur faces while we were in there and we love anything like that because we’re vegan!
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), the tofu is marinated with delicious flavoring and wrapped in seaweed as well as dipped in delicious beer batter.
I don’t know what they do with the chips but they were the BEST we’ve ever had! Minty mushy peas on the side and homemade VEGAN tartar sauce. What more could you ask for? Cruelty free, delicious and healthy(ish!)
Oh my word, the deserts! 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 and were not disappointed, though we wish we had room in our stomach for the Chocolate tart too! Decisions, decisions.
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!
