The Ship Inn Ouseburn
Everything from walking through the door of the Ship Inn Ouseburn to walking out with a stomach full of delicious food was PERFECT!
We have awarded the Ship Inn Newcastle an exceptional six star rating from Round the World Magazine for Vegan Eats! The Ship Inn is our number one vegan restaurant in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK.
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 hens and stags flock to the city every week hoping for a commercial-music-fueled weekend bender, generally 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 location.
Neighboring bars such as The Cluny and The Cumberland offer regular open mic nights, stand up comedy and live bands, as well as beer festivals and a wide selection of craft drinks.
The all-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 pooches while we were in there.
The food at the Ship Inn Ouseburn is simply incredible. Wow wow wow. Everything on the food menu is vegan.
Main dishes on the menu
The Lucky Fish n Chips (£9), the first of the main dishes we will be reviewing. The tofu is marinated with delicious flavoring and wrapped in nori seaweed as well as being fried in a 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.
Main dish number two is the Aloha Teriyaki Burger which is a Soy and Teriyaki infused pattie with black beans, pickles and house sauce, served with a griddled pineapple ring, signature hand cut chips and rainbow cous cous.
Next is the Suet Pudding – Chestnut mushroom, walnut and ale filling with seasonal greens, mash, roasted veg and gravy.
All main dishes are delicious and we could not pick a favorite.
The deserts were equally as mind blowing as the mains. The Ship Inn dessert menu varies week to week, 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.
During another visit, we chose the Apple Crumble with ice cream.
It’s like we died and went to vegan heaven.

The drinks range is perfect and the craft vegan beers are just as tasty as the food. We had 2 x vegan beers (£3ish per pint), though bear in mind some of the draft isn’t vegan. Be sure to ask the knowledgeable bar staff or check out the green 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, amazing food and delicious drinks.
