THE SHIP INN, STAITHES

A cosy tea-room with a vintage-meets-contemporary twist, serving sexy soups and stunning specials...

Hang out


Sounds like a pub, but it’s not. This is a really cosy tea-room with a vintage-meets-contemporary twist and also some B&B rooms. It’s on the Cleveland Way in North Yorkshire and a good start and or finish stop if you’re doing the Old Nab coastal walk near Staithes.

Decked out

A nice retro feel and vintage things to buy on the wall shelves. Solid, well-loved furniture, a couple of sofas and lots of interiors mags and newspapers to enjoy over food, drinks and cakes. A sweet little cottage garden for when the sun shines.

Sip


Home-made lemonade, quality tea and coffee, plus yummy spritzers.

Food matters

Whatever’s on the blackboard that day. It might be beetroot soup, eggs florentine or lemon and courgette cake. Home-made bread and wholesome and inventive sweet things, too. The cake counter is very come-again with plenty of chocolatey things to tempt you.

We ate 


This is definitely a stop and re-fuel kind of place. We had done the clifftop, blustery walk from Staithes and this is exactly what you hope for at the end of it. It was spicy parsnip soup for some and beetroot soup (£3.50) for others. These were home-made and the beetroot looked stunningly vibrant. The perfect warmer after our exertions with nice home-made rolls. We had lashings of home-made zesty lemonade and the deep purple bilberry spritzer (£1.50) was a fabulous, luscious, health-giving juice. We promised to return another day for cakes and coffee. It’s a great place to hide away and relax for a while; you’ll find lots of really friendly people and a warm welcome.
