Let's Sail Away


The Ship Inn is a perfect little place in historic Stonehaven with many seats inside for rainy days and outside for the sunny months. I stopped there on my way back to Aberdeen for a mouth watering lunch after a walk to Dunnottar Castle


Inside the menu I found a good but not overwhelming selection with a few traditional dishes that are considered pub food in Scotland, such as fish and chips. I would say that if you are traveling to Scotland this, haggis, deep fried Mars bars, and whiskey should be things to definitely try.  


I decided to start with Cullen Skink, this proved to be everything I needed after a hike. Warm, tasty, not very heavy and with the right amount of local haddock. 


Gourmet Ship Inn Burger with smoked applewood cheese, grilled bacon, beef tomato, baby gem lettuce and a battered onion ring, I have to say... I am not a hamburger girl but I had a bite from my companion and... It turns out I am a hamburger girl, The Ship Inn Hamburger Girl to be precise. Meaty, juicy, not overdone and not greasy with delicious tomato and lettuce - ticks all my boxes. If this hamburger would take part in online dating he would be my match. 



You cannot go wrong with garlic king prawns so it was my safe choice. I have never had a chance to try them with beetroot creme fraiche and at first I was not convinced. However, combined with a crispy pastry cup it was proven to me once more that The Ship Inn team knows their boat or should I say food.


There was no other choice other than to go with a sea theme and it works. Simple, clean with blue accents are pleasant for the eyes. I wonder how this place would look at night or during a sunset. I would expect it to be a very lovely and an intimate place for a romantic dinner for two. If you enjoy Stonehaven a lot you can also stay for a night at the Ship Inn. I wonder how do the rooms look like and what views the have. I bet it is fantastic. Romantic dinner followed with breakfast? I would not say no.     


The Ship Inn is a popular place for tourists and locals alike, and now it is on my list of places that I will be back to.  
Do you like sea theme and pub food?

  1. New follower here, via the Abzmeet group. Just wanted to say hi! :)

    I think I've visited here before, with its pretty view overlooking the harbour. Your pictures are so good -- I don't even eat meat or seafood, but it all looks so yummy!

  4. I've only been to Scotland once but I loved it, I'm definitely going to go again. I haven't been inside a Scottish pub nor tried any Scottish food but it's something I'm very open to trying! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Next time you have a chance try Scottish pub food. It's very homely and comforting - much needed during winter!
