If you’re an operator with experience of running a high-volume destination pub with a love for all things food, high standards and looking after your team and guests then the Ship at Elswick is looking for a management partner like you. Come and take the helm of this epic opportunity.

The pub

If you could design the optimum pub, you’d create a large car park to fill with guests, an imposing front entrance into a gorgeous, open space with enough seats for everyone to eat and drink comfortably in the bar, next to a roaring fire or a cosy corner. You’d have space for functions and a recently refurbished commercial kitchen to cater for all. In the summer you’d want a light and inviting conservatory leading out to the most beautifully planted garden with a play area for the children and a covered area to shelter from the spring showers.

You’d pick an amazing food offer that delivered on country classics for lazy days in the garden in the sun, or comforting, warming plates if you didn’t go for the epic Sunday Roast. You’d want an eclectic range of beers, gins, and cocktails to compliment the food or for if you just fancied calling in for a pint with your dog. You’d design the Ship!

The Ship epitomises your warm, welcoming country pub experience, whether you’re popping in for a light lunch, a pint after work, or a family meal to celebrate an occasion, you’ll be able to cater to all with your intuitive service style and amazing offer.

Large living accommodation on site is available above this pub.

The Ship will under go a substantial refurbishment

The location

You will find Elswick village steeped in history just off the A585. With a fresh multi-sports area and recreational facilities, the village has contemporary appeal enveloped in history with the Gothic church and spire. These are situated adjacent to the 17th Century nonconformist chapel, which is known to be the oldest in the county. The Ship is one of only two village pubs and the area is well-known for Bond’s ice cream.
