Originally dating back to 1885, the pub was tastefully and extensively renovated when reopened by the former Jarrow Brewery in 2011, after lying dormant for over two years.

Now owned by Camerons. A long and narrow wood, chrome and glass bar holds 12 handpulls serving at least one Camerons beer and more than six guests, plus two ciders and a Perry. Long narrow lounge to the side of the main bar. Pub photographs abound throughout the pub, both upstairs and downstairs. Various social activities take place throughout the week Monday is quiz night from 8pm and there is a buskers night every Wednesday from 8.30 pm. In addition, Tuesday is video games night while a writing group meets Monday evening and Tuesday lunchtime. There is a Tapas restaurant upstairs, open Wednesday – Sunday.

The Ship Isis is the current runner up in our annual Sunderland and South Tyneside “Pub of the Year” competition. Also the current Sunderland “Cider Pub of the Year”

We thank the Ship Isis for their support as a festival partner.
