Walking from Dunsley in Staithes (www.dunsleyinstaithes.co.uk) to Runswick Bay on the Cleveland Way clifftop path last weekend, we followed the recommendation of a guest and made the short detour (400m from the coast) to the Ship Inn in Port Mulgrave. What a wonderful place! Once a pub, it is now a cosy tea shop with antiques for sale. It features eclectic pine furniture and comfy sofas, with nice lighting, newspapers and a warm welcome from owners Jane and Tom Gatson. We had roast tomato soup and a bread roll (£3.50), a good chat and a warm-up. It’s open weekends and Bank Holidays 1-6pm in winter, and most of the time in summer.
