About the Pub

After being closed for five months under a cloud of great uncertainty as to its future as a public house, this lively community pub on Birtley high street re-opened over the August Bank Holiday weekend 2015 with the welcome addition of real ale. However none of the other features of the pub were altered. Note the original wooden recently French-polished bar counter in the public bar, the attractive coloured correctly aligned points of the compass glass skylight, the re-upholstered bench seating and two real fire/stoves. There are also separate games (pool and darts) and lounge areas with old adverts for train journeys and railway posters on the walls. Smart, raised beer garden to rear. Toasties available.
