About the Pub

This is the first micropub in Low Fell, owned by the Whitley Bay Brewing Company in Whitley Bay and opened on 12 December, 2019. The brewery also owns another Gilbert & Smith’s micropub in Whitley Bay, which opened on 4 July, 2018. The premises have been previously used as a taxi company office and a bakers. This two roomed glass f ronted micropub is very handy for the bus stop, which is right outside. Manager Sarah Graham previously worked in the brewery’s other two outlets, the original Gilbert & Smith’s and The Brewery pub, both in Whitley Bay. Sarah who is from Whitley Bay was delighted when asked to run the new micropub.The larger front room contains the bar, which has a solid oak bar top. The tables are hand-made with the same oak tops and matching stools and chairs. Apple crates are fastened to the walls. There is suspended lighting throughout. Behind the bar is metal and wooden shelving, using scaffolding planks. In the smaller back room there are wooden topped tables and chairs, the same as in the front room. The toilets are located off this room. It is intended to open a smoking area at the rear of the micropub in the future.There are four handpumps serving three of the brewery’s own cask ales plus one rotating guest cask ale from a local or national microbrewery. There is also one craft keg tap and three keg taps for lager and cider. There are bottled and canned beers from the brewery and other local and national microbreweries, plus a selection of Belgium bottled beers. A selection of local gins and vodkas are also available

This is a dog-friendly pub providing free dog treats and water. Children are welcome until 8.00pm. They intend to have wine and cheese tasting events in the future
