Post pandemic, they seem to have gotten out of the real ale business. I've popped my head round the door a few times in the past few weeks to be greeted by empty wickets.

Got stranded unexpectedly in North Shields, so paid a visit to this place as it sounded the more interesting of the two entries in my (old) GBG. Started off on the wrong foot by going through the first open doors I came to. This landed me up in the conservatory, so I had to negotiate some steps down and through a heavy door marked “Public Bar” in order to find any beer.

There were 4 beers on tap, but they were all of the pale ale type. So I went for the “house beer” Cullercoats Maggie Bank, which was nice enough.

The whole place was pleasant, without being remarkable, with an olde worlde feel and victorian style furnishings. However, it seemed to be geared up to being a music venue with large numbers of posters advertising forthcoming gigs. Thus during the afternoon, there appeared to be only one person besides me in the place. When I came to say goodbye, even the barman had disappeared !

6/10 – reasonable for a quick visit

Re-opens tonight after a minor refurbishment under the ownership of Jarrow Brewery. The Maggie goes from strength to strength!

Good beer range a popular place, well worth a visit.

Opened again just before Christmas under new management. Been in a couple of times. The beer selection is fine and kept well, mainly local breweries with a few guests. Kitchen to re-open soon.
