The Treacle Tap

You know what they say about real ale... it takes a lot of effort to get it right, so if a bar takes this much effort over its ale, the chances are it will put a lot of effort into everything else... and we do. With three constantly rotating real ale hand-pulls, a great range of bottled beers, wines and spirits, plus comfy banquette seating and even a piano, The Treacle Tap is a place to chill out with the paper, enjoy an evening with friends, or sit down to a hearty meal.

Our 5 star awarded kitchen provides quality food all day - from meat and cheese platters, to hearty, locally-made award winning (Great North Pie Co) pie meals.


We also are busy hosting all manner of events - live music, regular book clubs, language conversation groups, craft nights, quizzes, 'Meet The Brewer' evenings ~ check out our 'events' page for details. Most of these are free entry and newcomers are always welcome, as are ideas for new groups.
