They’ve all gone Poty

If proof were needed, the micropub is proving that it has settled into firm favouritism by ale drinkers. The Tyneside & Northumberland branch of the Campaign For Real Ale has included several in its 2020 list of Pubs of the Year (PotY). The branch covers such a diverse catchment area both geographically and population-wise that the awards are spilt into sub-regional sections.

Winners are:

Overall Northumberland Pub of the Year: Dipton Mill Inn, Hexham

South West Northumberland: Dipton Mill Inn, Hexham

North Northumberland: The Curfew, Berwick

South East Northumberland: The Office, Morpeth

Overall Tyneside: The Dog & Rabbit, Whitley Bay

North Tyneside: The Dog & Rabbit, Whitley Bay

Newcastle: The Town Mouse and Mean Eyed Cat (joint)

Gateshead: Station East

Northumberland Club of the Year: Comrades Club, Haltwhistle

Tyneside Club of the Year: Heaton Stannington Football Club

Cider Pub of the Year

South East Northumberland: The Office, Morpeth

North Northumberland: The Curfew, Berwick

South West Northumberland: Wor Local, Prudhoe

Tyneside: Owa The Road, Swalwell, Gateshead (pictured).

Martin Ellis, Tyneside & Northumberland Camra branch press officer, says: “Clearly micropubs are making a huge impact on the beer world as they have scooped many of the awards in our area.”

The annual awards are chosen by Camra members and decided on ambience, community values, character, comfort with a welcome to people of all ages – plus, of course, beer and cider quality.

Well done to all on the list – hopefully news like this will blow away any winter blues.
