Village Crossing, Billingham, TS23 1AF

Recently opened on 2nd February 2018, this former funeral parlour and village co-op is now a modern, contemporary micro pub, where church pews meet leather sofas, and photographs of yesteryear adorn the walls. Aptly named, as the pub is located at the pedestrian crossing on Station Road in Old Billingham, so the chances of getting run over, after a boozy session, are marginally reduced. Clean, bright and airy, a genuine welcome is assured from the friendly manager. Four 'Locale' beers are currently being served alongside two real ciders. Card carrying CAMRA members are afforded a 20 pence discount on both halves and pints. Ideally situated on both the X9 and 36 bus routes, though it is a bit of a hike from the railway station.

This popular large pub is named after a 19th-century railway industry magnate, who was a company director of the world's first public railway, the Stockton & Darlington.

Pub grub is served all day everyday. In November 2017, after a short period of closure, new owners took over and continued with, more or less, the same underlying Wetherspoon's formula, but without having the bar adorned with the former owner's national brands.
