During summer the Brewery and Tap can also be accessed using the Whitby Town Tour Bus. But do not be worried if you are concerned about actually getting in. Though there's only room for about eight people, when it gets full, drinkers just overflow into the brewery itself, or drink in the pleasant outdoor courtyard.

Duke of Cleveland, Hartlepool Headland, TS24 0ND

Wonderful historic Grade II building saved from rack and ruin by current owners, two brothers who refurbished the building themselves. What started as a hobby has turned into a labour of love.
