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.

9 Anchors, Seaton Carew, TS25 1AX

Former flower shop in the centre of the sea front, opened in April 2017.

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. Five handpumps, serving a selection of Whitby's six beers and an occasional guest beer are on sale. A door leads into the brewery viewing area where you can get a good look at the brewery.

Hope & Union, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 1SL

Monk, Guisborough, TS14 6HG

Situated opposite Giisborough Priory, and aptly named as, legend has it, the 12th Century Black Monk frequented the underground tunnel that was discovered during renovations of this old saddlers' shop. The access to what, actually, could have been a priest hole, is now on view, beneath a weight bearing glass cover. This new modern contemporary pub/cocktail lounge/wine bar, where a warming log burner adds to the atmosphere and leather sofas abound, is an upmarket addition to the town's social life and attracts a friendly and wide ranging clientele. Five frequently changing real beers and a cider are served. Not cheap, but as one social commenter posted, "£4.50 a pint does help to keep the idiots out", though, please note, that a pint of real beer is currently priced at £3.35.

Good value home cooked pub food hours have been recently extended to include lunch and dinner, as well as all day availability on Fri, Sat and Sun.
