It’s a bit of a work out to get down Dean Street from town, but it’s worth it. The Redhouse is an old crooked Grade II listed building on the Quayside with amazing views of the Tyne. Settle in by the massive fire, drink quality ales and eat pies, which they are renowned for, get inventive they’re ready for ya especially on Wednesdays which is pie night (two for £10).
The fireplaces are original and the raised part of the pub is rumoured to have been where people were once hanged (wouldn’t want to be on locking up duty). The pub is brimming with character, and with all its different rooms and caves, it’s the perfect place to get lost in… just maybe not alone.
On the drinks front we suggest getting your rum fix here because they’ve got Kraken Caribbean and Bundaberg Rum, which they don’t stock in many places oop Norf. Or if you’re feeling brave, they do a Grand Cru which is 10.6% and fermented using yeast which originated in a trappist monastery in Belgium, we’re into it.
