On-site pub, restaurant and micro brewery

The Keel­man Pub and Res­taur­ant is named after the former River Tyne boat­men,  Immor­tal­ised in songs such as “The Keel Row” and “Cushy But­ter­field”. The Keel men trans­por­ted coal up and down the river.  The pub, brew­ery, res­taur­ant and accom­mod­a­tion are a mix of con­tem­por­ary and his­tor­ic build­ings which con­trib­ute to a mem­or­able and excel­lent exper­i­ence.

Enjoy the relax­ing ambi­ence of our bar with our range of fine ales, brewed in the tra­di­tion­al way in the Big Lamp Brew­ery next door.  Our bar and res­taur­ant have a warm, friendly atmo­sphere which is enhanced by the large con­ser­vat­ory over­look­ing the patio, trees and Lodges towards the river.


We serve Break­fast, Lunch, Din­ner and bar snacks in our pub and res­taur­ant.  Choose to eat out­side on the Patio, in the light and airy con­ser­vat­ory, or in the pub

We provide a tra­di­tion­al menu with a range of dishes to suit all tastes.  The menus change on a reg­u­lar basis, ran­ging from pan­ini and snacks to bar lunches and din­ners.
