Whitby Brewery Tap

New brewery tap in the Brewery’s new premises, standing in the shadow of Whitby Abbey, overlooking the sea. A selection of Whitby Brewery’s beers are on hand pull. You can park your car close by, or you can climb the 199 Abbey steps to get there. 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. Three handpumps, serving a selection of Whitby’s six beers are on sale. A door leads into the brewery viewing area where you can get a good look at the brewery https://www.whitby-brewery.com/

Waiting Room

Whitby’s smallest, and first, micropub provides an enjoyable alternative night out. No lager nor spirits, no jukeboxes nor TV. Dogs are welcome. Meet up, chat and drink good beers and ciders without being bombarded by technology and noise. The six-yards-square pub gets busy at times, so don’t be disappointed if you cannot even get in!
