About Us

Combining traditional ale brands, multi-award winning chefs and modern thinking, the Beehive Inn of Earsdon is under new management and is ready to become your new favourite local.

In view of St. Mary’s Island and the golden Longsands of Whitley Bay, whether it’s a lazy Sunday lunch, a quick drink after work in the pub’s one acre secret garden, or watching the match with friends, The Beehive has it covered.

Running alongside its brand new and extensive range of high-quality, no-nonsense pub grub, the Beehive will now offer throughout the year a feast of live entertainment; including regular comedy nights and music events, featuring some of the region’s hottest emerging talent.

The pub is managed by Sean Kelly and his partner Joanne Curgenven, formerly of Whitley Bay’s celebrated Bay’s Bistro, who bring with them a wealth of culinary experience and local food knowledge, and is located between the villages of Eardson and Hartley on the border of North Tyneside and Northumberland.

The Grade II-listed building was built in the 18th Century and became an inn in 1896 and despite it’s recent refurbishment, the pub still maintains its old charm and character.

The ancient low wooden beamed ceilings have survived the recent overhaul along with its charming snug dining areas and quaint atmosphere.

With all the uniformity now in fashion in pubs, The Beehive is a really nice surprise. The staff are cheerfully and professionally attentive and the food is a cut above normal pub grub.
