About the local area

Harton once was its own little village, but as the area grew it merged with surrounding villages to become part of the South Shields town. It still has a village feel, with many original buildings remaining but is just ten minutes from the town Centre and 20 minutes from Gateshead and Sunderland. The pub is surrounded by beautiful scenery including stunning greenery and a beach only five minutes away.
