The Tannery is a historic pub that has been a well established local of Hexham for over 120 years. Converted from an operating tannery in the 1800’s, the pub is close to local hearts and is a true hub of the community. It has a cosy feel with quirky décor that includes a wall plastered in pump clips, chesterfield sofas and tables that are named after local dogs. The Tannery offers something for everyone with an extensive drinks selection that ranges from draft beer to cask marque ales and premium spirits as well as a delicious finger food menu.
The trading area is split into two rooms with a back to back bar. The lounge is to the left that has garden themed décor, a gin and cider showcase and features purpose built scrabble tables, dart boards. It has a relaxed feel and is the perfect place to for larger groups of customers to enjoy a meal. It leads out to the hidden gem of a beer terrace to the rear of the pub. The area on other side of the bar is known as Hexhams living room, where guests can enjoy a drink with friends on comfortable sofas but comes alive over the weekend when it stages live music.
This fantastic pub opportunity comes with domestic accommodation that consists of two bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
