15+ North East Pubs & Restaurants Where You Can Pre-Book An Outdoor Table


North East Pubs & Restaurants Where You Can Pre-Book An Outdoor Table

 For those who are not ready to dine inside a pub/restaurant yet, I asked my Facebook & Instagram followers for some of the best places in the North East you can pre-book an outdoor table. 

Please note, this post was first published in Summer 2020 and protocols may have now changed. For a more up-to-date post, please click here to read my guide to North East Pubs and Cafes with heated or covered outdoor spaces which was published in October 2020 or check out the Outdoor Dining section of my Instagram highlights for new places updating outdoor space in Spring 2021. 
Some procedures may change so always check details directly before booking / heading out to avoid disappointment. Pre-booking is important to me as I would hate to turn up somewhere and for it to be busy / us to have to hang around for a table etc.... 

 North East Pubs & Restaurants Where You Can Pre-Book An Outdoor Table 

The Beehive Pub, Earsdon

The Beehive in Eardson is a fantastic country pub serving homemade food. They have lots of outdoor space in their beer garden and secret garden. Their Facebook page states you can pre-book tables outside by calling 0191 252 9352. 


Jesmond Beach Box

This summer, there is a pop-up beach in Jesmond behind Holy Hobo (near As You Like It). They claim to be Newcastle's biggest beer garden. Expect a pop-up beach, street food stalls, market stalls and more. They are family & dog friendly too. Pre-book here. 


The Derry, Long Newton

The Derry in Long Newton looks like a gorgeous pub. You can pre-book outdoor tables and dog houses (cute) via their website. 


Blacks Corner, Boldon

Blacks Corner is a beautiful wine bar and deli in South Tyneside. You can pre-book a garden table via their website. 


Caboose, Blyth

Caboose in Blyth has a beautiful decked area overlooking Blyth Harbour which can be pre-booked by calling 01670 359 851. 


Rileys Fish Shack, Tynemouth 

I absolutely love what Rileys are doing. You pre-book (and pre-pay) a deckchair on the beach for £25 per person online and will have your own little area with a small table/parasol/fire pit (depending on the weather and time of day). Kids are welcome to bring a blanket and sit on the beach to keep costs down. You then have £25 per person to spend on gorgeous seafood. I think this will probably be the first thing we do.  


The Blackbird, Ponteland 

The Blackbird is a popular pub in Ponteland. We love it there. You can pre-book tables outside in their beer garden online or book a table in their brand new outdoor tipi by calling 01661 822684. 


Woodsman's Arms, Gateshead

The garden and outdoor area at The Woodsmans Arms is absolutely gorgeous. It is one of my favourite pubs and I definitely recommend their Sunday lunches (go for the beef brisket - you won't regret it). Garden seating can be pre-booked via their website. 


Hive Coffee Company, Jarrow 

Outdoor seating is available to pre-book at Hive Coffee Company which is a gorgeous cafe next to Jarrow Hall. The gardens are pretty and it is a lovely spot. Call 07715 215476 to book. 


Beamish Park Hotel 
Beamish Park Hotel has a lovely giant tipi, fire pits and outdoor bar in their grounds. You can just turn up for drinks or pre-book a table for dining in the tipi by calling 01207 230666. 


STACK, Newcastle 

You can pre-book a table/bench online for STACK Newcastle with a deposit which is then redeemed in food and drinks tokens. There are lots of different food vendors to choose from and bookings are for a maximum of 10. Kids are welcome before 8pm 


South Causey Inn, County Durham 

South Causey Inn has caused a bit of controversy with this one as they are the only venue I can see in the North East who are charging for outdoor seating. Their bubble pods do look lovely and seem to offer a premium experience, but be aware there is a charge of £20-£30 which is not redeemable against food/drinks. Call 01207 235555 to book.  


Anglers Arms, Sheepwash

You can pre-book outdoor tables for drinks or food at the Anglers Arms and it overlooks a playpark for the kids and is a lush place for a walk. Call 01670 825 795 to book a table. 


KafeNeon, Newcastle 

KafeNeon has always been a popular spot for al fresco dining and is a good option if you fancy some Greek mezze in the sunshine. Call or email KefeNeon@Yahoo.co.uk to book. 


The Feathers Inn, Hedley on the Hill

The Feathers Inn has quickly adapted to build an outdoor kitchen and seating. It looks fab! Call 01661 843607 to book. 


Bay Horse, Hurworth

The Bay Horse is a gastro pub in Huworth with a beautiful outdoor garden which can be pre-booked online. 


Brinkburn Street Brewery 

Brinkburn Street Brewery in Ouseburn are renowned for their Sunday Lunches and craft beers. You can pre-book an outdoor table by calling 0191 3389039. 


The Jolly Fisherman, Craster 

The Jolly Fisherman has built new outside booths in their beer garden which can be pre-booked by calling 01665 567461. We absolutely love this pub and once spotted dolphins from their beer garden. 


Outside Tables For Walk-Ins 

Many of the places mentioned above will also accept walk-ins. Readers also suggested the following options but as far as I can see, their outdoor dining cannot be pre-booked.  Might be an option if you are passing and spot an empty table though. 

For more options, make sure you check out my guide to North East Beer Gardens with play areas here.
