Believed to have been an alehouse for over 400 years it's the oldest pub in the area. Now a free house with guest ales.
3 rooms make up the public area;
The bar area in the central room is the heart of the pub with that traditional pub feel and a friendly welcome waiting
In the Music room you'll find Monday's are Bongo Bob's Buskers night, Thursday acoustic music, Saturday & Sundays from 9 regulars play.
Or you can cosy up in the snug for some peace with the real fire place for winter :)
Our pub has socially pro-active regulars with staged plays, local art on display available for purchase and a Cycle Club (Low Lights Chain Gang) meets weekly on Weds at 6:30pm amongst other things!
A traditional pub with a real community of friends, many of them Real Ale lovers, who have joined a long list of fishermen, career sailors, travellers, merchants and ne’er do wells who have populated the cosy, low ceiling bar of the Grade II-Listed tavern in its history.
The Low Lights Tavern is 50 yards up Brew House Bank, from Union Road on North Shields’ famous Fish Quay. The quay itself began life in 1225 as a simple village of shielings (huts) from which the town of North Shields takes its name. The quay was originally located here to serve the nearby Tynemouth Castle and Priory.
