Elgood’s is delighted to be brewing once again following the lifting of restrictions in line with the latest government guidelines.
For the moment, we are concentrating on getting our pubs re-opened and the brewery back to full capacity. Please contact our pubs directly for their opening hours.
The retail outlet in our North Brink Brewery office is open, but on reduced hours, please contact us to check opening times before visiting.
The Brewery Gardens, Visitors Centre and Gift Shop remain closed for the time being and we are taking advantage of this shutdown period to carry out essential work to our gardens.
We are saddened to have to announce that due to the new government coronavirus tier restrictions, we have had to once again suspend brewing.
This means that we cannot guarantee supplies to our shops and so, unfortunately, we have had to close them for the time being.
We appreciate that It is incredibly frustrating for all our loyal customers and we thank you for your continued support and custom. Please keep checking our website and local media for the latest news.
The Duck Inn, Stanhoe has received the fantastic news that they have rejoined the prestigious Top 50 Gastropubs in The UK. The Duck first made the list in 2019, coming in at an incredible Number 35 in the list and this year they are more thrilled than ever to have been included.
The list is created by leading industry experts and fellow gastropubs and is regarded as the bible of the best gastropubs across the whole the UK.
HOW THE TOP 50 LIST IS CREATED – https://www.top50gastropubs.com/how-the-list-is-created/
Ben Handley, Chef Patron said, “Being included in the 2021 Top 50 Gastropubs is the best Christmas present we could have wished for, especially after this most awful of years. The Top 50 community are some of the most inspiring and genuine people you could wish to meet. We have a group chat on WhatsApp and the support everyone has shown to each other in 2020 has been heartwarming.
You could offer me a Michelin star, but this is the award that means the most, simply because of the wonderful group of people who are involved across the board. We have made friends for life with so many people from the Top 50, people who are so passionate about the hospitality industry as a whole, their staff, and their communities.
2020 has proved how vital pubs are to communities, so to have been named in the Top 50 of the UK makes it very special indeed.
Our wonderful team here at The Duck will tell you just how emotional I got opening that little brown envelope this morning. It means the world to us.”
Sam Handley, General Manager said, “We are very proud of this achievement, which is all thanks to the wonderful team at The Duck Inn, as well as our suppliers. In this most difficult of years, to receive any commendation would be worth celebrating, however the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs Awards will always be very special to us, there is real integrity about everything The Top 50 team do, and to be counted by them amongst the best gastropubs in the country is a wonderful feeling.”
Very hearty congratulations from all at Elgoods to the wonderful team at The Duck Inn.
Although the brewery and gardens are still closed, we hope to be able to open as soon as the restrictions allow.
In the meantime, we thought everyone would like to see how lovely the gardens are looking just now so here are some photos. We look forward to welcoming customers, visitors and friends old and new in the near future.
Update: 30th November 2020
We are really pleased to be back brewing again, albeit part-time and with a skeleton staff. Our pub tenants have been working hard to get their premises ready to welcome customers again and we have had some very encouraging reports from people who are happy to be able to visit their local.
Our office is open for enquiries 0900-1700 Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.
From 1st December, you can also visit our brewery shop on the above days and we’d be delighted to see you!
Unfortunately, our online shop remain closed for the time being and we are not yet able to open the garden to the public. We have had to cancel all of our brewery events for the foreseeable future, although we are reviewing the situation regularly and hope to have better news soon.
Please look out here and on social media for updates.
