Popped in on the recommendation of The Dog & Rabbit, as purchased T-shirt with their name and 2 other pub names. Told that these are known as the Bermuda Triangle, so had to give it a go. Didn’t disappoint. Friendly welcome and the girl serving even held my dog whilst I went to the toilet. Asked what she’d suggest to try and I mentioned I like porters and stouts. Recommended the milk stout which was sensational. I even bought a litre to take home 👌 Get involved people.

Best place for beer in the North East - super service 🍺
Apr 2019 • Couples
We have been regulars in Nord since they opened and the place just keeps getting better and better.

The owners, Nick and Gemma, are knowledgeable and passionate about beer and spend so much time making sure they source the best independent beer from the UK and abroad. They are always on hand to offer advice about the extensive range of beer depending on what taste and flavours you prefer.

As for the beer you can tell they take absolute pride in their stock - there is no place in the region with fresher taps - they are the only bottle shop with 100% refrigerated beer and it really does show. The taps, cans and bottles change at least weekly (quite often daily) which means there is always something new to find.

A wise man once said that imitation is the best form of flattery - and watching the new bars/pubs in the area you can see they want a slice of the pie, but the reality is that their beer will not be able to compete with the quality offered by Nord - I’m a true believer in quality over quantity and know I’m lucky to have Nord on my doorstop.

Great owners, great knowledge, great service, great beer. The equation doesn’t get much simpler. Keep up it up Nick and Gemma 🍺

Must visit for beer lovers! Best in Whitley by some distance.
Nov 2018 • Couples
Absolutely fantastic place and a must visit for beer lovers. Owners (Nick & Gemma) do a fab job of running Nord - Superb choice of beers on draft & in fridges which are updated regularly, cosy setting & you always feel welcome every time you walk in.

With a 7 yr old lad and working away from home, I don't get out enough to use it as a bar regularly but it's my 1st choice as a bottle shop. I'd definitely recommend the 1L Growler or 2L Howler take home options for beer!!

I've also attended one of the awesome beer tasting/talk sessions too.

Amazing range of beer
Aug 2018 • Friends
This place is fantastic! 5 taps which change very regularly to drink in or take a bottle of draft beer home. There's also a huge range of cans and bottles in the fridges. The owners are really friendly. So lucky to have a fantastic independent place like this so close to home.

Always a treat

Met up with my partner and her family. Always a great place to visit! More beer than you could possibly choose from, a few on draught and many in cans and bottles. Would well recommend to anyone.

It is very good for what it is.
May 2018 • Friends
Nord is a bottle shop and small bar selling a range of bottled and cask craft beers.
If you are looking to buy a few bottles to take away, then it is ideal.

There is limited seating and I'd describe the decor and ambience of more like a "beer cafe" than a pub. As such, as I prefer traditional pubs, Nord is fine as a takeaway or for a casual beer, but it isn't the sort of place I'd settle into for a cosy session.

Nice bloke who runs it.

5 stars for craft beer

Simple/basic surroundings but all you need for a good drink. Owners are very nice and knowledgeable. All the mates I have taken there have been impressed too.

Fantastic tap room and bottle shop
Mar 2018 • Friends
Drinking in or taking away, Nord is a great addition to the area. Friendly owners and come truly lovely beers. Watch out though, you might think you're only popping in to buy a take out but you'll end up staying for one or two while you choose.

Love it!

Just so good - lovely atmosphere and beers just so good. Their crisps are very high quality and go so well with the fab draught beers. We can't wait to move back to the coast - only a couple of weeks as we love Nord.
