Great pub best about. If your looking for cheap quality beers this is the place to come. If your lucky and come in on the rare occasions the Viking Woody Ginger Beard is in you can relax beside the fire and listing to his complete codswallop. Tails from how he defeated the Scottish with only him and £27 pound he lent 8 months ago. Are my fav how he can do any job better then you.....bit amazing pub proud to call me local

Traditional at its best 🍻🍻
Jan 2020
It’s a bit of a tradition now for me and my partner to have a couple of drinks on a Wednesday afternoon. We normally kick off in here and enjoy our drinks in the little snug . This is one of my favourite pubs traditional and full of character, which provides free food on the counter including soup and pastries on a Wednesday. We have also visited On a fri and Saturday night for the live music 🤟.

We found the fat ox whilst on holiday in Whitley bay
We’d been in one pub and didn’t like it so decided to try the fat ox and were impressed with the feel of the place and the prices which were a lot cheaper than we’re used to. It was busy for a week day and had the atmosphere of a proper traditional pub

Great pub in the centre of town

Highly recommended pub in the centre of Whitley Bay.
We always pop in here on Sunday afternoons for a couple of pints.
The wife and I always find it has a nice atmosphere and is always lovely and warm.
It has a great selection of beers and they're amongst the cheapest in the town.
The staff are very polite and friendly and other customers always seem happy and friendly.
They have lots of large tvs spread throughout the bar to watch live sport but it's never too loud to spoil your trip there.

Great Local Pub!
Oct 2018 • Couples
Been going here for approx 5 years and always been a good local. Now a sports bar but still run by Karen & Mick and a great pub. Very competitive prices and always something going on, sports, music, events. Very friendly staff and they don't stand for any naughtiness so a safe environment for single females and all ages. Dog friendly too, bonus! Pop in for a pint or wine, always a nice reception!

Great Pub, Good Prices
Nov 2017 • Couples
This is a very pleasant pub in a good location in the centre of Whitley Bay. When we visited, the bar staff were pleasant and efficient, there was a nice atmosphere and the other customers were friendly and chatty. The drinks were cheaper than most of the other pubs we go to and there was a good selection to choose from. There was plenty of seating available, however it started to get very busy while we were there, as a football match was due to start.

I would definitely make a return visit to this pub.

Maybe this pub needs a bit of refurbishment. Drinks are served by staff whom I don't think have a clue about pricing. A single measure of spirits with a mixer is £3 20 whilst the fire station which is 20 meters away is £3 70 for a double.
