Located adjacent to the south side of the railway station, it has been sympathetically restored revealing original wooden flooring and panelling. A mosaic floor tiled entrance leads to the Zetland Bar that incorporates some railway themed memorabilia. Small LNER posters, advertising local places of interest, also adorn the walls. The rear Regent's Bar dining room is worth a visit alone to marvel at the exquisitely tiled and mirrored interior, never mind partake of the superb meals that are served there, from breakfast through to an all-day menu, which includes a three course set menu that changes daily. The original toilets have also been sympathetically modernised, still including the original tiled flooring. During the refurbishment, replacement tiles were sourced from the same pottery in Staffordshire that supplied the original tiles in the 1860s. The Zetland could once again become the discerning travellers' waiting room, rather than hanging around the railway station, from where it is a 5 minute walk. Also attracts discerning football supporters, from where it is a brisk 20 minute walk to the Riverside. The more discerning Championship away football supporters have yet to discover Christie's - but that should not last too long. A must visit pub.

NOTE: THE BAR OPENS AT 5PM ON DAYS WHEN LIVE MUSIC IS PROGRAMMED. CHECK WEBSITE FOR DETAILS. This oldest surviving Georgian Theatre in the country began life in 1766 as a touring house on the northern circuit of theatres. After falling into disuse in the 19th century and later a sweet factory in the 1950s, the building was handed over to what is now Tees Music Alliance in 1993, a charitable not for profit organisation operated for the benefit of the community. With support from the Heritage Fund the Grade ll listed theatre has been fully refurbished and expanded to now include a public bar with tasteful interior in keeping with the style of the Georgian Theatre. Tickets for events can also be purchased at the adjacent Lucifers micro bar situated in Green Dragon Yard.

Besides the four real beers and two real ciders, an impressive range of Belgian beers, some familiar, most not so familiar, are served in matching glasses in the continental way. Half pint and third pint glasses are also available, as well as bespoke SMOG tasting tables. Interesting decor, small lending library, friendly atmosphere and dog friendly makes it all well worth a visit. Local CAMRA Branch 2018 Pub of the Year and thus now goes forward as the Branch's representative to the North East Region Pub of the Year competition. Late news. The Smog has now been voted as the 2018 North East Region Pub of the Year.
