Members of the Tyneside and Northumberland Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) voted in the various geographical, pub, club and cider categories for this year’s branch accolades.

The establishment near Telford Bridge was the top pub in the what CAMRA classed as the south east area and it beat the other area winners to receive the overall county title.

In addition, it was voted the best cider pub in the south east area.

The Office has been open for just over two years. It offers a range of ales from local brewers as well as some from other parts of the country.

Owner and landlady Andrea Johnson said: “I was gobsmacked when I received the news and I was really emotional for the rest of the day.

“The support from our customers has been brilliant and overwhelming from day one.

“Winning awards such as this makes us feel that everything we’re doing is worthwhile.”

The Tap and Spile in Manchester Street, Morpeth, was the south east area runner-up.
