Committed to serving quality real ales, ciders, wines as well as a good selection of gins and soft drinks,  award winning Old Bay Alehouse is located in the parade of shops in Minnis Road, just a five minute walk from the seafront and the Viking Coastal Trail at Minnis Bay.


Sharing its name with the nearby Old Bay Cottage and Old Bay Church, the premises was H C Johnsons Old Bay Stores in the 1930’s, a family run general stores and Post Office for three generations.

In keeping with the history of the property, Old Bay Alehouse has a subtle 1930’s styling, and is a comfortable and friendly addition to the Micropub scene, as well as being a homely hub for the local community.
