With beer gardens finally open again and the sun shining down on us, Teessiders are getting that first post-lockdown sip in their droves, and we all know if it’s not on Instagram, it doesn’t count!
The team at Acquiro Digital have compiled a list of the most Instagrammable beer gardens in Teesside, by analysing hashtags for destinations around our part of the world as well as TripAdvisor reviews.
Scroll down to see the full list, and decide which beer garden you’d like to visit for a cheeky tipple.
1. The Dickens Inn
A firm Teesside favourite, The Dickens Inn has always been a hotspot for Instagrammers.
2. The Scruffy Duck
One of the newest editions to Norton’s bustling bar scene, The Scruffy Duck is Teesside’s rising star, with a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5 and blankets on tap for the chillier days. What’s not to love?
As one of Stockton’s favourite pre-lockdown destinations for live music & special events, Storytellers has a beautiful new beer garden and walk-ins are welcome!

Located on the Tees Barrage, this is Teesside’s biggest beer garden – and they’re dog friendly too!
After being locked down for so long with little to nothing to post on our Instagrams except half-baked banana bread, who can blame us for wanting to document our first steps back into ‘normal life’? So get out there and get Instagramming!
