We had a pleasant afternoon here watching folk bands and clog dancing. Quite a surprise to me. The place is kind of tucked away near to Byker Bank. A great selection of beers and super friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

An exceptional range of local beers, some, distractingly priced in 2/3 pint measures, which were well kept. Renowned for local live music acts too.

This is a proper pub, with a great vibe. They have a selection of good ales and the food is also very reasonable. If you can get along to one of their special music nights or afternoon 'mini festivals' in the sun, you will certainly...More

Great pub, its a fantastic place if you like a real ale. I've stayed here twice now and the rooms are great too - a lot of character and a good size. The full cooked breakfast delivered straight to your room is excellent.
