Large traditional pub that has an excellent selection of real ales and has a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.

The bar that is part of the Sir John Fitzgeralds chain was formerly the old music hall, attached to the Tyne Theatre.

It has a a long bar and a wooden floor and is bright and airy with glass windows to the front.

There is plenty of seating throughout with wooden tables and chairs and some small cosy booths.

Two large domed glass ceiling areas to the centre and rear of the pub are a unique and original old feature.

The walls are adorned with old time music memorabilia and the decor is typical of a traditional Newcastle pub, with wooden panelling.

A large widescreen TV is located to the rear with a small TV to front. Live sports are shown with all live football and six nations rugby featured.

Regular music is on play at most times with a juke box located in the centre of the bar near the side entrance.

The pub attracts a regular crowd of real ale drinkers, locals and people on nights out.

A blackboard displaying forthcoming guest ales is located next to the bar. It is very busy at most times of the day.

Pub quiz advertised in bar - every Thursday from 8.30pm. Dartboard. Free WiFi throughout bar.

Disabled access very good to main bar. Toilets at the rear of the pub are medium sized and in good order.

Price: Reasonable.
