Grade 2 listed building which is one of the oldest pubs in Newcastle, dating back to 1880 and is full of character.
The main entrance still retains its original features and inside there is an long narrow wooden bar with a wooden floor.
The decor is a mixture of wooden and mirrored wall panelling and the bar has a high ornate ceiling.
Opposite to the bar there is portraits and pictures of sailing ships on the Tyne.
The front of the pub has beautiful stained glass windows and there is also a small snug area with seating.
There is comfortable high backed leather seating to the rear, which has several caricatures adorning the walls.
The bar is very busy at the weekend but can be quieter through the week when there is a more relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
It can be cramped at times due to the narrow standing area next to the bar. It attracts a steady group of regulars being popular with locals and older clientele.
A good starting place for a night out on the Quayside. The pub is listed in the AA pub guide. Free WiFi throughout bar. External smoking area.
Disabled access to front of the pub is good but can be difficult getting to the rear and the toilets due to the narrow bar. Toilets are small and reasonable.
Price: Reasonable for the Quayside area.
