Traditional old Newcastle pub in an elevated position overlooking the River Tyne.

The pub has a small semi-circular bar with a wooden floor. From the main entrance there is a small raised area with some tables and chairs and high stools next to the bar.

This leads through to a lower area with additional tables and chairs. There is also some high stools next to the windows at the front of the bar where you can admire the excellent view of the Quayside.

The decor is quite basic with mainly posters and advertisements of live music events covering the walls.

Regular music is on play at most times with a free jukebox situated to the left hand side of the bar playing an eclectic range of music.

The pub is popular with locals, students and visitors to the Quayside. Outside the pub to the left of the main entrance there is a small beer garden with wooden tables and benches.

There is an additional area on the bank opposite the pub, where drinkers often congregate. Quiz night every Wednesday.

Disabled access to main bar very good but difficult to the toilets which are down a flight of stairs. Toilets are small and reasonable.

Price: Moderate.
