Smart designer bar & lounge that is part of the Cairn Hotel group and which is well suited to the upmarket Jesmond scene on Osborne Road. There are two main entrances that lead through to a large room with a long metallic bar. There is plenty of seating throughout with tables and chairs, and ample standing room. To the left hand side of the entrance there is an area that is used as a lounge diner with a further bar. This has plenty of tables and chairs for diners with some more comfortable lounge seating by the window. There is also a widescreen TV in the centre of the room.

The bar is bright and airy during the day as there are large windows to the front, and in the evening the wooden blinds are drawn giving a more subdued lighting to the bar. The decor is a mixture of blue, purple and cream colours with smart uplighting fixtures and modern pictures on the walls. At the far right hand side of the bar there is a part wooden floor and tiled area with tables and chairs and a huge drop down screen. There is also a small raised area that is carpeted and has comfortable lounge seating and a widescreen TV. A further large drop down screen is also located by the entrance to the restaurant. Live Sports are shown with all live football and six nations rugby featured on 3 big screens and 8 plasma screens.

Regular music is on play at most times. Outside there is a large seating area with tables and chairs , umbrellas and heated lamps, that is always busy in fine weather.

The bar is very lively at most times and is especially busy on the weekend. It attracts an upmarket crowd and is also popular with students and hotel guests in the area. The live football also attracts a steady crowd throughout the week. Disabled access is very good with a designated disabled toilet to the rear of the pub. Toilets located at the rear are smart and clean.

Price: Reasonable.
