Large pub that was formerly the old Jesmond train station.
The pub has retained many of its original features and there is a train carriage attached at one end that is now used as an Indian restaurant, Valley Junction 397.
There are two entrances that lead through to an L shaped mahogany bar. The interior is fully carpeted and is very nicely decorated throughout with mahogany and glass panelling.
As you enter one of the doors to the right you are greeted with a display of an old model train.
There is plenty of comfortable leather lounge seating with tables and chairs opposite the bar, with more intimate alcoved seating areas throughout the pub.
The subdued lighting creates a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with nice lighting fixtures along the top of the bar.
Two notable features are an old lamp post in the centre and an antique fireplace towards the rear of the bar.
There is also a large tiger above one of the main entrances. There are a mixed selection of modern pictures and portraits displayed on the walls.
The pub is frequented by business people, students and those looking for an alternative scene. It is also a popular haunt with families on a weekend as it is children friendly.
The pub has a large outside seating area with wooden bench type furniture. There is a Quiz night every Tuesday from 8.30pm - 11pm (50p per person) with a cash jackpot. Several games machines are dotted about.
A Jazz night is held every week on a Sunday. Cashback on debit purchases over £5. Private parties can be arranged.
Disabled access to main bar very good. Toilets are small and clean.
