The Stand is a Comedy Cafe bar which is located on High Bridge and is recognised as one of the best venues in the North East for comedy.

The bar has a cafe bistro with a range of tasty snacks and meals on offer. The Theatre is located downstairs where comedy acts are featured every night.

The main bar area has a small bar with plenty of tables and chairs for diners. There is a range of beers and local cask ales on offer.

To the rear of the bar there is a small outside Bistro courtyard garden area that is open in fine weather.
