Booked for a Tuesday lunchtime (last day of Christmas holidays) for myself, my wife and my younger son. Chose 9 different dishes from their quite extensive tapas menu and we all agreed that everything was perfect. Good value at 3 tapas for a tenner so for £30 we were all well satisfied. A welcome change from the standards of Italian... More

Went here for a meal with a group of friends last night for a Xmas night out and had a great time. I'd never been before but heard great things and it definitely didn't disappoint. The building and restaurant is beautiful, it's like you're being transported back in time (in a good way), loads of interesting features, and the restaurant... More

Visited on Saturday with my family for a birthday night out and it topped our evening off brilliantly, plenty of ales for dad and trendy beers for me, would recommend this bar to anyone, really chilled and the staff are great and not to pricey ether.

If I have been in a better pub in the past I cannot think where or when it was. It is the best run, friendliest pub I have ever been in. It is also a great example of how to restore a pub to what it once was. The staff are also the most knowledgeable and interested in what they... More

Staff members are lovely and have a great knowledge of beers and ales etc and were able to expertly advice me on something new to try. The place itself feels welcoming and has a lovely terrace at the back. Would definite recommend to friends.

This was our second visit to this comfortable and relaxing pub since it was taken over from "Jarrow Breweries" ownership, on both occasions the selection of craft beers on offer, the service and knowledge of the staff regarding the beers on offer was excellent. On our first visit to compliment our drinks we tried the Italian orientated bar snacks and... More

Visited this pub on a night out with friends. I was pleasantly surprised at the inside, it's decorated to a high standard while retaining a lot of the characteristic features. A good selection of beers and lager. Only a couple of minutes walk into the city centre so an ideal place to meet.
