Decent pub. Decent drinks and prices. Very central to the city centre. Friendly staff. Worth a visit

The place is a little quirky and different, can be a little awkward to know the best place to sit as we found a load of reserved nitices on tables. Staff really friendly and they do a great burger. It's well worth a visit!

This place used to be great, they did some of the best tapas I've had. So I was disappointed when i returned to Newcastle to find it now only does burgers! Can't understand why, they're not even good burgers they taste like a manky old...More

Recommended by my cousin about 20 minutes before. We walked passed it 3 times. So keep looking you won't regret it. Inside is quirky, and comfortable. Great mix of music too!! The menu is small! But as they say quality is better than quantity. We...More

Visited after hearing rave reviews. It's a bit tricky to find, upstairs. Quite small but quirky, I would say student type place but there was a mixed crowd & mixed age. Good ambience about the place. Limited menu but we came for the burgers so...More
