It must be its position directly under the Tyne Bridge that makes this bar less popular than say the Aikenside Traders. It can’t be the bar itself as it is superior in every way. It is unassuming, but friendly and laid out over a few...More

A busy bar with a great selection of beers from local and national small craft breweries. The brewing tanks at the back of the pub make it even more interesting. The beers were delicious and the atmosphere lively and friendly on a Saturday afternoon.

Only popped in for a quick drink on way to a restaurant, but certainly looks the part and had a decent atmosphere. The draught cider was very nice as well.

Food us served until 9pm Mon-Thurs, and then until 7pm Fri-Sat. Sunday lunch tends to be more informal, ie it is served until it runs out. Always worth double checking, but I'm fairly sure that's the format. Cheers.
