Use the HOS at the quayside a lot so decided to visit here whilst in Tynemouth with friends. Great choice of beer, nice relaxed atmosphere!

Music isn't blaring in here so it's nice place to have a few drinks and a chat. The bar is well stocked and has some stuff you don't find in other places nearby. Food isn't that great, good bar though
