We chose this pub because it was on our journey from Leeds to South Shields on Saturday 1st March and we wanted to break our journey for lunch somewhere not far off the A1, that accepted our Tastecard and also allowed dogs in the bar area. The welcome and the food and beer were great and although we don't visit the area very often, we will definitely drop in again with our border collie for some good pub grub when we are passing.
