“Good food, good service and good atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Over the weekend I was down the pub several times. First to watch the live band on Saturday night and then on Sunday to have some food whilst watching the spurs match.

The band was great (as have many others been down there recently) you can see that the new managers (I think their names are Karl and Laura??) have really put alot of effort into the entertainment schedule down there and I have already signed up to attend Xmas eve and New Years Eve band nights on facebook.

The meal on Sunday was delicious (and not expensive for what we had) and we were well looked after by Laura, who always welcomes us with a friendly face :)

Would reccomend this put to anyone - whether it be for a family meal or for a night out.

“Foods good but the building is so tired”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Its time they put so cash back into the building and decoration because the service and food is good but the environment means its not top of your list in a town where you're spoilt for choice.

“Good value and friendly staff”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The building doesn't look too encouraging on the outside. Its a flat roofed building from, I would guess, the 1950s. However, the location by the river, next to the bridge is good. It was amply fitted with TVs for the Newcastle v Spurs match on at lunchtime but there were several families and older couples having lunch as well as those watching the match in the bar area. I had a good, two course sunday lunch for £9.50 (roast beef and apple pie). Pub favourites including burgers, chicken, lasagne etc were also available as well as several tapas dishes. Service was quick and the staff were friendly and came over several times to check if everything was ok.

“Family friendly pub”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

I frequently visit this restaurant with friends and have always experienced very friendly staff and a family friendly atmosphere. I have recommended it to several friends who have visited and enjoyed their experience. It is especially good on a sunny day when you can sit outside and watch the birds on the river
