Large pub which is part of the Stonegate pub chain with a long bar that is decked out to a high standard. The pub has smart decor that blends in nicely with the modern wooden furnishings and wooden panelling on the walls. There are huge glass windows to the front that makes it bright and airy during the day and in the evening there is dark subdued lighting.

There is plenty of seating throughout with one end of the bar having low wooden seating and tables. The other end has high tables and an old ornate fireplace. Small modern pictures adorn the walls. The pub gets very busy most of the time with a mixed clientele and is packed at weekends with a young crowd and quayside revellers.

There are two large drop down screens and several TV's that show Live sport and every Newcastle and England live matches. The rugby Six nations is also shown. There is regular music on play with the DJ on a Friday & Saturday situated in a booth to the right of the bar. The bar is close to several restaurants & other pubs on the Quayside.

There is a nice view of the river and Guild Hall from the front of the pub. Taxi rank outside.

Disabled access to main bar good but difficult to toilets as downstairs. Toilets are smart and clean.

Price: Reasonable.
