A very large pub (part of the Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery pubs chain) that was previously known as Scruffy Murphy's and The Filament and Firkin. From the main entrance there is a long wooden bar to the right hand side and the furnishings are of a very smart wooden mahogany style. There is an abundance of seating throughout with a mixture of high and low tables and chairs. There is also plenty of standing room. Near the main entrance there is a more comfortable seating area with leather backed chairs.
The pub is bright and airy as there are large glass windows to the front and a high ceiling. The decor is a mixture of orange, cream, blue and maroon pastel colours and the floor is fully carpeted. There is also smart drop down lighting throughout. Around the walls there are several bookcases.
There is regular music playing at most times. Several widescreen TV's are to be found in all areas with a large drop down screen to the rear of the bar. Live sports are advertised with live football a regular feature. There are several games machines on show. All major credit cards are welcome. Free WiFi from O2 throughout bar.
The pub is one of the largest in town and attracts a mixed clientele of students, locals, business people, shoppers and people on a night out. It owes this to its excellent position being close to the shops and bus station and it is also a good meeting place prior to and after Newcastle home matches. A cash machine is located near to the toilets at the rear of the pub.
Disabled access very good with a disabled toilet to the rear. Toilets are very smart and clean.
Price: Very Reasonable.
