Very large JD Wetherspoon's pub that is sited in an historical area of the Quayside, overlooking the Tyne.
There is an outside seating at the front which affords a good view of the river, Tyne bridge and passing trains.
The main bar area has a stone floor and a long narrow wooden bar. There is a huge multi coloured flashing panel behind the bar with smart drop down lighting over it.
The bar area also has some widescreen TV's that feature music and videos. There is plenty of seating throughout the pub including a seating area upstairs.
The pub has retained its high ceiling and wooden beams but the most noticeable change is that it has been opened out making it more spacious.
It can be accessed from two glass doors at the rear which lead on to the courtyard area.
The courtyard has additional seating which is covered by a huge canopy and there are some heated lamps, a small outside bar is used on occasion. This area is particularly busy when there is fine weather.
The rear of the bar is mostly carpeted and there is also a family room to one side. There are stairs at the rear that lead to a smaller bar upstairs that has a small bar and further seating for diners.
Regular music is on play at most times with a DJ a regular feature on a Thursday, Friday & Saturday.
The pub is extremely popular at all times, especially on the weekend due to its position and the special deals available on meals and drinks. Free WiFi throughout bar.
The bar attracts a mixed crowd of business people, locals, tourists, diners and a younger crowd at weekends. There are excellent baby changing and disabled facilities available. Toilets are small and clean.
Children Friendly: There is a separate area of the bar where children are allowed access. There are also meals for children available. No under 18's permitted after 6pm.
Price: Very reasonable for the area. Probably the best value for money on the Quayside.
