Small narrow corner pub popular with a lively atmosphere which is popular with the local Newcastle crowd.

There is some seating to the front in a raised area and some high seats along the window towards the side of the pub.

There is also a cosy snug area at the rear with further high seating with shelves against the walls and pillars.

The rear of the pub sweeps around through a narrow passage to the other side of the bar.

The main theme of the pub is bees and there are several pictures along a narrow passageway at the rear and a display on the art of beekeeping in a pillar in the snug area.

A large clock is a prominent feature near the main entrance. The pub has an ornate decoration with wooden panelling on walls.

The pub can be very busy at most times due to its position.

A steady group of locals and regulars frequent the pub as well as people making their way around the Bigg Market bars.

A juke box is located at the centre of the pub with regular music on play at most times.

There are some games machines dotted about the pub. Big screen sports shown on TV.s throughout the bar.

Excellent disabled access with a disabled toilet at the rear. Ask for the key at the bar. Toilets are small and clean.
