  • Amazing beer gardens with outstanding views. Great selection of ales but at quite a cost. Great stop on a pub crawl  more »
  • Whilst this place has a great view along the river - it is very quirky! The decor leaves a lot to be desired but really good ale made up for that!  more »

  • Visited at lunchtime on a Friday and expected a bit more unfortunately, so only a 4* due to having more than half the options unavailable, I believe due to a pending beer festival starting later that day. Also believe a good ale/craft pub needs a good clear board with beers/prices/ABV to save having to look at all the pumps while navigating people stood around the bar. Proper pub with a great view, worth the walk along the Quayside if you like a good beer.
  • Fabulous pub. Trendy and studenty but retains the old man wooden interiors. Great view of the Tyne and a stunning array of beers (my pint was £3.60, which is good value in my book.) Near two other great pubs.
