This is a great atmospheric pub with plenty of beer choice. When we visited there were 12 hand pump beers available and our Brakspears was spot on. Well worth a visit.

This pub is very small but has great views of the Tyne on a summers night. The average age inside this pub is around 70 and mostly males but has plenty of real ales to choose from.

Had a decent amount of real ale on which suited me and the hubby. Very accessible and a very pleasant atmosphere. Young lady who served us made us feel welcome. Another visit when we are next in the area.
