Last minute decision to eat here due to Trip Advisor reviews. I've been to the Fish Quay many times but didn't realise this place was tucked around the corner. Good selection of food, reasonable prices and casual, friendly efficient service. I'm having pie next time!!

What a fabulous place, the oldest pub in North Shields built in 1657, food is freshly cooked, great choice, we had corned beef pie, twice fried chips, mushy peas with a jug of gravy, delicious. Ideal for couples, would highly recommend it.

We have visited this pub infrequently over the years,having never eaten there. Upon recommendation we partook of the home made pies and mashed potato It was delicious and served by helpful staff. We will call again next time we are in the area.
