Large building with small rooms all over the place. Not too busy and able to get served quickly. Normal bar fare but good and reasonable prices. Just across the road from the station so gets lots of travelers with cases.

Wetherspoons pub, a little of the beaten track so quite quiet when we visited. Large building split into different rooms with additional seating upstairs. We chose the deli deal - cheese and ham pannini with chips and a pint of Thatchers - at £5.25 each you really can't go wrong. Food arrived after a reasonable wait and was delicious. Plenty... More

Four of us went for a meal on a short break to newcastle. The main bar was very noisy. But we found a table in a nice quiet side room all our meals were served fairly quickly, and all were good. For the price we paid it was very good value. The building is a ex gentleman's club and is... More

This is a lovely old building and plenty of rooms in which to drink and eat. Standard spoons food menu and drinks. You know exactly... More

First off, this place looks fantastic - it is an old style English building which has been done up to look more modern. It's big and spacious and has multiple floors. It is also quite cheap for food and drink and in a very central location. Unfortunately would could not find a clean table to sit at because they all... More

Absolutely wonderful atmosphere throughout this grand establishment, it's such a shame that the frontage is limited due to the over running construction of student accommodation next door. The biggest buzz for me was a lovely pint of cask ale for £1.49, really turning the clocks back & making me one happy man!!!!!
