The Gibraltar Rock is an iconic landmark on the Tynemouth coast. The carvery is excellent and always good value for money. The atmosphere is conducive to having a very enjoyable time with good friends and the staff are friendly and helpful.

In an unrivalled location, this is a very nice place to have a pint. The food downstairs also looked very good (we didn't eat there through)
