I was looking for somewhere cheap to eat. I ordered a chicken parmo. It came with extra peas which weren't mentioned on the menu. The food was cheap, but edible. It was cooked through and tasted fine. The staff were helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing for a Monday night at around 18:00. My experience was comparable... More

This pub has got to be one of the best in North Shields, great atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, variety of ales. It's in good location for both bus and metro. They open early and provide one the best breakfast you,ll get anywhere if your feeling I would recommend the big daddy breakfast.

Have been twice both times my meal was "missed" off the order !!! But not apparent until other meals delivered to table .... humble apologies from staff but no offer of free coffee or anything I work with two adults with learning difficulties so could not walk out as they were eating. Will not go again two chances is enough!!!

We went for a New Year's Day drink with the family and thought we'd choose this pub as Ive heard good things... Well... We entered the pub and were immediately greeted by two staff members kicking a few punters out - clearly they'd had too much to drink and we're extremely foul mouthed and argumentative. Putting that aside, we tried... More

What a mistake that was. A client of our business suggested going for a quick lunch. As I am from Morpeth I had little idea of choice in Northshields. After the meal that was put in front of me I regret not going to a freezer food shop. The cheapest of the cheap frozen food microwaved. A similar meal in... More
