Well worth a visit, a little piece of Newcastle history. Quirky, narrow pub with friendly staff and locals. No gimmicks just a good old fashioned pub. It was really, really busy the night we were in so be prepared to stand and enjoy the banter!...More

We really wanted to go here as everyone raves about this place and it is a quirky, old fashioned pub with lots of character and a good selection of beers. A must visit.

Great little pub serving a great selection of real ales. Staff are friendly. It's a good place to visit with customers from abroad, as it's quirky with its narrow shape. It does get packed so good to start out on a pub crawl and take...More

Visited this pub over the Christmas holiday and I love it. Historical, friendly and great drinks. Beautiful stained glass windows and original Victorian bar.
