This is in a great location if your on the quayside. It's close to the Ouseburn area where there's plenty other good pubs. It's a nice place to drink and great to sit outside when it's sunny. The views of the Tyne are fantastic.

This is one of THE best pubs in Newcastle and the view from the scenic window is the BEST view in Newcastle I reckon!!! An episode of Vera was partly shot there!
