Whenever in Newcastle we always call in here and always find it OK,but was a bit disappointed on our recent visit. There were 8 hand pumps 3 had no clips on and the other 5 were all turned round,so asked for a pint of a Spanish lager and a Martini Rosso for Mrs Wild Rover,both of which they had none of.Finshed up with 2 halves of foreign lager that I had never heard of before.

a relaxed sort of place, like the others in this group it’s a decent place for a decent pint. It has a million times more charm than most pub chains. Seven ales on covering a good range of styles. Please all food menus with standard gastropub fare. Long haired barman called me ‘dude’ as he served up my pint, I think he was in charge of the playlist too. Nirvana-ahoy! From my seat I could see both the mural of the Tyne and the Tyne itself, which was nice.

Now run by Cameron's after an extensive refurb and reopened in Aug 2016. This is a good sized pub with a multitude of seating options. We found a decent spot down the far left hand side of the bar. This area had a collection of various drinking vessels in a display hanging from the ceiling. Around the corner was a large mural of the Tyne Bridge which was very eye catching. The décor in here was exposed red brick walls, grey walls and timber and toffee coloured banquette seating. Eight handpumps with seven in use, so we went for the Fell Brewery OPA and the Northern Alchemy IPA.
