not sure if this has been ruined since previous reviews but i found it somewhat disappointing to be honest. The bar as I walked in was suitably olde and crooked but everyone was watching horses on the TV. it had no real ale so I walked through to the other one. This had real ale but everyone was eating cheap pub food or watching horses on TVs. this room was modern and less interesting. the final two rooms, up and down the steps were full of people watching horses on both big and small TVs. I got a half of Bass and escaped. you can’t help but wish Sam Smiths or someone sympathetic got their hands on this place, it’s just a chain sports bar in an old alley.

This old pub is set down an alleyway off Cloth Market although I did spot a sign for it in High Bridge near the Duke Of Wellington.
The part that was open on a Friday midday consisted of a wide room split into different areas on various levels. There were a few in for an early pint on my visit.
The bar has five hand pumps which had Bass, Roundhill Pale & Golden, Brinkburn St Byker Brown, Anarchy Urban Assault and Hadrian & Border Grainger Ale. I went for the Roundhill beer (£3.35) which was in good nick.
I thought this was a pleasant enough place but thought it might also be a bit of a tourist trap. It's worth a look and is GBG 2018 listed.

A little hidden away from view down an alley off the Bigg Market, this is an intriguing place in an historic old building (1582, claims WhatPub). Enter up some stairs and past some eclectic shops to reach an aged courtyard pub. The interior is a proper higgledy-piggledy selection of rooms on different levels. Whilst there are some nice aged touches (dark wood panelling regency era framed prints) there has been some cack-handed decor missteps such as whitewashing the wonky beams, the wood panelling upstairs and purchasing some Ill-suited light wood tables; a misguided sop, I suspect, to the food brigade the pub is aiming at. A surprisingly good selection of ales from Bass, Consett, Anarchy, BrewDog, Loch Lomond and Credence 3C Pale, the latter of which was a little pump tired. It's worth a look if you're crawling this bit of town but it isn't an essential. 6.5
