Surprisingly smaller than I expected, with two rooms on the ground floor, a small lounge and bar side separated by a timber partition, plus a staircase leading to a first floor restaurant. This pub was very well kept and the customers and staff were respectable. Quite a haven from the hustle and bustle of the nearby quayside bars and pubs. Four handpumps serving Bass, Titanic Plum Porter, Out There Brewing Alpha Lupi and Wylam Writer's Block. We went for the Out There Brewing and Wylam, both were very well kept. The bar area had an oak counter top, with a dark grey painted bar front, along with some coat hooks. Mosaic tiling around the bar area was a nice feature, along with the low ceilings.

Decent selection of ale in this one without it breaking any records. Would probably revisit if in the area.

Set slightly back from the Quay, between the Tyne and Millennium bridges, this is a rather fancy looking pub and restaurant that seemed an oasis of calm on a Saturday night compared to the antics on the other side of the Tyne Bridge. You enter into a smart main bar area with some nice mosaic tile flooring giving way to plain bare boards. The servery is down the right hand wall and has a fairly standard counter and a pump clip lined bar back. Seating here is limited to a few high stools under the front windows and along a ledge opposite the bar. The ledge forms part of a partitioning screen which obscures the bar from a comfortable lounge on the left hand side of the room. Here you will find long padded banquettes and some standard chairs in a pleasant space decorated with dried flowers, eclectic photos and various objets d'art. Elsewhere, décor includes horseshoes, blackboards and straw animal heads - all a bit eclectic and odd but it works relatively well in creating a slightly off-beat look to what is otherwise quite a straight-laced establishment. The first floor houses a restaurant that seems to garner favourable reviews, although I didn't manage to get a proper look up there as I wasn't eating. I could also hear what sounded like the thump of a bass drum, suggesting that live music might be playing somewhere, but I was not able to establish whether this was the case or not.
There were four ales available on handpull on my Saturday evening visit - Out There The Writers Block and Space is the Place, Mordue Workie Ticket and Bootleg Lawless. I plumped for a pint of Space is the Place and thought it was in reasonable shape without being truly memorable. Two real ciders were also available and the staff were prompt and courteous without really offering the warm welcome that had otherwise characterised my time in the North East.
This is a pretty good pub that does a number of things well - the beer range is interesting enough to appeal to drinkers and the food seems to have a well earned reputation should you want to visit for a meal. The place has a fairly universal appeal in terms of its layout and décor without really brining too much to the plate in terms of originality. A good place to enjoy with the other half, but not up there with the best the city has to offer.
