I loved everything about this pub, especially the stained glass windows and the friendly staff. It was the perfect amount of traditional pub without being an 'old man' pub. If I was from Newcastle I think I would just live in this place.

This is one of Newcastle's oldest pubs with a lovely traditional interior. There is a good range of cask ale on offer and it's a great place to enjoy a civilised pint or two. The pub isn't huge and is deep and narrow which means...More
