If I have been in a better pub in the past I cannot think where or when it was. It is the best run, friendliest pub I have ever been in. It is also a great example of how to restore a pub to what it once was. The staff are also the most knowledgeable and interested in what they... More

Staff members are lovely and have a great knowledge of beers and ales etc and were able to expertly advice me on something new to try. The place itself feels welcoming and has a lovely terrace at the back. Would definite recommend to friends.

This was our second visit to this comfortable and relaxing pub since it was taken over from "Jarrow Breweries" ownership, on both occasions the selection of craft beers on offer, the service and knowledge of the staff regarding the beers on offer was excellent. On our first visit to compliment our drinks we tried the Italian orientated bar snacks and... More

Visited this pub on a night out with friends. I was pleasantly surprised at the inside, it's decorated to a high standard while retaining a lot of the characteristic features. A good selection of beers and lager. Only a couple of minutes walk into the city centre so an ideal place to meet.

A lovely pint, comfortable atmosphere and seating in a wonderful building. Really glad we stumbled across this welcome treat. Also a great walk along the river the sea, via the glass museum - top positioning. Loved it

This pub is just how a traditional British pub should be - lots of choice of fine ales in pleasant surroundings with helpful, knowledgeable and cheery staff. The surroundings are great - nice little spots to sit and chat without having to shout over awful music. Took some friends here recently who were used to a wide choice of drinking... More
