First time here since 2012. Much better, bat at tge back of the building now so you can actually move in the place. Toilets upstairs except for disabled also much better and cleaner than the old downstairs ones. Nice screens for bt sports coverage. Good music choice playing on saturday night 80s/90s. Much improved :)

Not too bad in here, Plenty of tv's showing sports etc. They had karaoke on while we were here, not my thing tbh but the locals seemed happy enough with it.
Beers were pretty cheap so all in all a fairly good pub.

A proper drinkers pub

Had a great night here after visiting Sunderland for the football. Spent several hours here after the game in the evening, and were treated to a warm welcome by staff and customers alike. Good range of beer/cider/lager seemed to be well stacked with various spirits too. Juke box cheap and provided a lively partner to a Saturday night revelry with friends. This is probably not a family friendly place in general, but it served our purposes for the night.

Came in while on a night out and it’s very much a pub, pub. Drinks are cheep thou but not that much choice e.g cocktails like other bars in the town but if you want beer that’s ok.

Cold beer, Rock Music. What's Not To Like?

We used to come into the Borough every week without fail. At the time (15 - 20 years or so, ago) we used to head upstairs where it was a disco type bar. These days, I'm not sure if there's an upstairs. Anyway, we'd just come from the all but empty and disappointing Port of Call. e'd by-passed Gatsby's as it was also empty. There's nothing remarkable about the bar. It's not the cleanest, busiest or fashionable. However it has stood the test of time with minimal improvements if any (I think they've changed the beer mats, since!!). This place I predict will still be standing when the newer, but much emptier bars around it have closed.

Hadn't visited for a good six months but not as good as it used to be.

I noticed the jukebox thing too, kept turning it up and down! Staff seemed interested in talking to friends, dancing around or using their mobile more than serving people.

It has good atmosphere still though, still full of freaks, geeks, rockers, charvers, old people, young people, hipster people, normal people.

Seemed a bit cheaper than it used to be.
