“One star is one too many!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Staff were friendly enough but, oh dear that's about where it ends. Tried several chairs and all had loose legs suggesting that they were either too old or had been thrown around the pub on a regular basis, (possible on wild weekends), only went there because it's about the only pub in central Newcastle that has Sky sports and serves food, and to be honest I use the word food reluctantly. Everything was overcooked, a medium rare steak was actually medium incinerated, and the chicken in my burger was almost inedible. In our group, 3 out of 4 had stomach problems the following day. This is one place near the Newcastle quayside that should be avoided at all costs.

“Perfect Pub Grub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We couldn't handle any more hills in Quayside so the Akenside traiders was ideal. First place in Newcastle that actually served Nachos! Food was great and the guys behind the bar were friendly enough.
