Had a table booked here for Good Friday, was absolutely packed but got seated on time. Decor is nice but the food really is exemplary -definitely not your standard pub fare, better presented than most restaurants and just really tasty. Highly recommended.

I have been to this pub restaurant quite a few times and the food, atmosphere and service has always been excellent. The guest real ales are always good and the food menu contains classics like fish and chips and some more exotic dishes. If you want a quiet medl go early as the pub fills up after about 8.30. The view over the harbour from the panoramic windows is quite a sight.

Went here with the wife on Saturday was very very busy. The service was excellent considering how busy the place was and the menu very varied with a great choice. I went for the steak and kidney pudding with turned potatoes, buttered greens and beer roasted carrots and the wife went for fish and chips both meals where cooked amazingly all homemade fresh food just as pub food should be instead of some of the garbage you get.. All in all will be back very soon best food in south shields!!

Nice environment, with good service. Range if food on menu very good with not just pub food style. (Could be a wider vegetarian range) but for meat/ fish mains excellent. Though should say v's will get fed, for instance very nice portobello mushroom burger.

Wine nice and a couple of real ales. All in all will definitely be heading back.
