“Right on the banks of the Tyne, under the iconic Tyne Bridge, with some of the UKs best city views” – these “trendily laid-out, converted shipping containers” have “a fabulous setting” and are “quirky in every way”. “Start with a beer: there’s around 15 to choose from, many brewed on the premises, served in 1/3 and 2/3 measures (a good plan given the strength range, of 5%-10%)”. The food is “cooked in-view” in a ‘fiercely seasonal, open-fire kitchen’ and the fairly eclectic results are regularly outstanding: “mains were as good a meat as I’ve had. The Barnsley Chop was gargantuan, cooked with seafood (it works!). The whole lemon sole easily fed two, and was perfect”. The odd reporter does strike unlucky, though: “duck predicted as ‘tender’ wasn’t… steak and bone marrow was very salty yet vegetables were bland”.
