A collaboration between local luminary Terry Laybourne's 21 Hospitality Group and Live Theatre, a new writing theatre based nearby, this proper old-school ale-house isn’t aiming for the skies, but it does what it does – well-kept beer and bar food – very well indeed; a further boon – “the new outdoor terrace makes it even better!”.

“A great pub beautifully located on the Newcastle quayside near Live Theatre”, with “fantastic bar food, a class above other pubs and a cask beer selection to match”“the upstairs restaurant is also very popular”. This is a “consistently top-notch establishment” which provides a “great all-round drinking and dining experience” – but be warned: it can be “noisy”.

This brilliant pub is “small but just what is needed” on the Quayside, and is one of the most commented-on destinations in town. “There’s a great choice of cask ales and interesting bar food during the day” (top quality small dishes supplemented by daily specials). “Upstairs the bustling restaurant serves clientele from surrounding businesses and the law courts (or visiting Live Theatre next door)”. “Simple pub grub is done with love”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
