This pub has got to be one of the best in North Shields, great atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, variety of ales. It's in good location for both bus and metro. They open early and provide one the best breakfast you,ll get anywhere if your feeling I would recommend the big daddy breakfast.

Have been twice both times my meal was "missed" off the order !!! But not apparent until other meals delivered to table .... humble apologies from staff but no offer of free coffee or anything I work with two adults with learning difficulties so could not walk out as they were eating. Will not go again two chances is enough!!!

We went for a New Year's Day drink with the family and thought we'd choose this pub as Ive heard good things... Well... We entered the pub and were immediately greeted by two staff members kicking a few punters out - clearly they'd had too much to drink and we're extremely foul mouthed and argumentative. Putting that aside, we tried... More

What a mistake that was. A client of our business suggested going for a quick lunch. As I am from Morpeth I had little idea of choice in Northshields. After the meal that was put in front of me I regret not going to a freezer food shop. The cheapest of the cheap frozen food microwaved. A similar meal in... More

Popped in for a half pint and had a look at the menu. Thought I would give it a go. Gammon steak chips eggs and peas. I was pleasantly surprise lovely steak, two eggs, peas all cooked just right and I was a very happy man. Its a normal chain pub grub but tasty and good value. Service was good... More

I am a local to the powburn and can't fault them for cheap drinks and lovely staff. The only downfall is that the food is absolutely rank. Jacket potato was barley cooked (tasted like it has just been dug out the ground) and basically no filling. Food 100% needs improved.

Worst customer service ever. Waited at the bar to be served for at least 10 minutes whilst the staff were stood talking and laughing amongst theirselves. When food was brought to table the waitress just slammed plates down and walked away. No one come back to ask if everything was okay, which it wasn't. Hardly no filling within my jacket... More
