What is this place - a pub, a restaurant, an entertainment venue? What it is, is a very nice place and it can be what you want it to be!
Downstairs is a traditional pub atmosphere with a selection of ales, a small number of tables and some adapted pavement area for a pleasant outdoor space. Upstairs has apparently recently been transformed and is now a separate restaurant area.
We partook of the Sunday lunch offer and boy, was it a treat! Although the available starters didn't really go with the idea of a traditional British roast and so we didn't bother, when the main course arrived we were pleased we'd got space for the gargantuan portion. Roast beef aplenty, roastie potatoes, many different veg, yorkshire pudding, stuffing and a pig in blanket, all served with lashings of gravy on the side. Value for money - it outdid itself! Naughtily, we continued the feast with sticky toffee pudding in readiness for a well deserved afternoon kip when we got home!!
In addition to the fab food, this review cannot go without mention for the fabulous attention and service from our young Geordie waitress, who was delightful throughout and added to our definitely to be repeated experience in this city 'pub'
