A colleague was moving to a new post so a drink was organised for him at The Schooner in Gateshead. As someone not familiar with Gateshead apart from the Stadium it was a trip into the unknown and what a brilliant pub it was. Situated down the road from the Stadium next to the Tyne it is a big, smart and very busy pub even at 3pm on a weekday. My husband would love this pub, live music, pinball, food and great choices of beers and lagers, he would have been in his element and is looking forward to a visit. I tried the cheesy chips whilst our company had nachos as the main reason was to drink to celebrate our colleagues new job abroad. Staff were friendly and again I wished we lived more local as this is the type of pub that myself and my husband would feel comfortable in.
