please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Recently underwent a high quality refurbishment. The place has been opened up and is more spacious and airy.

A couple of real ales on, I had the Great North Eastern Breeches Buoy which looks to be a house beer. Good quality beer. Not tried the food yet, but I'd recommend the place for a visit.

It's not terrible but with so much competition it didn't rate very high on our tour of the Tyne area. However they did do food which is not easy to find in the evenings in the area. Having said that it wasn't great. When we arrived the place was heaving but seemed to be a stop off point to other evening acivities as about 50 people left whilst we were there. Onto the beers; given the choice in the area the selection was small and disappointing. Arundel Castle, Wadworth 6X, Greenjack Trawler and Allendale Gold. We had the latter and it was delicious. We would have stayed for the Greenjack but the place was too noisy for us.

This pub had gone downhill at my last visit, I was issued a guest ales collector card last Autumn which I was told would last a full year, when I tried to use it on a recent Saturday the young barmaid told me not only was it invalid at weekends - I only ever visit at weekends, but it was a 2012 card.
The beer I selected was the first of the day out the pump - at 13.15, no wonder they had so few customers, I asked whether it had been pulled through that morning and was informed no, the pumps are cleaned every 2 days, she did however pull 1/2 pint through. The beer was very vinegary and the next customer asked for the same, predictably the cask ran out. The alternative we both got was very flat and dissapointing. All pumps should be tested for quality by the landlord or qualified staff every session, this barmaid was obviously neither. Loyalty cards should be honoured, the Ts & Cs made no mention of weekends. I wont be back in a hurry.

A fine selection of real ales including mature toad and yorkshire terrier. Interesting selection of paintings, pictures and aerial photos on the walls. Busy and quite noisy but service was excellent.

The interior is rather run-of-the mill after having seen the beautifully-preserved frontage- open plan and rather disappointing, with a chainy feel to it. Still, this is a decent pub with a good variety of local ales. The food is standard pub fodder but they do serve most of the time so you can do worse than to pop in here.

One of Tynemouth's more traditional pubs, catering for a mostly - but not uniquely - mature clientele. The small front bar is ultra-trad, with a nautical feel - unsurprising given the location (the North Sea is at the bottom of the street). There's then a narrow seating/standing area parallel to the bar before the large, more modern rear section. Decent selection of real ales including the local Mordue Workie Ticket etc.
