user reviews of Belle Vue, Low Fell

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

According to an advert in the Gateshead FC programme, the Belle Vue refers to itself as Low Fellís No. 1 pub, a claim that will certainly keep anyone out of any other pubs in the area.

A small but brightly lit front bar has multiple TVs showing Rugby, Football and whatever else is on, all at the same time, which was fine for us as we were specifically targeting somewhere to watch the recent Villa v Spurs game although one suspects that the transmissions shown arenít exactly above board (unless Eurosport 2 have suddenly started showing live Premiership games!). Football memorabilia (including an Italia Ď90 England shirt signed by Bobby Robson) gives the place more of a sports bar theme than a pub although there was a lounge bar at the rear where we headed to find some breathing space. A further 4 screens (including a bizarrely placed big screen in front of the perfectly adequate flat screen) with a multitude of channels, some with sound, others without, but all irrelevant due to the pounding music that increased in volume the more people began to shout to get themselves heard over it until such time it became totally unbearable.

Unfortunately, Low Fells No. 1 pub only has keg beers so a night of John Smiths smooth rather rubbed the salt into the wounds. Despite all the negative elements, I didnít feel at all threatened or intimidated like previous posters, just deafened and partly embarrassed by the shocking sight and sound of middle aged women 20 years too old for their dresses screeching Pussycatís Mississippi - not a sound or image I wish to convey in any great detail suffice to say this was all before 7.30pm. As pub experiences go, this was just about as bad as it gets. Shame I didnít know about the nearby Aletaster, presumably Low Fells No 2. pub. I can see what theyíre doing wrong.

This place is awful. The average age of the punters appears to be 18 going on 12! Its badly designed and not user friendly!
The staff are surly and the customers are often too angry for words - my advice is to give the place a very wide berth!

Good for gash and a fight, if that's your fancy. Personally, I prefer to drink decent beer when I go to a pub and not to put up with some jostling charver whose dad was 'king of the skins' and who would like to play out his little boy's fantasy of tough man on his equally knuckleheaded mates.
