This has recently undergone a major refurbishment. More of a gastro-pub now, but still has a couple of real ales on.

Very quiet pub on my early Tuesday evening visit. Greene King Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen were the only two real ales with 3 handpulls dormant. For the 8th time in the day, the cider of choice was Woodpecker. Rarely is Woodpecker seen on draught throughout most of the country. But in South Shields, it appears to be the most popular. Whilst drinking it, I noticed a Westons Traditional Scrumpy pumpclip next to the till. Unfortunately it was not available and just served to wind me up a little! With only one other customer and the barman watching daytime televison, the pub was devoid of atmosphere. A pool table is located right near the entrance. Framed artwork lines the walls. Toilets are upstairs. The interior is bright, but I doubt I'd return.

Open again with a new manager. Went in last Friday (08/10/10) there were five beers on namely Tim Taylors Landlord, Hardy's & Hansons Olde Trip, Greene King Abbot, IPA & Morland Old Speckled Hen. I had the IPA which was kept well enough.

I'll give this pub a 2nd chance but when I visited they had run out of beer. Didn't even have Guinness. That's really bad form - especially when there are better pubs really close by. Lovely friendly welcoming pub dog tho. Won me over - otherwise the pub would be written off and never re-visited.
