well where do you start, decided to visit last night, to see if it as good as they say, monday night rather quiet, mixture of tables and seats, you pick from the menu and order from the bar, now here is the rub why do they ask you to pay up front, just a small point but everything you order a drink etc. you pay up front no tab, Mainly all tapas so ordered 5 plus a glass of wine and a beer, no draught beers only bottles, overall a relaxed hour enjoyed the 5 tapas to share, jury still out if they were made fresh or microwaved, verved on the latter I think, enjoyed the local beer even through it was £4.50 for a 500ml bottle, total bill was £29 few people using laptops on Wi-Fi. Staff were pleasant and not in your face would I go back yes maybe, will call back with a trip adviser sticker for the door!!!
ps pop in next door aspires glass of wine and a pint still £4.
Favorite Dish: plenty of favours in the tapa,s
ok , I have visited here for 38 years, and nothing changes, food sadly has gone, but is still one of the best for real ale in the area, Graham the manager keeps a good pint, and is perfect for chilling out, quiet normally through the day apart from match days, plain old fashioned interior, toilets no change in 38 years and dog friendly, always water available for the little ones, so next time in Tynemouth just pop in and soak up the atomsphere.
built in 1850 with a listed front facade of white tiling. Located close to the sea front at Tynemouth there is one room separated into two distinct lounge and bar areas. History has it that one of the regulars in the early days was Wandering Willie and when he died in 1880 the owners of the pub at the time had him stuffed and displayed in the pub, where he is to this day!!
Once a fine watering hole, closed in 1973 to become a carvey and has being around ever since. ideal for a cheap carvey normally 2 for a set price around £10. Its coming up to 39 years and we still visit this little gem. plus the views from above in the bar are excellent
Favorite Dish: must be the Carvery for 2
On a prime position in Tynemouth front street, does get busy on a weekend and has outside seating if the weather is kind to you, offers various food and drinks depending on taste, now I use it for business meetings and parking is only 1 penny a minute in the main front street.
Opposite the park away from front street, drive past every night, hardly ever see anyone in, when we were there we were the only couple in and the room is large, food was good, so take your choice either a quiet night here or a busy atomsphere on the front street
Sitting in the middle of the front sea, facing south, its a little sun trap, very good choice of meals as would be expected from the fitzgerald chain, good polite staff staff, alot of people use it through the day for teas, coffees cakes etc, good choice of real ales as well so enjoy.
just opened again after a major re fub, still busy and decoration wel through out, pleasing to the eye, plenty of sitting areas for large and small groups, again service is good and food served quickly, staff are keen to help, otherall a good experience for a night out
Favorite Dish: chicken tikka balti and fresh nans
