My friend and I had lunch here, we both chose a sandwich and chips which was cheap and cheerful, the place was pleasant and comfortable, the staff were friendly, it was quiet so we were served quickly and didn't wait long for our food order, I will definitely return for lunch again in the near future.

something in the booking system clearly failed---my advice is to double check BEFORE you travel. It is a poor reflection on trip advisor that someone can travel hundreds of miles with a reference number and having given credit card details...only to find upon arrival that there is no electronic record at the hotel of choice. I felt very let down.

Having visited for i night out i made a complaint about rude bar staff. The manager is not fit to manage a pig sty. Avoid at all costs. Also the toilets are disgusting and not fit for purpose. Carpets are very dirty

I've visited this bar over the last 2 weekends and had a really good night. The first time was on a friday and we saw a brilliant reggae/ska band called 'Third beat drop'. The music was fantastic and the range from Bob Marley to The beat, to old time ska music were all played with enthusiasm and skill. We ended...

Many thanks for your review, it is however unfortunate that you don't mention why the staff ignored you. You were not served as you were shouting and being rude to a young female member of staff as you felt you were not being served quick enough. When the deputy manager spoke to you regarding your behaviour you said that unless...

Many Thanks for your review, I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your Christmas lunch. Its a shame that you didn't bring these issues to our attention at the time as we would have hopefully been able to rectify them. We served 150 Christmas Day lunches and we were not aware of any issues on the day and this...

Stayed at the Lambton for the 1st time over the weekend. It's a great value for money pub with some hotel rooms. The pub is clean and tidy with good food and drinks. The hotel rooms are large and clean and beds comfortable. There's a little bit of noise from the pub but that was expected as I read that...

A busy weekend with "Toon" football on, people arriving to stay overnight for the Great North Run. The staff took time to serve everyone in a warm and welcoming manner. The Manager was brilliant sorting out our issues, easily sorted. Food was good value for money, beer was far far better than the poor stuff you get down south. A...
