I visited with family in my social bubble for a quick bite to eat. Upon parking my sister and I noted a car dumped in the car park and voiced some concern. We sat outdoors and my sister ordered food for 3 of us, food was poor quality and overpriced. We also noted the social distancing and hygiene measures weren’t ideal. Approximately 1 month after I received a parking charge for the date and time we visited, for £60. I appealed and was notified that it was now £100! For a visit that was less then 1 hour? Furthermore the manager/owner/tenant (as a former licensee I can state he was unsure of the business status) was slightly shy of being abusive when I queried if the car park belonged to them and that we not seen any notices stating it was a private car park. Not wanting to argue with someone who was clearly right (!!) I will take this matter up with the brewery and the parking charge company. Sadly I will be ensuring anyone I know is aware of the poor treatment of customers in this business. I prefer to support local traders however in future business will be taken elsewhere.

We live local to this beautiful bar and restaurant and highly recommend a visit. Since the ease of lock down we have visited 5 times or more for drinks and food and have always been greeted with very polite friendly staff. The choice of food here is also excellent and freshly cooked to your liking. Well worth a visit!!!!!!!

Went out for random friday night dinner. Decided on glass of 'sweet rose' was tasteless. Ordered the steak baguette...expected steak ! Got chopped up bits of wafer thin beef in tasteless gravy with huge lump of mushrooms rather than fried and sliced. No onions. Side salad...lettuce yellow and tomatoes were soggy🤢 paid 23.00 for dinner which I didn't even eat or drink. On a positive point staff were friendly but wouldn't go back for food....ever

My husband and I booked this place for the GNR. After reading the reviews (after booking) I admit I was a little concerned about what we might find, but we were pleased to find the room we booked is more than adequate. We booked a double room with an en suite. As others have said, the room is a little dated but for the price we had no complaints about the room. It was clean and the shower was lovely. It is true it can be a little noisy but this can't be helped as it's a working pub and restaurant and with other rooms in the property there's bound to be sounds from other guests - doors shutting, guests coming up and downstairs, sounds from the plumbing etc. After around 11ish (Saturday evening) the noise settled and it was peaceful. We chose to eat in the restaurant and had steak which was cooked to perfection. The staff were so helpful and pleasant and we really couldn't fault them. Both my husband and I have said we would stay here again. Pros - great value for money, free on site parking, cosy, lovely shower, really nice staff, good food, good location for South Shields. Cons - might be slightly noisy for some if you are bothered by noise.
