    • 3.0
    — For a small pub on an industrial estate in a run down working class part of Gateshead the prices are utterly ridiculous. I understand there is a certain rockabilly/50s theme and they want to attract a particular clientele but really, for someone who knows about craft ales, they are going way overboard with the prices. Cheaper to drink in City Centre. Great pub, terrible prices :)
