The pork on my Sunday dinner was inedible, instead of crackling it was like tough leather. I hate complaining but I mentioned it to the lady serving us and she got the manager. The manager was rude, aggressive and insulting. He aggressively asked why I hadn't said anything earlier, and I explained that I am autistic and find stuff like this incredibly uncomfortable. He accused me of saying the food was fine when the server asked during the meal, but my husband said his was fine, I didn't say anything at all. Instead of being understanding he asked "well what do you want me to do about it?" ... As the manager he shouldn't need me to tell him what to do. At this point I was starting to panic and shut down, but said could he knock something off the meal, he then aggressively said to the server "just take £1.50 off it" then stormed off. The £1.50 wasn't taken off as a gesture of good will, it was taken off as an insult. I was there with friends and they all felt uncomfortable due to his confrontational attitude. From previous reviews I can see the manager treats his staff the same way he treats his customers, which probably explains why most of them seem unhappy. Safe to say we won't be returning.

First time here, I had a Groupon voucher. The food was lovely, and there was plenty to choose from on the menu. Outlook is amazing over the fish quay. Will definitely come back

Went for lunch at this very quaint little pub. Arriving you could look from Car park over into Tyne. If like myself you enjoy river views then I'm sure this would be an experience while visiting this pub. Entering definitely different Alice in wonderland theme complete with bright wallpaper. Choosing where you sit plenty to choose where. Fro. Comfy snug to window views overlooking Tyne . Our orders were taken after being seated ( which best to book). Arrived piping hot . Mmmm we chose fish . OMG freshest fish iv rver tasted and batter beautifully cooked. Only let down was sweet which we ordered Eton mess. Rather sweet and not as I would Imagined it to be. Never mind would definitely recommend this place . Menus online also a set menu if you wish to choose from it. Very good pricing. Toilets two to choose from. Very relaxed and service spot on. Will definitely be going again.
