Did you know that we cater for celebrations, conferences and events? We offer free use of our conservatory, with a choice of quality buffets at good prices. Here’re some typical examples, but just get in touch with your requirements and we’ll give you a quote.
Wednesday 29th The BBC will be filming in the pub all day, from before opening time until after closing. The Schooner will be featuring in the BBC’s Inside Out programme and the Inside Out team are going to film a typical day in the pub. This means that we’ll be open as usual this Wednesday. As regulars will know, Wednesday is the Schooner’s quiz night. The quiz starts at 8:30 and new teams or individuals are always welcome. Before the quiz, we’ll have a short acoustic set from Michael Rolf, 7:00-8:00.
Friday 31stThe Odels will be live in the Schooner from 8:00. They’re the best you’ll see in Northern Soul and Motown, so why not check them out.
Saturday 1st The fabulous Palominos are providing the entertainment on Saturday night. Expect 40s swing, 50s rock n roll, 60s beat.
Sunday 2nd Fancy a satisfying Sunday lunch? Remember we serve a fantastic Sunday lunch at a modest price. We’d advise booking if possible; we were full to capacity last week. After a nice meal, what better way to spend the early evening that see the truly talented Russ Tippins perform live. If you’ve not seen him, he’s an incredible musician.
Gateshead has a strong connection with Scotland, you know. Some Schooner regulars may remember the famous battle between Malcolm of Scotland and William the conqueror, which occurred just around the corner to the pub. OK, so this actually happened just up the road on Sheriff Hill, but it’s a close enough link for us to celebrate Burns’ night this Saturday. After all, Malcolm of Scotland almost certainly called in the Schooner before the battle for a quick dram.
