12th April update

In line with the current guidance, we’ll reopen on 12th April with outdoor table service. Social distancing will be observed.

Our understanding of the guidance is that we can only take orders from and serve customers seated at a table.

We’ll have seating for over 80 people in our new beer gardens. Tables will be available on a first come basis, so we won’t be taking bookings.

At busy times, if there’re no free tables, drinks will be available to take away in world famous Schooner two and four pint milk bottles to enjoy by the Tyne.

We’re in discussion with Gateshead Council about use of part of the Highway outside the pub, but it’s not clear whether we’ll have approval by reopening.

We’ll post updates when we know more. We’re looking forward to seeing you, it’s been a long time
