Take a look at the menu ….
The BBC made a rather excellent programme about the Schooner.
The episode of Inside Out, shown last night, aimed to show how tough things can be for an independent pub.
The episode can be found on the BBC iPlayer. It’s worth watching because it also covers the serious issue of male suicide.
Some pictures from the programme; regulars, the team and food.
Following on from last week’s success, we’ve another great line-up.
Wednesday 4th The famous (well, it’s going to be on TV next week) Schooner quiz. Great people, cool Quizmaster and free food. New quizzers always welcome. 8:30 start.
Friday 6th Barkin’ Billy and the Scrapyard Dogs will be bringing their unique style of rock ‘n’ roll and R&B to the Schooner. Our little pub will be rocking from 8:00!
Saturday 7th Something different for the Schooner, duo Jonny Sax will bring their magic to the pub. These guys will create the right mood by our fireside. 9:00 start.
Sunday 8th Beat Root Jam will be live in the Schooner around six. Expect extreme coolness, great beats and reggae.
Schooner pizza burgers are selling at a rate we could never have imagined. Today, we even had a takeaway order for 13!
So, we’d like to offer a new development in pizza burger-ness. For the brave of heart, that is.
How about a 32oz pizza burger? Served with a basket of Schooner chips, of course. All this for just £15.
… has landed.
We may be somewhat biased, but we think it’s gorgeous. Tested on non-vegans (and one vegan) this afternoon. Everyone loved it.
We’ve a lot going on in the Schooner this week:
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 31st The 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.
We’ve something very special in the Schooner this Saturday. A double bill from two of the northeast’s best punk bands, Rigid Digits and Toxic. This is going to be a night and a half!
There’ll be a lovely atmosphere in the Schooner this Friday evening. We’ve an Acoustic Outlaw gig, always worth seeing. A great range of tunes from a really talented guy.
