Standing beneath Warden Hill at the confluence of the North and South Tyne rivers, The refurbished Boatside is surrounded by woodland footpaths and bridleways, and has fishing rights on the river. The name of this stone-built country free house harks back to the days when a rowing boat ferried people across the river before the bridge was built. Cullercoats, Wylam and Mordue ales are on offer in the bar with its log fire and dart board. Meals are served in the conservatory, restaurant or snug, and include sharing platters (Tex mex; from the sea; and butchers block); fish pie; curry of the day; pan-fried chicken breast in the style of coq au vin; and braised steak. The Boatside welcomes children and dogs too.
