Whitley Bay Friends
- We thought that the facilities were in need of an upgrade: the shower was temperamental , the grill didn’t work very well, there was no grill pan and parking was a problem. We had two cars and found it annoying that we got a note attached to car because we parked in the pub car park despite the fact that:
We used the pub every day we were there
The designated parking area was within the pub car park anyway
Parking in the designated parking area restricted the entrance to the car park
The note advised us not to park in the pub car park out of hours which would hardly seem to be an inconvenience to the pub as it was shut!

Hi David, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry to hear that there were some issues during your stay. I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvements which I have investigated. The owner has assured me that the shower works perfectly when the instructions in the information pack are followed and a brand new cooker is expected very shortly. Despite the best efforts of the owners, the pub will not permit car parking at any time, however, there is plenty of available on-street parking available in the village,
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
