The Mile

The Mile, South Shields

South Shields latest bar/diner

“The Mile” is situated in the premises that used to be the old Companions Club, just off Mile End Road, South Shields. It’s in the heart of our “evening economy” as our local council likes to describe the area, in Brigham Place surrounded by other smart clean modern pubs. A new bar/grill/diner where the beers are reasonably priced and the food is quite hearty.

The decor is quite plush and a stark change to what the old place looked like, much like it’s neighbour Yates.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/125 second f8.0, iso 200

  1. I’ve seen some of these changes in my visits to the UK. I’ve had a pint (or more) in a lot of traditional, dingy pubs but there are many that have become more pleasant. When my son and I were in London in January, the local was the factiously-named Queen’s Head and Artichoke in Albany Street. It approached elegance and had excellent food. A very pleasant change of pace.
