The Huntsman Pub is located in the North East town of Blaydon, The Huntsman is in the heart of a densely populated residential estate with a strong following of regulars along with a high footfall of passing trade. This pub is decorated beautifully internally and externally to a high standard with the introduction of a commercial kitchen. Blaydon stands close to the Tyne with the A695, a key road from Gateshead to Hexham, passing through the town centre. Between this main road and the river is the railway and, beyond it, in a bend of the Tyne River is the industrial district of Blaydon Haughs with these spectacular views seen from the dining room of the pub. Despite being a largely urban and a historical industrial town, there are various rural aspects to Blaydon and miles of countryside in the surrounding areas.
