Tooting rockabilly and country music, as well as live performances throughout the week, it makes for an eccentric drinking hole that's miles apart from the city of Newcastle. Inside, you'll find walls decked with vintage American memorabilia, and on the menu? Well, it's iced tea galore, with a sprinkling of moonshine, of course.
