This is a weatherspoon pub so the drinks are cheap and cheerful. It is set in a lovely old building at the start of Stockton highstreet and has a nice area upstairs with a verander you can go out on and smoke.
Its quite quiet during the day and is good value for an afternoon pub meal (decent quality for the price) and drink - they also do a nice range of breakfasts and coffees. Gets busier and louder on an evening and you get a few more heavy drinkers in.
Not sure if they aloow in children as I have never seen any in there so you would have to check in advance.
I have been to the Thomas Sheraton for drinks many times, although I've never had the food there as I have horrible memories of a meal in another Wetherspoon's pub in the late 90s, so have never been keen to repeat the experience!
The pub is often the place to start the night in the town, as they always have good offers on alcoholic drinks. The building itself is set over two floors and is beautiful inside, with a good atmosphere and very clean toilets!
The only thing I personally don't like about it is that there is no music playing on a night, but I guess this may be some of it's appeal for the older generation who just want to have a drink and a chat, rather than a dance!
I would recommend the Thomas Sheraton for an afternoon drink, and also as a good place to start your evening out in the town.
As a kid the building slipped below your consciousness if you ever stumbled down this end of the High Street. It's the old court, from back when stockton had criminals, and it wasn't til 1998 when it opened that I realised what a terrific building it actually is. I'd been to the huge Moon under Water in Manchester, and this one is even better. Not as large, but still enormous, with a great huge open space in the middle where the old court was, then little cosy areas to the sides, with real coal fires, where the original offices were.
Back then the cheapest pint was Fosters at 80p, and for six months or so we had the place to ourselves; it hadn't got onto other people's radar. It was back in the day when Wetherspoon's food was cheap but awful, and I had many a plate of horrible sausages and mash.
Now it tends to be full to the gills with pre clubbers of an evening but is still nice and quiet during the day should you wish to get smashed in pleasant surroundings.
