We want your occasion to be just right and with that in mind we would be delighted to show you round our facilities and discuss your plans in detail.

We're flexible with seating too and we'll discuss these arrangements with you so they fit the needs of your function.


Our versatility allows the right atmosphere and ambience to be created for any occasion. Self contained within Temple Park Centre, The Waterline is tastefully decorated with prints depicting scenes of our beautiful coastline. Subtle seating fabrics complemented by brass and antique pine fixtures and fittings add to the sumptuous feel of the venue.

Good food...fine wines

Our chefs share a passion for great food and wine and The Waterline has earned a reputation for providing quality cuisine. From a finger buffet to full menu, we set high standards and always aim to please.

The right service

Our experienced staff are dedicated to their role and will ensure whatever the event that everything is perfect down to the smallest detail. Weddings are a speciality and we always try to add that finishing touch so that the day remains memorable not only to you, but for your families and guests too. We can provide special facilities for the bride and bridesmaids to change and for the security of gifts - it's all part of The Waterline service.

The right options

Talk to us and you'll be pleasantly surprised at the special booking options we have available. Where it's appropriate we can even offer free facility hire, disco and DJ. We can cater for up to 70 seated guests from our full menu, whilst in a different arrangement complete with dance floor and disco The Waterline can accommodate up to 150 guests for a buffet. The Waterline also provides a comfortable location to host meetings, small seminars and presentations.

The right choice

The Waterline combines the features of a modern lounge bar with purpose built dance floor, disco console and contemporary lighting effects. We're ideally located to serve the community of South Tyneside and surrounding area, close to major routes and with the benefit of on-site parking.
