A Wallsend pub is searching for the best dad to dish out a fantastic Father’s Day gift.

The Walls End, in Middle Engine Lane, is calling on customers to nominate their dad for the chance to win a £500 experience day for two. They will also be named pub chain Hungry Horse’s Ultimate Dad.

The competition follows a survey that found just 17 per cent of respondents tell their dads they love them on Father’s Day, and 45 per cent of the dads responding secretly want a fuss to be made of them.

Pub manager Steven Foster said: “We realise that Father’s Day can sometimes be overlooked, but it was a real surprise to see just how many people aren’t showing their dads the appreciate they deserve.”
