A favourite of mine for many a long year and it has come on leaps and bounds under Mickís stewardship, in more recent times. Superb quality beer, in both cask and keg form, thereís always a real effort to push the boat out in terms of choice. Best pub view in Newcastle too, with a beautiful picture window looking along the Tyne back towards central Newcastle and itís myriad bridges. Free jukebox, with the most eclectic choice of any Iíve ever seen, lovely pub cat and top pickled eggs!!
An absolute must on a vista to one of the UKís finest beer cities.

One of the better options for ale in the city. Any trip to the Tyne Bar should probably include a stop here and vice versa as this pub sits on the hill above it. The pub itself is somewhere between Bohemian and well-used in style with a bar that welcomes you as enter and a slightly larger drinking area behind this that includes an open fire to warm you up. Thereís plenty of real ale choice here too and youíll find some good craft brews at most times as the sourcing of beers for this place is fantastic.

Great bar, incredible selection for location, can find most beer styles & has the biggest range of Lambic beers Iíve seen outside of Belgium. Cask is always spot on & keg limited but exciting. Very worn in building but that gyarentees a nice friendly clientel. Definitely worth the trip from the city centre.

Well worth seeking out on a trip to Newcastle, just a short walk along the quayside. A good range of well-kept beers served by informative and enthusiastic staff. Great views too.

A favourite with real ale drinkers and arty trendies in Newcastle. Good interesting selection of well kept ales and cider. Slightly scruffy "alternative" ambiance, usually friendly staff, and the best view of the Tyne of any bar in the city. Nice outside space for the summer months.

A great place to sit down and warm up. The pub has great view of the Tyne, a cozy coal fire going, and a friendly and knowledgable staff that make the experience top notch!

Rustic, out of the way corner bar with a decent range of cask and keg beers. More suited to a couple of interesting afternoon halves than an evening out. Unless its a nice evening which lets you exploit the good outside space.

Brilliant bar, great bottle selection and the best craft ales on cask and keg. It might not look like much, but it is a beer drinkers dream!
