An excellent range of delicious beers and the taps are regularly rotated with the more popular beers such as Hop Hog usually available when you visit. This place usually has a decent crowd present and is a mix of older kents with a few tables of younger hipster types wearing engineer caps and playing Boggle. When I first visited a couple of years ago the food was fantastic. They had a really solid selection of pub grub at a fair price. They have since moved onto some sort of limited German Beer Hall menu consisting of enormous servings of meat and not much else. I love meat but I donít always want my meat served with a side of additional meat. The decor is pleasing and my only criticism is limited outdoor seating and the ubiquitous and annoying large screen tellys on the wall. I go to the pub to chat and make merry with my friends, not be distracted by a TV screen in my vision the whole time. The service has always been excellent with smiling staff always able to tell you about the different beers available. If I want to drink good beer in Newcastle, this place is my first choice.

The staff were great, really knowledgeable and quick. They had 20 taps and a hand pump with a wide range of local craft beer, not the biggest range of bottled beers. I really liked it a lot.

Good selection of craft beer, 20 different taps. Food is also good, only had the pizza. Pretty busy spot on a friday afternoon/evening. Not cheap, but worth the extra cost.

Great venue and a great choice of Aussie craft beer. Have to say I disagree with the previous reviewer - Iíve always found quite a few interesting choices when Iíve been drinking there. Based on their current list (which they keep reasonably up to date via social media), Iíd say about 10 out of the 20 taps are beers Iíd like to try and a few of those are pretty hard to get elsewhere. Food is basic and probably a tad on the expensive side for what it is.

Really nice job refitting the old view factory, it is funky. Service is slow but OK. Good food and great value beers; I suggest the tasting paddle. My biggest issue is the beer selection. 20 taps are great, but the standard of the beer on offer has been really disappointing. I love Australian beer, but on my visit today only 2/20 beers were solid. The others were just average offerings. This is a place that is great for those new to the beer scene, not those who want the something unusual or special.
