Visited on a Saturday lunchtime in July 2015. Probably the nicest place in Newcastle for a beer, plenty of comfy seating around a central bar, a really good selection of cask and keg beers from all over the UK. Picked up a lot of interesting new beers here. Service is Good, prices are decent. Plenty of space at this time but bet it gets much busier in the evening. A must visit if in Newcastle.

Centrally located, and well worth its rating as the best in Newcastle. Classically elegant, spacious and with plenty of seating (a good thing, given the crowds). Absolutely killer selection, but good thing the staff are so helpful in recommendations and in dispensing samples. Everything super fresh and enjoyed my two visits to Bacchus very much.

We visited here on both Tuesday 30th September and again on Wednesday 1st October 2014. It is not difficult to see why this pub is the top rated place in Newcastle, it is very good, though maybe not quite my favourite. Its a large and spacious place inside a big central horseshoe shaped bar, unsurpisingly draws you in like a magnet. The beers are listed ahead and up high in front of you as you enter. Comfy seats aplenty, a good spot for people watching perhaps. It is a good layout meaning getting to the bar and getting served is not a difficult task, though we did visit at quieter times so not sure what it would be like on a Fri or Sat night. The pub is near many other great bars such as Bierrex, DATbar, Lady Greys. Beer choice very good with a seemingly similar ratio of Cask & Keg. Service was good, a friendly place, really liked it here. The Indian restaurant smack opposite was also very good.

A fairly spacious bar with a modern interior. The beer range is very impressive with several guest beers in both cask and keg form. Aside from beers from the north east, you often see beers from Scotland.

Nice decor and a comfortable place to sit with a quiet pint. Service was pleasant and selection was pretty good. Some kegs, ale and bottles. Food was mediocre at best. Prices were decent. A very nice upscale pub with a good beer list.

You can’t really fault this place for its range of beers. There are plenty of hand pumps, interesting craft beers on keg and a good selection of bottles. Nice food and décor too. It could live with a few more seats though.

We visited Bacchus on Friday evening, so it was unsurprisingly rammed. Even so we had a good time. It’s actually quite a large place, with the bar near the centre of the room. They carry a fairly impressive selection on keg, cask & bottle. There were 7/8 cask ales on including 3 new to RB and not all bitters/golden ales at that! They also had about 12 "craft" keg lines, which on our visit included Beavertown, Tempest, Marble & Anarchy and a fairly wide bottle selection to boot. Plenty of good beer to keep you coming back, but it lacks the ambience of a few other pubs in Newcastle. Definitely a must-visit if you’re in ’toon.

Usually visit this place on a night in town. Always busy, good selection usually with something interesting. Efficient service, can be a bit pricey. Another one of those pubs I only seem to visit in company.
