I like the interior of this place, quite welcome and cosy, yet spacious. The beer range is pretty good too, with Three Kings The Castle being brewed especially for the pub.

Not the best beer pub we visited in Newcastle. A good selection of beers on handpump, but a much smaller selection of keg and bottled beers than other pubs in the chain like Bacchus. Worth a visit.

Big well established Newcastle drinking barn. Usually a good selection, often with something out of the ordinary. Can get very busy, so can’t comment on the staff knowledge, but they seem to be ever changing, and mainly from the local student body. Good place to gather for a night out, and if you can get a space outside on the rear patio in good weather, that’s a bonus.

Ah another solid Newcastle pub. Roomy, spacious, easy, welcoming. Not like some of the others that have got more trendy stuff. We stayed at the Vermont next door (great hotel BTW).

Trad boozer by the high level bridge with a large front room with some partioning and a terrace outback over looking the river and Gateshead (you used to get a lovely view of the ’you’re a big man but you’re out of shape’ car park from Get Carter!) now demolished.
Normally half a dozen casks on with local options, Mordue and the likes.
Service always good even on a match day when the place can get busy.
Somewhere I always return to in Newcastle.

A very nice place with a good selection of local real ales on tap. (2011).

Large ornate Firzgeralds bar with the customary good service and good selection the chain normally offers. Plenty of real ale on tap and a decent beer bottle range for those wanting something different. Bit of class in the centre of Newcastle and a must stop on the way down to the Quayside.
