Visited in February 2016. Part of the Sir John Fitgerald chain. It a big pub with impressive glazed cupolas in the roof but the decor feels a bit tored. Not in an actively unappealing way but, if you’re expecting something ornate you’ll be diappointed. The beer range is cask-centic with eight handpumps, mostly at the more interesting and of the spectrum. On this visit, they included beers from North Riding, Elland and Almasty. There are also a number of foreign bottles but I didn’t look at those. Well woth a visit.

Possibly the best of Fitzgerald’s chain, reasonably large establishment, well run with the usual local selection found in these bars.

The Bodega is a couple of doors away from Tilley’s Bar with the Tyne Theatre and Opera House sitting between them. It looks run down but somehow in a good way - a town pub, a bit rough round the edges and not at all what you’d expect a place called the Bodega to be like. Its charm comes mainly from two fabulous glass cupolas which give a sense of light and space. The service was friendly and there were eight casks on offer, about 35 bottles and a similar number of whiskies. (Visited 11 February 2016).

Huge single roomed wood panelled pub about 5 mins walk from Central station. Busy on a Saturday afternoon with sports fans. Good range of beer from the North East and Scotland. Well kept. Served really quickly despite being busy. Nice pub

We visited here on Wednesday 1st October 2014. This bar was just up from Tilleys bar and the O2 Academy on Westgate Rd. A much larger place than you imagined it would be once you enter. The bar is on the RH side in the middle section of pub there was a good number of handpumps on (didn’t count) but looked about 7-8. The selection was good with new beers from Oakham and Allendale. We got chatting to two chaps by the bar so I was unable to take in a lot more. I understand this pub is the current CAMRA award winner in the city, the beers were both in excellent condition. This pub did have a nice interior but owing to talking too much, I am hard pressed to explain it. Service was good, staff and punters very friendly, another very good find in the city.

A great pub with a good selection of beers, with beers from Oakham, Tempest and Fyne often featuring. Very, very busy on matchdays.

Ah, the Bodega! I have very fond memories of watching the majority of the 1996 Euro’s in here. Loads of bonhomie, good selection of beers, friendly staff. Beautiful stained glass domed ceiling. Well worth a visit if you’re in town.

Almost didn't come here but glad we did. Lovely interior as per all the Newcastle bars. Big cupola ceiling is fab. Loads of local real ales and ones from interesting breweries. Not as thick on the New World type craft beers on keg which is fine with me as I rarely drink that stuff in the UK anyway. I love Newcastle!

This is located in a pretty convenient spot if you’re on the way to St James Park. The bar doesn’t look like much from outside, but they do offer a solid selection of stuff on cask. I enjoyed a nice half of saison served in decent condition. The ambiance is slightly scruffy. The service is fine. The prices were actually higher than some if the other quality pubs in the area. Overall, it’s worth a look-in if you’re on the hunt for local ticks etc. There’s better options in the area if you’re looking for more than just a quick drink.
