Another addition to Newcastle’s thriving beer scene. This pub has been through a number of names and styles over the past decade or more, it’s been stripped back to the brickwork and houses a tiny microbrewery at the far end of the ground floor, producing ’Tavern Ales’ (however, the house brew is produced by Wylam). Nice atmosphere, popular and busy, can get a bit crowded with the Quayside drinkers. Good cask choice, three or four keg offerings and bottles in the fridge. Two floors of seating and an outdoor area, 4 x1/3 pint flights for a fiver available and good food.

Visited July 2018. Read that it should be placed literally under the Tyne Bridge made it very easy to find.. Within walking distance from train station and other pubs.. Huge room when you enter.. large bar along the one side.. Friendly service from staff, cosy welcoming atmosphere.. They have both cask and kegs.. As well as a nice selection of beers in cans / bottles.. They do a flyer of 4 thirds of the cask beers.. Defently worth a visit ( and revisit ) if in Newcastle.

Popped in on a Thursday lunch and it was nicely busy. Great range of beer on the 22 taps. 11 HP 11keg. Also bottles. Two of their own on cask when I was there. Looks like there is a great food selection also. The pub looks tiny from the outside maybe as it’s literally under the tyne bridge. But inside it feels much bigger. I recommend a visit if you’re nearby.

Brewpub directly under the bridge in Newcastle. Large room with main bar and brewing kit at the back and outside patio. Quite lively for weekday afternoon. Reasonable selection of cask ales and taps, with just one of their own brews available when visited.

Nice place, right under the bridge as the name suggests. Very attentive service, beer tasters willingly offered. Palate of 4 x 3rds available for £5. A couple of their own beers were on offer when visiting plus 8 or so casks of mainly local breweries. Other taps and bottles not hugely inspiring. Good to visit as a Newcastle brewpub.

Quite a large, modern pub right under the iconic Tyne Bridge. Multi levelled with good views from the upper floor, but no room to be had, we made do with a table downstairs. There is a slightly confusing set up on the bar, working out which are their own beers and which are guests. Good place though.

Visited in February 2016. Not to be confused with the nearby (as the crow flies at least) Bridge Hotel. This one is positioned directly underneath the Tyne bridge. In fact, the oroginal pub had to be demolished to make way for the bridge piers and and was rebuilt hard against them. Doing a good trade on a midweek evening. The atmiosphere was warm and buzzing. They have ten handpumps dispensing a mixture of their own Tavernales from the in house brewery and some interesting options from elsewhere. The three Tavernales were pretty decent. It all comes together very well. Highly recommended.

There’s a cluster of good places down near the quayside and this one is excellent. It’s literally under the Tyne Bridge - if you go out into the pretty walled patio the pub looks like a small, insignificant brick building butted up against a soaring riveted column which supports the bridge. A stunning sight. Inside it is quite small but feels spacious because it’s all open plan. The copper and steel brewing kit is at the back. They had ten hand pumps with three of their own Tavernales and they do tasting planks of four thirds. The atmosphere was buzzing and it was one of our top five places in town at this point in the trip - a constantly shifting list as there are so many good places to choose from. (Visited 9 February 2016).

Large modernish place with some bits of traditional stained glass. On two levels, and both bars were in use when I visited. Small patio as well. Three of their own beers, one made for them, and a selection of guests. Flight of four thirds (five pounds) covered the range of their beers, and staff were generous with samples of the others. Their beers were mostly tasty and creative. Most of the young staff were friendly and helpful, a couple were a bit aloof. Popular place, and worth a stop.

Situated a little way past Brewdog on the way down to the Quayside this is a newish brewpub. Had a decent selection of ale on with tasting flights available at a good price considering some of the rocket fuel on sale. Beer in good condition, staff friendly. Nice feel to the place. Has an upstairs part to relax in too.
