    Head of Steam

    Head of Steam

    This place seemed like a real student type bar when we entered. That was until we bought our beers. Six pounds fifty for a pint of beer and a wine was a bit excessive especially as the wine wasn't too nice and my Staropramen tasted as bad as Fosters. I think it's a live music venue and it's very smoky inside, so not a good place for a quiet drink. Music was good though and I imagine it's more enjoyable place if you’re planning a big night out.

    Crown Posada

    The Crown Posada pub was very close to our hotel so we stopped here a few times for a pint. It's probably best described as an old man's pub as it was a lot quieter than many other places we passed in the city. Most importantly, the beer was excellent here. They had a good mix of local beers (such as Jarrow and Black Sheep) and quality international ones like Staropramen. We had no problem getting a seat and we found it to be quite relaxing place. Certainly there are trendier and more exciting pubs in Newcastle but if you fancy a quiet, relaxing pint and a chat this is just the place.

    Centurion

    Enjoying a pint of Black Sheep in the Centurion

    Bars in railway stations are not usually places I recommend to visit but the Centurion Bar in Newcastle Station is a nice enough place to relax and have a drink, especially if have to wait around for a train or you’ve arrived on a long journey.

    The bar is the station’s former first class waiting rooms and there are entrances from both the station and from Neville Street outside.

    We stopped here for a quick pint after returning from a day-trip to Durham and again before the trip home to London. At 6 pounds for a beer and wine it's not cheap though they have a great selection of beers including Black Sheep, a good local bitter.

    The Old George: Decent Traditional Newcsatle Pub

    by eamonnfoley Written Jan 3, 2007

    We stumbled upon this pub by accident. It serves some Ales and several lagers / ciders on tap. I had a Grolsh, which was of surprisingly top quality on tap. I had originally asked the barman for a Newcastle Brown Ale, but was told they are only really available in working mans clubs or Wetherspoons! The staff were friendly and the inside of the pub very cosy and comfortable.

    The Gate!: Clubland galore

    In the Newcastle city centre, the Gate has a vast amount of pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants all situated in a nice convenient central location. All with in throwing distance of each other, places like Tiger Tiger, Moods nightclub and plenty others to choose from are fabulously located that offer some great food, great people watching opportunities, dancing and drinks. There definitely is no lack of nightlife here. And in close proximity to the Gate is Bigg Market which is also famous for its nightlife. The main areas for partying in Newcastle would be the Gate, Bigg Market, Central Station, and the Quayside.

    Dress Code: Typical club wear and dress code, some places don't allow jeans, although designer jeans seem to be accepted widely in most places.

  • The Long Bar: LONG BAR: Them crazy consoles

    by Doolence Written May 26, 2005

    As far as I'm concerned The Long is one of the most relaxed places in the Toon. Can be good crack at evenings, nice place for after work pint or even for pre-match drink.

    Drink prices are average for Newcastle terms, but probably the best thing about it are happy hour (5-7pm) consoles allowing you to win FREE DRINKS, drinks at 1/2 a price, 2 drinks at the price of one, or pay full price for your round if you're unlucky enough.

    Although there's fairly enough place to sit down, it is very likely you'll have to stand here.

    Not being too big, the Long still has two levels and two separated bars.

    Dress Code: Nowt special, seen both smart looking lasses and lads wearing their football colours.

    The Strawberry: Strawberries on Match Day??

    by weewatty Written Feb 7, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Strawberry at half 2 on a Saturday afternoon.

    The Strawberry is an historic pub being one of the few to survive the rebuilding which took so many of the city centre pubs. Rumoured to have once been a brothel in the 19th century (when it was attached to a hotel behind where it now stands).

    It is now the closest bar to Saint James Park and therefore the bar of choice to diehard Newacstle fans. It is now a modern, well appointed bar which despite its varying clientele, retains its "local" reputation.

    This bar is impossible to infiltrate on a match day, and you must be in very early to have any chance of getting served.

    Dress Code: Casual, very casual, football colours, so long as they are black and white, defo allowed!!!

    Gotham Town: Vampire themed bar (for all sorts of people)

    by dragon_embers Written Oct 15, 2004
    Gotham Town entrance

    This pub looks like a typical Gothic club, but it's not just that. It's also a regular pub where you could watch the news or sports.

    There are lots of decorative ornaments such as antique chairs and swords.

    This will appeal to anyone who likes a themed bar, especially a vampiric themed bar.

    Dress Code: It's a pub so anything is fine. As I said, all sorts of people go in there so it's no trouble whatever you wear. Mostly everyone gets on.

    Lloyd's No1 Bar- The Quayside: Sitting on the dock of the bay....

    by sourbugger Updated Sep 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lloyds No1 on the Quayside

    This historic building has been sympathetically restored by the giant Wetherspoons chain. The bar itself aims at a slightly younger crowd than you normally get at a Wetherspoons - and is branded within it's 'Lloyd's No1' chain.

    Prices are still however keen, and the food is reasonable.

    Of more interest to the tourist is the impressive outdoor patio area situated right on the Quayside in the midst of the bridges spanning the Tyne (see must see activity tip)

    A great place for a stop on a walk along the Tyne banks.

    Dress Code: pub

    Revolution vodka bar: Up the revolution

    by sourbugger Updated Sep 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Can you direct me to the rev bar ?

    It's normally the Wetherspoons pubchain that gets to old banks first and convert them into very large bars - but this time the Revolution chain got to the prize first - and what a good job they have made of it.

    The high ceilings, stylish counter and partitions make for a very convivial atmosphere if there are half-a-dozen people in the place, or if it is packed to the rafters.

    Regular promotions (usually based on vodka) are a common feature, as is a menu that often uses the Russian spirit of choice in the preparations.

    I'm a beer man myself, and Wetherspoons is only a few doors away - but a great bar all the same.
