Review:  


Newcastle United theme pub with football memorabilia from the club on display throughout. The pub has two main entrances to the front and side with a long bar and a wooden floor. There is plenty of seating with wooden tables and chairs, and more comfortable lounge seating around the window. There is also ample standing space.

The decor is a mixture of orange and olive colours with wooden panelling on the walls and wooden beams to the ceiling. There is smart lantern drop down lighting over the bar. An assortment of football antiquities and Newcastle Brown bottles are strewn about the place. There are several TV's on show located at the entrance and next to the bar.

Live sports are shown with all live football and six nations rugby featured. A large 42 inch plasma screen has recently been installed to give even better viewing of live games. Regular music is on play at most times with a juke box located to the left hand side of the bar. Several games machines are also on display. At the rear of the pub there is a small area where the pool table is housed. There is now a new outside terrace area that is located upstairs with tables and chairs and two plasma TV screens.

The pub gets very busy on match days with it being so close to the football stadium. It is frequented by mainly a football crowd, locals, students and business people. It has also been known to attract Newcastle footballers and business executives from the football ground.

Disabled access is reasonable. Toilets to the rear of the bar are small and clean.



Price: Reasonable.
