A genuine gem. A real standing Victorian pub, unphased by the changing times, you can feel the air as you walk in, it feels like 1889 and you can imagine everyone has just walked in of the yards and docks and people are merry at the sight of a good drink and a catch up with their pals.

The place looks a little intimidating as you walk in due to the low light and narrow bar, but the folks here are very nice and there's a sneaky little smoking area out the back. Worth a visit, as it's captured a moment in Newcastle's prime for us all to sample today.

Great old place for a real ale - they had nine to choose from when I visited.
Great atmosphere with friendly and very attentive staff that know their ales.
I was told its one of the oldest pubs in newcastle but I cannot verify this. It is definately worth a visit if you like real ales and a warm welcoming atmosphere.
The seating, although having a classically old look is very comfortable too.

One of the oldest pubs in Newcastle and you can tell; the decor is beautifully old-fashioned. The range of beers and ales is great and the staff are lovely. Only downside is it's incredibly tiny and usually packed to the brim. If you're visiting Newcastle and fancy a pint then you have to check it out - but I tend not to go now as it's a pain if you're with a group.

On a overnight stay in the Toon & staying in the budget Tune Hotel next door, l thought l would call in for a drink or two.

I found inside, a very traditional pub, old time jazz music being played, good selection of beers, friendly staff & an interesting range of customers!!!

What more do you need!!!

Great for catching up with friends and family as the noise level is pretty low in there but great atmosphere all the same. Bar staff are great if you like your ale... Slightly condescending if you just fancy a pint of something plain and ordinary, but hey, ale is their thing so don't be surprised (or care)

This place has been a shining light to lovers of craft ales on the Quay side for a great many years. A little bit of quality on what can be a crazy Quayside. It's true it's small but so are many good things.
The Allendale Pale is always good here but do try some of the other local ales too.

5 by Jason Worles Review source

Excellent little place. The narrow interior, complete with a snug, the lively punters and the good selection of beers make this a Newcastle classic. It is a proper old boozer and one not to be missed when in The Toon. You'll end up sitting on someone's lap, but that's all part of the charm.

A unique place to enjoy an excellent beer. Time warp interior, well preserved. Lovely snug bar and wonderful wooden panelling. Friendly bar staff and ever-changing run of real ales. The pub 'jukebox' is a mid 1950s Dynatron record player perched at the end of the bar and in continual use.

5 by Richard Bean Review source

Newcastle's oldest pub. A pub unlike any other. A great choice of ales on tap. The perfect place to grab a drink after a walk along the quayside. I really can't recommend this place enough for fans of a good old fashioned proper pub!

5 by Stephen Shaw Review source

Real gem of a pub, very narrow and small. Good choice of real ales, bit like stepping back 40 years
The stained glass window is stunning and has mostly original period features
Been drinking in here off and on for over 30 years

5 by Owen Haren Review source

Good old fashioned boozer, complete with a snug and a record player. This bar has a good selection of LP's, makes a change from the modern day CD's. Also a good selection of real ales, a good day could be spent here drinking.

5 by Peter Heslop Review source

Favourite pub in Newcastle. Oldest pub in Newcastle too. Good selection of ales. Always have an old gramophone playing in the background. Very friendly staff. Can be busy at weekend (it's quite small) but I love it.

5 by Gillian Nugent Review source

A lot of people tend to like this, as it has a good selection. I find it's a small pub, with little room to move in, leading to an uncomfortable experience.
I've also found the staff can be quite rude.

One of the oldest pubs in Newcastle and it is a grade 2 listed building so has loads and loads of character and really quirky. It's like going back in a time machine. Look out for the record player behind the bar

4 by Ian Foster Review source

Proper nice old boozer. Lots of local ales on tap and a record player on the end of the bar. We were in on New Year's Eve and there was a spontaneous singalong to some of the old tunes playing!

5 by Sam Hockey Review source

It can be a little difficult to get in on a busy day but it is so worth the effort. One of the finest pubs in Newcastle and a definite place to go if you are only in the area for a short stay.

5 by Simon Colling Review source

Great wee traditional pub, definetly worth a visit if you are in Newcastle. Quite small though so can get very busy and we were there on a Thursday so I would imagine its busier at weekends.

5 by Niki P Review source

Probably the best cask ale in Newcastle if not the whole north East. Classic heritage pub with fine stained glass windows. Excellent service from knowledgeable enthusiastic staff.

5 by Rick Smith Review source

Great pub, that sells great beer! This pub has a quirky character with it's narrow layout and unassuming front. A great first pub as you start your crawl along the Quayside

5 by Jamie Gray Review source

Food was good but was just a bit too much olive oil in my pasta dishes... It tasted very good though. The atmosphere is very historic. LOVELY REALLY. The pizza was fabulous.

3 by Michelle Carey Review source

Absolutely love this little gem of a pub. So comfy, lovely warm welcome, brilliant ales and vinyl playing on the antique record player. Lifts my heart every time I visit.

5 by Julie Heaton Review source

Great place. Nice crowd. Old world feel about the place. Been back a few times now. Staff are canny. Go and try the place. Good beer(s) & soak in the atmosphere.

4 by Mark Aylmore Review source

Is a pub a few hundred years. Decoration and atmosphere is also great. It is offering the Tohoku region of ale and beer in the UK. Please try by all means enter.

5 by Mark Richley Review source

One of Newcastle's oldest pubs. Always a good atmosphere here with a great selection of beers & friendly staff. If you do manage to get a seat ... bonus!

5 by Shaun Review source

Beautiful old pub serving a fantastic selection of real ales. The locals all flock here which is a good sign. The record player on the bar is a great touch too

5 by Matt Hall Review source

Historical old fashioned pub with a small but cosy bar. Usually about 5 or 6 real ales on as with the other Fitzgeralds pubs. Manager also knows his product.

5 by Sean Andrew Sweeney Review source

Lots of space inside, despite the narrowness of the bar area. Good service and decent beer at reasonable prices. The building itself is rather interesting.

4 by Old Man Jed Review source

Great British pub, good selection of beers, lagers and ciders in a historic pub the the friendliest locals you could wish to meet. A visit is a must.

5 by Suzy Day Review source

Excellent pub can be a tight squeeze on busy days but a fine choice of real ales makes it worth the effort don't miss it if you are a tourist

5 by Derek Reid Review source

Best boozer in the Toon. Loads of proper beers and plenty locals. Grown up crowd. Music is an old record player on the bar. I lime this pub.
