About the Pub

Comfortable, friendly pub on the edge of town, consisting of a bright bar at the front of the pub and a more cosy lounge to the rear; there is also a snug and a long corridor connecting all three. Bought from Punch Taverns in early 2014, the pub is now a vibrant Free House, concentrating on real ale, as the name would suggest. There are up to eight guest beers on the bar, which are sourced from a wide variety of breweries; Mallinsons and Oakham are usually represented. Another star in Newcastle's ever-burgeoning real ale scene. The pub also aerves five guest beers by the modern Key Keg dispense.
