About the Pub

Newcastle's first micropub in May 2015 built into a recently refurbished railway arch behind Newcastle Central station opposite the site of the former Federation Brewery. Relocated to a larger arch on Westgate Road in May 2016. Larger than some micropubs and split over two levels, six handpumps serve an ever changing selection of real ales, with one dedicated to the house beer, Clever Chimp, from Three Kings Brewery. Foreign bottled beers are available. Check winter opening hours on Facebook
