Or indeed the Cumberland Arms... I miss Newcastle a bit. There aren't any better cities in England.
I knew someone would mention it! Only pub I've been in which will serve beer straight from the cask. So only the Bridge left to mention from my favourite pub crawl. I'm off out for a pint, cheers.

We must have run into each other at some point... :biggrin: Enjoy it, there's nowhere like Newcastle's pubs here (but lots of other compensations).

On the Bonded Warehouse: "Located in an old Quayside building, the Bonded Warehouse has miraculously managed to make genuine historical detail look like a tacky theme bar. With stone walls and an old wooden floor, and with the weight of tradition behind it, this place just couldn't fail, yet has still pulled off a spectacular disaster. " ;):laugh::wacko:

And the Blackett Arms: "I catch the eyes of the couple facing me; he's got his feet on the table and he's cleaning his ears with a beermat, and she's stuffed into her top like minced pig's knackers into sausage skin. And they're looking at us as if to say, "Who are you and what the **** are you doing in here?" shoot, man: Will this pint ever end?"

I'm in Newcastle from Sunday lunch through to Thursday last week of June.

Can I borrow somebody's Geordie pass? I heard you get a 10% discount in pubs and restaurants if you can prove you were born in the area.
Who told you that??

You still don't see many students in any of those places. Maybe some of the more interesting staff from the universities.
