NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
Bridge Hotel About ten real ales on sale in this gem of a pub which is fantastic inside and out.
Last visited May 2012.
Castle Garth
Centurion A stunning high room with walls and ceilings totally clad in superb ceramics. Excellent real ale as well. Conveniently located in the main station.

Central Station
Crown Posada A tiny corridor bar with a great historic interior including cut glass mirrors. Note the leaning pads below the drinking shelves. Excellent real ale. Posada is Spanish for inn, by the way.

Head of Steam A pleasant bar with excellent ales upstairs in this plain building, and there's also a music venue downstairs, I'm told. Nothing on the ground floor except the toilets.

Duke of Wellington Good grief! Good quality real ale in comfortable surroundings but I was the only customer on a Tuesday evening. Why?

Wetherspoon's Mile Castle A smaller than average Wetherspoon's in the Lloyds No. 1 category, but there's more upstairs I think.

Wetherspoon's Quayside A restored dockside warehouse contains a very busy Lloyds No. 1, packed with tourists and stag and hen parties when I visited on a Saturday afternoon.
