Awful place. Loud, dirty and expensive.

Went in here with the family looking for somewhere to have lunch. there's quite a large outdoor area, but as it was raining and bloody freezing we wanted somewhere to sit indoors. It was busy with young folk ( most folk seem young to me these days!) nothing wrong with that! However, it was dirty and untidy, the carpet was filthy, tables were covered in glasses. We left!

Absolutely rank. Filthy carpets, sticky tables,and an unpleasant smell. Does the management have no pride? Oh, for the days when this was Bierrex.

I've been drinking there since I was 18 and im 24 now, so if I can still love the place after 6 years then they must be doing something right.

All my mates go there when we're in Newcastle and ive no doubt most of the bar staff must recognise us by now.

It really does just cheer me up when I walk in there because I feel like im home.

I had a joint birthday party upstairs and booked the entire floor out and had dozens of people in the place. All for just 40! Cant complain.

They have a huge toy grabbing machine FFS!!!

Ok, so the prices arent cheap, but if your a student then get off your ass and get a yellow card. It does make them cheaper.

Plus even if it is slightly expensive, you get a really good juke box (indie, rock, rnb, everything), comfy seats, nice bar staff, a friendly environment, two floors, a bear garden, two pool tables and nice food.

Plus in the 6 years ive been drinking there, ive only ever seen trouble a couple of times.

When some random bloke kicked off and that lasted 2 seconds and he ran off. And when some rich-boy freshers got drunk and smashed pints on the ground.

Yeah alot of people in there are potentious indie wanna-bes and Newcastle Uni posh boys. But who cares, let them be stuck-up-their-asses!

Me and my friends (locals) have been drinking there alot longer then most of them. Most of them are freshers and cant lay a claim to being true regulars.

Let the posh-wanna-be indie boys come and go. Us regulars are nice people and always have a smile on our faces :D
