|Classic pub, not dissimilar to an Edinburgh bar, long and thin. Some excellent black and white pictures of old Newcastle adorn the walls. 6 ales were on and we partook of Tyne Bank Brewery pale and porter. Sited just off Quayside under the High Level and Road bridge it's only a 10 minute walk of the railway station but allow longer to walk back uphill.|

|A quirky little old jewel tucked away.|
Great atmosphere and beer, and deservedly crowded at times.
(You can always try and use the Vermont hotel lift to get up to the Bridge Hotel if you need more space to carry on with the real ale. You might be in luck even if a non-guest).

|Another classic pub and one of Newcastle's best - I always go here when in the city and the beer and banter are always good. Fresh rolls available but it is the overall atmosphere (narrow bar area/snug/rear lounge/music selection etc) which make it a great venue. Local beers prevail and there is usually a pretty good selection. You could easily spend a few hours in the Crown Posada without noticing the time - as I have done before!! A "must-visit" pub.|

|I can see where the immediately preceding contributor is coming from in terms of the Princess Louise and the Crown - indeed I think he (it must be a man) has bracketed together three of the grandest pubs in the UK.|
It's maybe worth noting however, in case scores of previous posts have not made it clear, that the Crown Posada is very much smaller than either of the others mentioned. And you will seek it in vain under any viaduct or bridge.
Above all, don't be put off going in with a female companion - on one fairly recent occasion I abandoned a lady of the female persuasion here for about 25 minutes while I went to check in to our hotel. She felt perfectly safe and was treated in a friendly and courteous fashion by those around her.

|An essential stop off on any visit to the Toon, the network of alcoves and corners recalls London's Princess Louise and Belfast's Crown Liquor Saloon. Ales are good and it's as traditional a place as you would like beneath the Victorian viaducts and bridges. My one quibble - not a single female present therein apart fom the bar staff so it's not the most varied of crowds.|
