Meh, not what is was or maybe everyone has caught on and started doing it better, who knows? The american bar theme that's going on looks tired and dated.

Saying that the location is excellent and it's lovely on a Summers day meeting up with friends drinking under those massive arches.

However the beer, tunes and ambiance are being done better elsewhere, in fact I can think of three better bars not even 5 minutes walk from this one.

Great pub, decent beer, good free jukebox and a great outside venue for live music (the arch of the Glasshouse Bridge really does the acoustics justice). Often busy but for good reason!

Decent enough bar. Excellent bottle selection. Certainly one of the Ouseburn run.

THE best pub in Newcastle upon Tyne. I love the location and the relaxed feel. It's perfect in summer, but worth a visit anytime of year. A brilliant jukebox, nice beers and a good range of butties, snacks and light meals. The Tyne is a MUST visit.

I wasn't sure what to expect after leaving the Cumberland Arms and heading down towards the Tyne. But this was also a good pub. In many ways, the pub has an American feel to it. Although it has a few original British style touches. Loud ambient music was playing, possibly from the old fashioned free jukebox. An outdoor yard area seemed to be quite busy. Three Wylam beers were available - Houblon Nouveau, Collingwood Festival Ale and Gold Tankard. Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon was the one real cider on. Not quite as good as the Cumberland or the Free Trade Inns. But still a fairly decent pub in its own right.

Nice pub to finish an Ouseburn crawl - at river level. A really good selection of local ales, and plenty of choice if that is not your thing. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. The Tyne will remain a regular stopping point on my Newcastle/Ouseburn expeditions.

I like The Tyne. Good during the summer and always seems busy. Not bad at all.

A great boozer, worth taking the detour out of the city centre for, as it is located in the Ouseburn Valley, which is flourishing into a Mecca for real ale lovers. Indeed, the choice here is more varied than the city centre. The pub is located where the Ouseburn flows into the River Tyne. It takes about 10 minutes to get to this place from the Quayside. The jukebox is excellent if I remember correctly, and the beer selection great. The beer garden is superbly located under a viaduct carrying the road across the valley-no getting wet here then! Very loud and busy when live music is on, but a great atmosphere with it.

Used to love this pub when I lived in Newcastle so went back for my stag weekend recently. Still brilliant. Good selection of well-kept beers. Friendly staff and locals. Glad to say it's still one of my favourite pubs in the city, and along with Free Trade, Ship, Cluny and Tanners, makes the Ouseburn one of the best places for a night out.

Good beer selection including real ale and Belgian beers. On my last visit they were serving Liefmans Frambozen which was delicious (if you like fruit beers).

The live music is a great draw for many of The Tyne's drinkers. You can combine a visit here with the nearby Free Trade Inn for a mini-pub crawl. The location is definitely a big part of this pub's appeal and it really comes into its own on Bank Holidays or when there are daytime events down the river.

Real Ale drinkers mecca, with a scenic walk around the Ouseburn to get there. What a gem of a beer garden under the arch!!!!

A superb pub, one of the best. great building. Lots of live music. Lovely atmosphere. Excellent staff. Varied and tasty bar food. Top jukebox. Great for cosy winter drinks or summer afternoons. Absolutely top boozer, no question. Spent many an afternoon there with G Phillips, and a few on my own - it's that good. Go today!

A good place to meet original GEORDIE YOKELS and do your ears in at the same time.

The best live music bar in newcastle

Wonderful: great music on 4/5 times a week and excellent real ale... one of the homes of the Jumpin' & Hot Club.

Interesting selection of toasties too... not standard cheese n onion!!

In the 'Ouseburn' delta and hard to find, but a real gem.
