user reviews of the Bull's Head, Newcastle under Lyme

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Came back here sooner than I expected, as I was briefly in Newcastle at lunchtime last Saturday, so decided to try the food. I had the chilli (with rice) for £7. Not cheap, but the portion was enormous ! Very nice and pretty damn hot too. I needed warming up as well because it was an utterly miserable day, and it seemed almost as cold inside the pub as outside ! I sat in the “snug” next to the fire, but it didn’t help much. Still a pretty good pub though.

BTW, the official address is Lad Lane (a narrow alley off Ironmarket) and the postcode is ST5 1RE

This now appears to be called the OLD Bulls Head and is a Joules pub. Has had some of the usual Joules “treatment”, but not as much as most of their pubs – perhaps because it’s genuinely old with low beams and uneven floors. The bar is to the left from the main entrance, and the area to the right had a roaring fire. Some of the tables had lit candles on them too, which was a nice touch. Various old prints / photos on the walls and a row of old toby jugs above the bar.

The beer range was a bit different from the normal Joules range, in that as well as the usual 4 Joules beers, there were also two guest ales. I’m not sure if this was intentional, but there were beers types that Joules doesn’t produce themselves. I had the Seven Brothers Stout Porter – and very nice it was too. They also were served Joules own keg lager and IPA – the latter I’d never seen before.

I didn’t eat there, but the menu seemed to have a reasonable range of pub food, lite bites, a few mains, sandwiches, jacket potatoes and burgers. Will probably try the food next time I visit Newcastle – and I definitely intend to be back

7/10 – a pretty good pub

characterful little boozer. always a good quest ale on. regular beers are old speckled hen and bass (i think). the locals are interesting and a good laugh. the seating area out the back was lovely to relax in with a few pints this summer

Definitely the best boozer in Castle town centre.
Good beer (Titanic, Speckled Hen when we visited), great music, nice bar staff and friendly clientele, its no wonder this place is always packed.
