Popped in here for lunch and a couple of pints on a quiet Monday lunchtime. Impressed with the decor and the beer, so ordered the chicken, leek and mushroom pie. Usually when something is described as home-made, the food arrives within five minutes and obviously isn't. This couldn't be further from truth with my meal. Twenty minutes later I had a superbly cooked pie with a delicious steaming mound of mash in front of me. I would have complimented the chef but that's a big tragic, so will do it here instead. Will definitely visit again next time I'm up this way.

Climbed up the hill from the Quayside, from where I'd visited the Broad Chare (not listed on here, but fairly good) to the New Bridge. Was quite impressed with this pub. Has a small, but quality range of ales plus Old Rosie cider. Beers on were Thornbridge Jaipur & Kipling, the excellent Elland 1872 Porter and Anarchy Blonde Star. Quite liked the interior too and the barman was friendly and knowledgeable. Plenty of football fans in on Tuesday evening, despite it being 20 minutes walk to the ground. Note the Kings Manor round the corner is now closed and turned into some kind of property rental place. Would return to this place. But there's always loads of decent pubs to visit in Newcastle.

I hate long walks between stations and pubs but when you come out of Manors Metro station you are right next to The Kings Manor and next door - The New Bridge so there wasn't a lot of walking involved!!
The New Bridge is a street corner pub in the University (Northumberland) area and is a very pleasant bar with a selection of locally-brewed real ales. Comfortable traditional-style decor in the Victorian/Edwardian style with mahogany fittings; screens and a carpet - and plenty of reading material to enjoy while you sup your ale. Food is available but at limited times so check first. TV screen but not intrusive. Not packed when I went there but I can imagine it does get very busy but it was a new pub for me and I shall return.

Love this bar. Used to go there with my girlfriend for many years. Always a good laugh and the beer pretty good too. Food canny as well. A bar where you can have a decent natter, where the music is background entertainment rather than blasting your lugs off. Many happy memories of this bar.

Back in the late 80's/early 90's, this used to be a proper pub; always full of local regulars, especially at weekends. Now I have no idea who it's supposed to cater for - probably the 'suits' and students.

I was in there last Saturday afternoon and the place was empty at midday; it used to be HEAVING! I was informed that 'we don't do food on a Saturday'. The half of Stella I had tasted of line-cleaner and was as flat as a witch's you-know-what.

Yet another example of taking a perfectly good, viable pub, tarting it up, alienating the locals and ending up with an empty pub on a Saturday afternoon. Serves 'em right. Unrecommended.

By the way..the pub next door (used to be Joe Wilsons, another thriving local) was also totally empty and THEY 'don't do food on Saturday' either. I rest my case.
