Pub facilities/features:

General information: Simple, small, and understated. When it comes to city centre pubs, itís rare to find one that offers exactly what you want Ė the basics, nothing more and nothing less. And thatís what makes The Market Lane so important to the Newcastle city centre pub circuit. Found on Pilgrim Street, itís the perfect place for a lunchtime drink, a quick break from Saturday shopping, or as a meeting point for the start of a big night out. Soak up the atmosphere whilst watching football, or visit before catching a match at Stí Jamesí Park. It also has a great nickname, with a great story behind it, too. Legend has it that the Irish bricklayers who built much of Newcastle in the 19th century used to leave their hods (or Ďmonkeysí) in the passageway as security against their bar bill. So, next time you visit The Monkey Bar, youíll know exactly where that name came from.

Walk in here on a Friday night and the smell of all-day fart is overpowering.

Quiet, friendly pub: only one real ale, but that well kept.

Fitzgeralds pub but with only one real ale. It's been refurbished lately, but to no great avail. Decent jukebox, one decent barmaid. I suspect some of the clientele never leave.
