user reviews of the High Main, Byker

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

Chose to stop here for lunch on my North East trip last weekend, and I’m glad I did. In may only be a Wetherspoons, but it’s certainly one of the better ones. Looks small from the main street frontage, but when inside it goes a long way back. Although open-plan, I’m not sure you can see from one end to the other due to objects in the way.

Anyway, the bar is on the right and the section round it has been sort of cordoned off, with the seating inside it being all high stools and shelves for resting pints on. The rest of the seating being normal chairs and tables. Other unusual featurs for a Spoons are a fireplace and logs for burning (not actually in use), and abstract artwock on ceiling panels.

And the beer is good too ! Perhaps most importantly it is a Doom Bar free zone. Although it only has 10 handpimps (less than some Spoons), they managed to have 7 guest ales available. And all local as well – I’d never heard of any of them ! I chose the Firebrick Trade Winds, which was a very nice IPA.

They were even doing special offers on curries, but unfortunately I didn’t notice before ordering my chilli.

7/10 – it’s a Spoons Jim, but not as we know it !

Very long corner site Wetherspoons. Usually has 8 real ales on from the usual suspects (Greene King etc.) and some local breweries (Black Paw beers seen here regularly).
