user reviews of the Victoria Comet, Newcastle

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

After being refused entry here by an arrogant doorman on my last attempt to visit, I returned on a quiet Tuesday evening to a much better welcome. The Victoria Comet used to be an O'Neill's. But, it's now run by Nicholson's and it has a good number of real ales - St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale, Great Yorkshire Turtle Pale, Ilkley Joshua Jane, Hadrian Border Tyneside Blonde, Leeds Pale, Brew York X-Panda & Rudgate Jorvik. My only concern was that there was a lack of dark beers. The Joshua Jane was the darkest. But, it still wasn't my type of beer. I also noticed Thistly Cross Whisky Cask, which I would have had, had I not drunk one two pubs earlier in the evening. The interior was cosy, with a number of different drinking areas and plenty of TVs showing the Tottenham European game. This isn't a bad choice for a last drink before catching the train, assuming there are no incompetent bouncers. If there are, try the Newcastle Tap or the Head of Steam. Avoid the Waiting Rooms at all cost - my worst pub of the night, with questionable beer dispensing techniques. An alternative locally is to head to Forth Street, where there are a couple of micropubs in the railway arches - Beer Street & Box Social. A bit further along is a further micropub, the Split Chimp.

One of the Nicholsons chain pubs. Usually has up to eight cask beers on and a range of keg beers and ciders.
