I made a swift visit to the plush Hotel Du Vin (not listed on here), before moving down to the Free Trade. I last visited here in 2010 and remember leaving in a bit of a state. That day it was my 9th pub of the day and they had a cider festival on. This time, luckily it was only my 8th and the cider selection was much more limited - Dawsons 100, Pure North Valley Gold, Worleys Beatnik Billy & Kentish Pip Firespice. Ales were Thornbridge Jaipur, Allendale Gluten Free IPA, Roosters High Tea, Almasty Centennial Simcoe, Fyne Ales Jarl & Hawkshead Windermere Pale. It feels a lot more spit and sawdust than I remember it. Although last time I was drunk and it was packed. This time, my visit was much more relaxing. Upgrading my rating to 8/10. A really good boozer.

Visited August 2014. Lots of great beers, friendly staff, free jukebox, & fabulous views. Very tatty but who cares when everything else is so good!So good that we went back twice in 24 hours! And within short walking distance of very cheap premier inn/travel lodge hotels if you want an overnight stay in a great city.

Pretty much a perfect pub for those that like the 'fancy beers' in non fancy surroundings. Nice staff, punters and it's all about the beer. 10/10

One of those boozers that's crap, but in a really good way. Not much to look at and hasn't had a lick of paint in a long time, but it would probably spoil the place if it had one. Great beer, knowledgable, friendly staff and a really nice atmosphere. Great pub. - 28 Nov 2013 02:46
Loved this place. As has been said before, a proper boozer. Even the non real ale beers are interesting. There were 5 ales on with local reps from VIP, Durham and Anarchy and two from out of the area. Quality was spot on. If it's raining take time to study the black and white photos of Newcatle and if it's sunny sit in the garden and study the real thing from high up on the banks of the Tyne. There is a freqent bus service (Quay 2) that will take you back to the city centre from outside the Bike hub cafe below.
