My penultimate stop of the night was the Forth. It's located up an alleyway leading down towards Central station. I've passed it many times, but never ventured in. Monday evening was quiz night, with a rather amusing hostess. There are 2 main rooms and a smaller and much darker back room, where I sat to try to get a bit more peace and quiet and to have a meal with my drink. Doom Bar is the regular ale. But they also had 4 guests - Roosters Little Bird, Ilkley Mary Jane, Durham White Gold & Adnams Longboat. I opted for the latter, which was cloudy and the worst drink of the evening. The burger I had was ok though.

Posh 'cool' pub where you can take the missus or your boss. Beer range ever improving and food is good - dinners or snacks. All comes at a price mind, but you never have a bad time in here

A new entry to the Beer Guide and a suberb half of a local dark beer, maintaining Newcastle's growing reputation as a place for exceptional quality real ale. Beer turnover on match days clearly helps, but I suspect is high consistently. Looked like a high quality place all round (similar to Defectors Weld in London). Roof garden too.

Quite trendy. 5 ale, all OK. Not the best place especially for a hotel. Not great for a quiter pint, but horses for horses.

Be very careful of the Blonde (female) Manager working in there if still working here from around Dec 2010. I was short changed at the bar when handing over a 10 note. I had just drawn it out of the Bank so I know what I was giving over. I ordered a drink and was given change of a 5.00. I pointed this out to the person but was rudely told, "I was mistaken, 'I was in the wrong'. I ask her to check the till where she then became nasty and refused, so I asked for the Manager she told me she was the Manager!! I was so shocked! that this person could act in such a way. Eventually I was given my money back but then took the drink away I was so embarrassed as I felt I was being accused of being dishonest. This happened last December in front of my Mother whom I was visiting Who lives in Central Newcastle as I now live Brighton. It was supposed to be a treat. I hadn't been back to my home town for over a year and my mum wanted to show me the new Forth. Well, with Manager's like that with attitude, I certainly won't be back. I was given no apology. I wonder if this particular person has short changed others. I used to live in Central Newcastle myself but I also spent eight years in Islington, London as a well as Brighton. Bar Staff have never tried it on! I only hope people like that eventually get found for the good of the public. So you've been warned. I should have written to the Head Office but maybe writing this was a better idea.
