Crown Posada, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumbria, NE1 3JE – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Busy city-centre pub with grand architecture, lots of locals in long narrow bar, tip-top beers and a warm welcome
This is the city's oldest pub and it hasn' t changed for decades. It's architecturally fascinating and certainly worth a special visit to see the elaborate coffered ceiling, stained-glass in the counter screens and the line of gilt mirrors each with a tulip lamp on a curly brass mount matching the great ceiling candelabra. It's a long narrow room, making quite a bottleneck by the serving counter where they keep Anarchy Citra St*r, Hadrian & Border Black Gate Bitter and Tyneside Blonde, Loch Ness Light Ness, Rat Cherry Stout and Wylam Gold Tankard on handpump. A long soft green built-in leather wall seat is flanked by narrow tables, fat low-level heating pipes make a popular footrest when the east wind brings the rain off the North Sea and an old record player in a wooden cabinet provides mellow background music. During the week, regulars read papers in the front snug, but at weekends it's often packed. It's only a few minutes' stroll to the castle.
