“Who knows it exists?”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

Small and almost invisible bar in Newcastle. Nothing on the outside screams to you "come inside". But we did after a few earlier drinks and meal elsewhere.

It is a very interesting place, probably mainly used as a hangout for students but with good staff, various rooms to enjoy your drink in and a chance to watch TV, enjoy a live DJ, play darts or sit at the bar and have a chat.

Quite unusual in Newcastle and despite personally being nothing like a student I really enjoyed the place and will pop back in.

“Very nice crowd”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 via mobile

Love this place. It is officially my favourite bar in Newcastle at present. There is a good selection of ales, the pasta is very good and they often have live music and open Mic. The staff are very acommodating and it attracts an interesting and international crowd. You can talk to anyone in there! Sometimes I've turned up and it has been closed but I always make a point in dropping by. Very chilled out. Distinct lack of antisocial vibe killers. Not far from the Trent, another very nice bar.

“Music and food!!”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Nice place in music for music- be it be folk, instrumental- can find emerging talents perform at nights. Food is good; alcohol- a bit overpriced. A hangout for people staying just near the university!
