“Excellent small pub with a good range of beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Thoroughly recommend this place as a sanctuary from the upbeat, trendy and noisy bars in the centre of Newcastle. Excellent range of real ales, and a friendly and knowledgable barman. Bliss !

“"An absolute gem"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Superb ales,canny ham & pease pudding stotties, excellent bar staff, brilliant atmosphere and cracking decor. There are not enough superlatives for this "gem" of a pub.

“Great real ales, sound barmen.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Always make a point of calling into the Crown for a beer or 2 on my visits to Newcastle. We were not disappointed. Get away from the mayhem that can be Newcastle and step back in time with some proper beers.

“One of the best watering holes ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Selfishly, I am unsure about whether or not to review this place as I wouldn't like it to get too crowded! But this is an absolute gem. Doesn't look much from the outside, but inside - wow! A fantastically kept little watering hole. Charming little snug, lovely friendly staff, great drinks and ham and pease pudding stotties to die for.

“Last minute drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Called in here last night on way back from gig at the sage literally as they were calling last orders. Two guys behind the bar still said it was ok to grab a quick drink, ended up having a good chat with them, really like this pub, proper bar feel, don't think me mate was crash hot on the crisps though ha! Cheers for the age discription, made my night!
