About
The Tyne Bar has been a mainstay of the Newcastle pub scene since November 1994, when it helped to kickstart the cultural renaissance of the city's Ouseburn Valley. Building on the legacy of pubs like The Barley Mow and The Egypt Cottage, on nearby City Road, the pub boasts free live music events, craft beers, artisan coffee, food promos, a free jukebox and the legendary beer garden beneath the bridge.

Visited for lunch with work friends, what a great little place. Nice outdoor seating area and great food selection. The chicken wrap was delicious and great value for money. The burgers and hot dog’s looked great too! Service quick and friendly.

The only negative was although it’s dog friendly, the table opposite us had some aggressive dogs some of which were not on leads and were trying to attack and bark at other dogs passing the bar. I think if you’re going to let dogs in the seated area outside, putting them on leads should be mandatory. For this reason i would not recommend taking young children here or those easily scared by dogs.

We were given a discount voucher for this pub so in need of refreshments and the loo off we went.
We both had the wraps hubby fishfingers I choose the chicken one, be warned a little spicy but nice.

Had a very unpleasant greeting with one of the bar members who wrongfully claimed I was “slagging her off” to my friends after I had been ID’d, when in fact I was joking to my friend saying how I take it as a compliment to me still looking young. She proceeded to embarrass me infront of the whole bar raising her voice and claiming I won’t get my drink even though I tried to explain how she must’ve misunderstood what I’d been saying. I’ve never been spoken to by a member of staff so disrespectfully before and with this only being the start of my night was let down as I no longer wanted to stay there. It’s a shame as I was really looking forward to having some drinks and food as from first looks it looked good.

Enjoyed drinks here last weekend. Sun shining, nice cold drinks in the sunshine, the outside area is a sun trap, staff all so friendly and accommodating.

I don’t know man.. I WANT to love this bar given the location and variety of drinks but there’s an air of arrogance and delusion of grandeur about the place. Example- asking for a sample is not uncommon- to be asked if I’d already tried it because they “are too busy for time wasters” is just idiotic and rude. After that their was just characterless service.
What’s the deal man? You have to pass the bartenders “are you cool enough to be here” test?
Nice products- reasonably priced- amazing location but drop that hipster BS man!

Only popped in for a quick pint but an excellent pint and the smell and appearance of passing food made us stay for something to eat. I had a surprisingly good Chicken Milanese with a really good salad and my husband had a burger which he rated. It's cosy inside and the staff were friendly and obliging. We'd definitely go back and eat there again.

No toilet seat in a bar that serves food an absolute disgrace and embarrassment should be closed down

You can be assured that our toilets all have toilet seats and our facilities are inspected regularly. If a toilet seat has gone missing (we can only speculate, but let’s say someone thought it was funny to walk out with it) then it would have been helpful to let our staff know so that we could investigate and make things right. I trust you did that before going straight to this review site? We have incredibly high standards at The Tyne Bar. And as for our catering, we have a 5-star rating from the Food Standards Agency. Things do go wrong from time to time, as with any business. All we ask is that our staff are informed.

No stag dos, what? Cults questionable, which is fair. To quote our favourite president, SAD. There is room for improvement.

Two stars because we couldn’t accommodate your stag do? That’s a very generous rating for a bar that you didn’t even set foot in. We’ll take it!
