Mid evening - busy - impressive decor. Got into a "discussion" with a local who didn't understand why there were so many different beers - "wine for taste - beer for thirst" was his point of view.
Anarchy - Citra Star4.10Good
Firebrick - Toon Broon4.60GoodA "Newcastle brown ale" - was what it said on the pump clip.

A superb location with access from the street and the main railway station. My first visit here, and one to which I am likely to return on my next visit to Newcastle.
