Evening visit thanks to Mr P's recommendation. It didn't disappoint - not all ales noted - too dark - one was a World's End brew. I was told later this pub is nicknamed "the coffin". It is higher than it is wide.

Early afternoon and very welcoming. Elvis was being played on the vintage record player (a Dynatron Cavalcade)so I stayed for a second pint.

Late-ish evening visit, with the crowds thinning out a bit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Redscar - Poison4.00GoodA very dark ruby red mild. Smooth. Caramel. Not the sort of thing I usually much care for, but this is really good for its style.

Without doubt my favorite pub in Newcastle, I sat close to the record player and enjoyed the vinyl.

This is actually the first time I have ever been here – no surprise to find that I like the place. Quiet in mid-afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Yorkshire Dales - Carperby Calypso3.80ExcellentA very pale beer with a strong, bittersweet, hop taste.
Wylam - Gold Tankard4.00AcceptableGolden in colour. Plenty of hops, but dominated by a ‘cereal’ taste that personally I don’t like.

Superb atmosphere as ever in this classic pub.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Summer Wine (SWB) - Santo4.00ExcellentVery pale but unfined so with a slight haze. Very hoppy with strong citrus hop flavour. Good malt background and a good fruity finish. My score 16/20.
