Quiet in here. Barman and customer discussing the universe and somehow Hitler got involved!

Joule's - Moon Madness4.70GoodABV on clip is 4.666%! Far too sweet, apparently this is Joule's take on a mild. Very smooth and in fine form though.

Good atmosphere and with the dark wood it actually feels very Germanic and welcoming. Good to see a Joule's pub with a decent selection of guest ales.

The pub is found in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, ST5 1RE.

Charming, old-fashioned pub in the town centre, the oldest in Newcastle, dating from the 14th Century; beware low beams when entering. The bar is on the left of the entrance, whilst the right hand side forms a cosy snug. Very much brightened up by the new management team; although under the ownership of Joule's, four of the guest beers will come from other breweries, whilst the fifth will be the Joule's seasonal ale.

We have visited this pub 4 times, seen 16 different beers and tried 7 of them.
