Excellent small micro brew bar located in the Haymarket area which increases the ever growing number of micro brew bars in Newcastle.

The bar offers 6 keg and 8 cask beers on tap that change regularly with a good range of wines, ciders and spirits.

There is plenty of seating for a small bar and with the popularity of micro brews in Newcastle this should ensure the place is gets a steady crowd of locals and real ale/cask beer regulars.

There is a long bar which is to the right of the main entrance and when I was there early in the afternoon the place was really busy with a good atmosphere.

A small outside seating area is located outside the front of the bar with further seating at the rear of the bar.

A must visit if you are in the Haymarket area!.

Disabled access very good to main bar and toilets. Toilets are small and clean.

Price: Moderate.
