    15 Jaw-Dropping Bars And Pubs In Newcastle

    Grab a pint. (And yes, we know one of these is in Gateshead.)

    1. The Free Trade Inn, St Lawrence Road

    2. The Botanist, Monument Mall

    OPR/The Botanist

    The Botanist opened to the public just this week but is already gaining fame for its city-centre location, overlooking Grey's Monument, and its decor, which includes quirky furnishings, an enormous tree dominating the middle of the bar, and its rooftop area.

    3. The Bridge Tavern, Akenside Hill

    4. The Tyne Bar, Maling Street

    5. The Forth, Pink Lane

    Pink Lane has not one, but two quality pubs you'll want to pop in to. The Forth's a bustling place that combines the best of a traditional alehouse with the vibrant nightlife that attracts young adults. And if you can wind your way through the crowds to the stairs, it's one of the few places in Newcastle with a roof garden.

    6. The Town Wall, Pink Lane

    7. The Cumberland Arms, James Place Street

    8. Alvinos, Pilgrim Street

    9. Pleased To Meet You, High Bridge

    10. The Crown Posada, 31 Side

    The Crown Posada is a tiny old man's pub tucked away in the shadow of Newcastle's famous bridges. The second-oldest in the city, you'll be lucky to get a seat, but it's well worth trying.

    11. Florita's, Collingwood Street

    12. The Stand, High Bridge

    13. Hop & Cleaver, Sandhill

    14. Ernest

    15. The Central, Half Moon Lane (which is in Gateshead, but only just)
