I gave the Cumberland Arms a 9/10 the last time I visited here in 2010. I don't normally bestow such a high mark and I very often mark a pub down when making a return visit. Not so here. The Cumberland Arms is still my favourite pub in Newcastle. It feels like a little bit of rural England slapped bang in the middle of a big city. The two rooms are just as atmospheric as last time. The one was being occupied by some musicians and singers. So I headed for the room on the left. Ales were North Prototype, Allendale Mosaic, Thirst Class Hoppy Couple IPA, Magic Rock Common Grounds Coffee Porter & Wylam Rapper. Ciders were Cock Eyed Copper Beech, Gibbet Oak Russet & Sampford Courtenay. I had the Courtenay, which was extremely dry albeit nice. A great pub and one of the finest in the country, in my opinion.

Lovely pub, a bit less 'beer club' than the free trade, but not as young person oriented as the Cluny. Fair dos to Ouseburn though, they have a good trio of pubs.

Cosy little pub with great staff, customers and very well kept, interesting beers. Brass needs a polish but other than that, perfect! - 28 Nov 2013 02:54
This is one of my Ouseburn crawl pubs, it is always well worth a visit, however on Saturday there was a beer festival on, lots of interesting ales but at inflated Rip-Off prices. Many of the beers were 4 per pint and they were nothing rare i.e. Marble Ginger 4.5%.
This is not what I have become to expect of the Cumberland and if this is to set a precedent I for one will miss this one out, you dont get ripped off in the Cluny, Tyne or Free Trade, nor do they inflate their prices during festivals - Beer or Local.

Old-fashioned, a bit grungy and not afraid to be uncool - so my kind of place! Good beer, free coffee refills, impromptu live music sessions, a nice little upstairs venue. I would say something like 'could do with a lick of paint', but too many pubs in Newcastle have ruined themselves in the past few years by doing just that. Stay as you are, Cumberland Arms!
