user reviews of Northumberland Hussar, Newcastle

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Northumberland Hussar is not the easiest pub to get to. It's a good 20 minute walk from Chillingham Road metro station. But I was encouraged by reviews I'd read and decided to finish off my Wednesday night here. The location is fairly unassuming. On approach to it, you think you're entering a council estate-type pub with keg beers only. But they had 5 fairly unusual ales - Hunters January, Brinkburn Geordie Pagoda, Firebrick Trade Star, Out There Angara Baltic Porter & Roosters Weekender. I ordered a half of the Porter, only to be told that I could only order a two thirds. I find this a very strange concept and one I'd seen before in the Brandling Villa in South Gosforth. What is wrong with the traditional half pint? Selling ales in thirds or two thirds does not make the place any trendier. I can't quite understand it. The Porter was vile and the worst beer I had during my visit to Newcastle. If you end up in Chillingham Road, my advice would be to go no further than the Chillingham itself near the metro station. Despite the promising ale selection, this place is pretentious and does not know how to keep its beer.

Popped in on Friday. A couple of good ales on. Only do thirds, two-thirds and pints for some bizarre reason.

This used to be an absolutely terrible bar. Got a change of management who completely gutted it, started again and completely turned it around. Great food, awesome cask and craft beers, and they seem to have moved on the dregs of society who used to frequent the place. Top marks Hussar! - 28 Nov 2013 02:36
