This pub may be easy access across from the station but I wouldn't recommend going. (well unless they are British then you're accepted). I would like to start off by saying the experience I had was the worst I've ever been treated in Newcastle and I have lived here three years. I went inside and asked for a drink and the girl behind the bar asked for my ID, (a valid question as I am young and I do look young but the way I was treated after was unacceptable). she looks at my ID (confused as ever because it was Canadian) and states that she did not know how to verify my age, (fair question if you've never seen an international drivers license) I point to where the age of the license was, (trying to help her out, as this is always the case when they cannot find it) she proceeds to call her Manager over. He barely looks at my ID and says "I am unable to verify if the license is real because he has never seen a Canadian drivers license, then has the nerve to then ask if I have any British documentation/passport on my person and if not he would not serve me " I tell him , that I am Canadian (which he should have been obvious from my accent) and that is my Canadian drivers license (again another point he should have been able to notice) and if there's any question about it being fake I have 3 other CANADIAN governmental ID's in my purse plus a credit card which will show that CLEARLY 1. I am not British so no I will not have any UK ID and 2. that my ID is real along with the others. he doesn't even bother to look at my other Canadian governmental documents, which shows nothing but arrogance. The manager then proceeds to say they have a 'list' of ID they accept which is UK and EU (like if he had seen an Austrian drivers license he would know what to look for). it is understandable that you may query a license you do not understand but the fact that they would not even look at any other official government documents is pathetic with a dash of racism. this is a problem I have NEVER had in any other place because any reasonable human being would verify a foreign ID with other documents (which I clearly had) they continued to cut me off and their attitude was nothing but belittling. so in short, only go to this pub if you're British, Scottish or basically very white because that is what gets you served. long live the Queen.
