The Tyne Bar (or Tyne.Com) used to be called the Ship Tavern, but was changed by its present owner, about 15 years ago. He came from the Egypt Cottage whose sign is on the wall in the Tyne Bar!
It is, naturally enough as the Ouseburn is at its front door, on the 'Ouseburn Trail' and I was introduced to it about a year ago by an attractive woman.
Although small, (the bar not the woman) it houses many a decent bit of entertainment whilst still retaining its ancient cosy character.
Four real ales are on tap so I thought I might as well try one. What a little tinker, eh! Wylam Brewery's Gold Tankard turned out to be an excellent choice.
