The Kings Manor on New Bridge Sreet, appealed to me as an alternative to the horrible 5 o'clock city traffic jam I happened to be stuck in the other evening.
I don't think the Kings Manor, once the Moot, had been opened until very recently but it is certainly a proper real ale pub. With no less than 10 hand pulls to pick from, I parked up just around the corner in Argyle Street and 'booled' in.
Polished wood floors were the order of the day so I 'plonked' in and ordered a pint of Hadrian's Tyneside Blonde. Very nice it was too.
I must come back without the car to sample more of the ale.
