Tyne Bar History | Our Story so Far
In its former life, The Tyne Bar was known as The Ship Tavern; a notorious establishment better known for the horizontal refreshment on offer in the rooms upstairs than for the liquid refreshment at the bar.
Since its refurbishment in 1994, however, The Tyne has provided Newcastle with a very civilized blend of wonderful beer, great music and innovative food. Whether you want to sample the very best of locally-brewed real ales, or simply enjoy a coffee in our unique beer garden, the Tyne has something for you.
Pull up a stool at the bar and choose from a wide selection of locally-brewed craft ales, continental lagers, spirits and wines. Our menu features everything from homemade burgers and gourmet hot dogs, to burritos, nachos and healthy salads – as well as daily specials and a different Free Food menu every Tuesday from 7pm-9pm.
Located in the heart of Newcastle’s Ouseburn Valley, the city’s cultural oasis, The Tyne Bar has been a local favourite for more than two decades.
Famous for its laidback atmosphere and an unwavering commitment to FREE live music, The Tyne Bar is the product of more than 30 years’ experience in the Newcastle pub scene…and we think the pedigree shows.
Operated by the same people who brought you the legendary Barley Mow and the Egypt Cottage, the pub boasts a signature FREE jukebox, a waterside location, and a distinctive beer garden framed by the redbrick arch of Glasshouse Bridge.
