Real Ale Ray left this review about Newcastle Tap

A beer drinkers haven, right opposite the train station. The main features in here was the raised cellar above the bar area. The left hand side cladded wall was made up from old wooden barrels. I especially liked the polished ash finished bar counter. The interior also had a concentric patterned tiled wall on the right hand side, large industrial hanging lamps, seating was in the form of light brown leather banquette seating. The beer choice on our visit was twelve keg, six cask, two ciders, all served form taps along the back wall. There was also an extensive range of bottled and canned beers. I went for the Allendale Golden Plover, which was in good condition.

Aqualung . left this review about Newcastle Tap

Unlike other venues in this pub chain it's not set in a station building but in a rather dull office block conversion over the road from Newcastle station. Despite that it makes for a pretty good real ale venue with a glass fronted cellar above the bar. It was quite busy on my Friday afternoon visit.
There's a huge array of taps on a wall behind the bar counter but only 8 are cask. I found it quite difficult reading the names behind the bar but I went for a York Sunne (£3.60) which was in good nick.
Despite the bland building it's worth a look.

A brand new pub converted from an office block. It's one room with the bar straight in front of you. There's interesting wooden panelling on the left hand side. All the beers are stored upstairs, you can see the barrels through the display window. There are no handpumps the beers are dispensed through taps at the rear of the bar. Food is available from a limited menu. My pint was in excellent nick and Ms CAMRA liked her red wine. We'll be coming back here again.
