Popped in here for a pint after Newcastle's home match v Derby a couple of weeks ago with 2 mates of mine. Not a usual of mine,but one of the lads suggested it. As soon as we walked in though there seemed to be a terrible smell. Couldn't name it exactly, but it seemed to be like bleach. Walked up... More

A group of 11 of us ate from the Christmas menu. Amazing customer service from the staff, they couldn't have done more to make the evening go easy! We were also impressed that they had a record of our orders with our names to make it even smoother. Food was good but it was the service that really stood out!

Following our trip to exit - the escape game place round the corner - my friend, my husband, children and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the Forth during the Christmas break. We had never eaten at the Forth, despite having popped in for a drink from time to time, so didn't know what to expect, but always appreciate their... More

We called in here for a couple of beers during a recent afternoon out in Newcastle. This place has changed remarkably since the 1970s dive which sold decent Tetley's beer and hosted Newcastle United hooligans prior to train journeys to other northern towns and it has certainly entered the 21st century in style. The bar is scrubbed floor boards and... More

This is a handy place to meet as it's close to the central station. Been drinking here for over 20 years and it doesn't disappoint. Good range of drinks and a cool atmosphere.

First of all I have used this pub for decades and appreciate it as a pub. My wife and I visited last night at 6.00pm when there was a two day 50% discount offer on food. I received this offer online.

For the past three years, my wife and I have considered The Forth our 'go to place'. Whenever we lacked the spirit to chance somewhere new, we always knew we could come here for good food.
