Three words come to mind when we think of Newcastle Tap – beer and pizza. Is there truly a better companion for a slice of pizza than beer itself? (Go ahead, we’ll wait!).
Newcastle Tap serves large ‘tipsy’ pizza in 12” or 18” sizes. They hand stretch the dough of their pies and infuse it in beer. Doing so impacts the flavour of the crust and texture. They also have an impressive 24 draught beers and ciders to pair perfectly with your pizza. We’re sure they’ve continued to expand their beer menu since we’ve last visited.
If you’re unsure of what beer to pair your pizza with or vice versa, simply ask a Newcastle Tap team member. They are so friendly – part of why this eatery deserves to be on our list. They’ll walk you through both their beer and pizza selection. They’ll even offer samples so you can decide on the right drink for you.
Visit this pizzeria/pub/bar, which is conveniently located across Central Station, along Neville Street. It’s hard to miss, but if you get lost – ask someone nearby. Newcastle Tap has been around since 2016 and has made quite the name for itself.
Scream for Pizza made our list because they have something for everything. Craving red pizza? White pizza? In search of a vegan-friendly meal? They’ve got you covered, and you can expect quality food made with fresh Italian ingredients and a high-grade wood-fired pizza oven.
This establishment opened its doors in 2014 after owners Alex and Victoria quit their jobs to dedicate themselves to pizza making. They enlisted in the well-known La Notizia pizzeria, where they learned how to work with flavours and ingredients to make mouthwatering pies. We’ll have to say that their experience shows throughout the food they serve, another reason they deserve to be on this list.
We also can’t ignore the lively personality of this place. Guests are greeted with ‘cheesy puns’ everywhere they turn. And, the friendly staff is super helpful and makes your dining experience here worthwhile.
