What’s on Offer at Newcastle Tap
There’s so much worth raving about when it comes to the food and drinks at Newcastle Tap.
Let’s start with what’s on tap. This pub serves 24 draught beers and ciders, including 8 cask lines and 16 kegs. Not sure which option is right for you? Ask the bartender to try some samples. They’ll be able to guide you through the process of selecting the right beer for your taste buds.
Once you nail down your drink, we encourage you to pair it with a slice of pizza. This eatery makes 12” and 18” hand-stretched pizza infused in beer. The dough is made fresh every morning using authentic Italian ingredients. And, the inclusion of the beer adds extra flavour and crispiness. Personally, we think they nailed down their pizzas when it comes to taste, texture, and looks!
Looking for vegan or veggie-friendly options? No problem. Newcastle Tap has this as well as gluten-free options. For good practice, if you’re allergic to any food, be sure to let the staff know before placing an order. Once you have your drink and pizza, all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy. Cheers!
We’d rate Newcastle Tap highly when it comes to appearance, food, drinks, customer service, and cleanliness. Not only do they serve the largest selection of beers in Newcastle, but they also stock up on wines and spirits for those who aren’t too fond of beer. And, their pizzas are clearly made using a wood-fired pizza oven. We have no complaints there!
