The Northumberland Arms

I'd forgotten all about this pub, underground by Prudhoe Chare off Northumberland Street (that's in the Town, [Newcastle], for non-Geordies) and haven't been in it for years, not since I was a student in the early 80s. I spotted it out of the corner of my eye today and we went down the stairs. Just had a half, and Herself a bowl of soup. The main meals looked good, and you can tell that it's good value for money because most of the patrons were pensioners who'd braved the stairs. Coffin-dodgers always have excellent noses for finding good quality cheap grub.
