#106. Surtees Hotel, 18 Dean St, Newcastle
My hotel featured this cute bar off the reception area. But it only had two taps, and neither of them were working. So I drank a Bulmer'sIrish Cider. In hindsight, I should have ordered a Newcastle Brown Ale, but given how understocked the bar was, that would have been as pointless as carrying coal to Newcastle. Besides, Heineken owns the label and it is now brewed by John Smith's in Tadcaster.
