The Percy in the Haymarket used to be good,but ages since i was there. If you want to go a little further then The Avalon in Whitley Bay is a biker pub.
Think the Metro runs there

No proper biker pubs left in the toon that I know of. Percy's still there up the Haymarket but it's nowt like it used to be. Trillians is a rock bar with a good jukebox but more gothy studenty than biker. The Dog n Parrot and Head of Steam both near Central Station are alreet boozers, if a little studenty. S'all a bit sad really if your not into shite music. Trent House is an old scooter boys hang out. That's sometimes a laugh. Bikers usually end up where the bands are. The Star, The Tyne etc. Avalons a good call. It's a BnB/Bar/Bikers Cafe. Quiet when there's nowt on though.

Maybe.
The pub I was thinking of was on the same side as the Hotspur but further up towards the town end of things....always had a few bikes outside, never any trouble and decent beer. Really old building.

There used to be so many decent pubs in Toon...shame they all seem to have gone...

The Haymarket near to Handyside Arcade?

A few Tyne and Wear HA used to get now and again, usually ended up with the last pint in there, when I did always had bad guts the next day ..... never learned !!
