Three Kings Brewery ale
Oct. 2021 • Friends
My twin brother Stephen and I decided to drop into the Split Chimp as we were wandering around this part of town and what a great find and what a great time we had.
Walking in and I knew I would enjoy my visit here, a cool industrial style decorative scheme, set over two floors, eclectic decor and furnishings and plenty of seating options spread throughout this bar ,its a very cool bar indeed.
We were here on a Sunday afternoon, greeted warmly by a very pleasant member of the bar team, after a quick study of their beer range which I must say is well thought out we both opted to have ale's from Three King's Brewery, these were served in pristine condition, we just kicked back, chilled out and planned out the day ahead while sipping our ale's.
My ale was really good, a crisp, well balanced ale bursting with taste, a delicious aroma and aftertaste with a slight bitter finish, a really refreshing ale on such a hot afternoon.
We both really enjoyed our ale's in here, only stayed for the one each before moving on and for a first time visit to The Split Chimp had a great time.
The Split Chimp is easy to locate along Westgate Road.
Opening hours are;
Monday & Tuesday, Closed.
Wednesday to Saturday, Open from 2pm.
Sunday, Open from Midday.
A wonderful bar,most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

Called in several times during our weekend stay, made to feel welcome & had some great beers. Served by Matt who suggested different beers to try.
We’ll certainly be back on our next trip

What a lovely micro pub
Sep. 2021 • Family
What a lovely little find.
They had a different array of music playing that wasn't too loud, but comfortable.
We had a lovely cocktail of spiced rum and rhubarb cider, called a Vanilla Nice. They were blooming lush. A round of 3 drinks cost £13.50.
Lovely quirky place, if you love ales and different guest beers, definitely worth a visit.

No dogs
Aug. 2021 • Friends
Why would a small pub on the seafront stop dogs going inside. It’s a spit and sawdust pub with no soft furnishings. Numerous dog owners have used the pub for years and apparently “because the owner is sick of mopping up dog piss” they alienate their core customer. No worries we’ll go to dog friendly Left Luggage.

Top Micro-Pub In Newcastle.
Aug. 2021 • Friends
The Split Chimp is a superb micro-pub that offers a great range of beers and was one of Newcastle's first micro-pub's.
Located on Westgate Road and housed in a railway arch'this superb micro-pub has a great interior with a ground floor area and a superb first floor seating area.This great micro-pub serves superb beers and is one of three Split Chimp micro-pub's which are located in Newcastle'Whitley Bay and also Seaton Delaval.
When we visited here on Sunday this place was rather busy so we sat upstairs and we ordered a couple of beers which where an excellent ale from the Three Kings brewery which were superb and well priced.
This is a superb micro-pub and one we will visit again as I liked the atmosphere in this superb micro-pub and there beer range is superb.Very easy to get to from High Level Bridge North East bus stop you walk along Westgate road.

What a find!
Jul. 2021 • Friends
This is my favourite pub in Newcastle. The choice of beers, real ales and ciders ate unbelievable. The decor is funky. The music even better and the prices are reasonable. What's not to like! Try and keep me away! I don't think so!

Poor service and rude staff at Whitley Bay
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Whitley Bay pub has totally gone down in my estimation! Totally disappointed with the guy who was serving tonight! We’ve been here several times as well as the one in Newcastle and had actually come from the newly opened Bar in Seaton Delaval. We had a drink each and decided to stay for another but when we went to the bar the barman ( not the usual guy) said they were finished serving. No notice given. When we enquired why he was really rude and offhand saying that as he lives in Gateshead they were closing so he could get home. We then asked why he hadn’t called last orders but he walked away and ignored us ! Again we asked the question to which he flippantly replied “ I could have and maybe I should have but we don’t have to!” What absolutely disgraceful behaviour.

Quick pint in town
May 2021 • Friends
Returned after a) an absence from the city due to covid restrictions b) after a while from visiting the Split Chimp (I’m curious to where the name originated!)

Anyways, I digress, as we entered Matt came to the door and invited us in and asked if we could ‘check in’ - then introduced us to the bar and where was good to sit.

One of my all time favourites was on (Jaipur) - pint was clean as a whistle. Pub clean and felt safe and had a nice buzz about it.

After an bit of a hiatus from the chimp looking forward to going back.
