An irreverent pub crawl through Newcastle upon Tyne - still officially the eighth best party city in the world! Meet the Burglar's Dog. He's angry and rude, he's got four legs and an abysmal hangover. His unique guide to drinking in Newcastle contains bleary-eyed reviews of more than 150 of the city's best and worst pubs, plus furry-tongued features on stag and hen weekends, pub DJs, toilet attendants, and other things that get up his snout. An acerbic drinking companion, the Burglar's Dog cocks his leg at pub mediocrity. No target is too soft, no gripe too petty, no insult too cruel.This book is essential reading for anyone who has yet to find something even remotely 'to die for' behind the glittering facade of a luxury lounge bar. It is now revised and updated to include new pubs and features! "I can honestly say that this updated book may be one of the best updated books I've ever been asked to write yet another unsolicited testimonial for, without actually bothering to read it, once again. An absolutely wonderful read for those who can be arsed with it. Not having read it I wouldn't know, obviously. Brilliant stuff all the same. Probably."
