I went there for a work reunion, and had been warned that as Newcastle were playing Man U at home to steer clear until after the mass departure for the kick-off. There were then very few customers remaining. My first choice of real ale was “not on yet” - so why display the pump clip and have it on a... More

This pub/bar/restaurant is part of the Wetherspoon-chain. The building is beautiful both from the outside and the inside. The menu is what Wetherspoons have, a little of each. We took the 2 for 1 choice and it tasted good. There is Another Wetherspoons on Westgate not far away and one on Quayside as well.

It's great this pub, sweeping staircase, preservd rooms, great furnishings - oh and it's a pub that sells food and drink - bonus. You can't go wrong with a Wetherspoons pub anyway but this one is special and worth a visit.

Probably the most characteristic and intriguing Wetherspoons I've been in for a drink. Has 3 bars and a warren of different rooms to drink and dine. Also, had a wide selection of beers.

We always visit here as soon as we arrive in Newcastle. It's a lovely building, plenty of room and very central. There are always good drinks offers on and are so much cheaper than some other fancy bars just along from there. It could do with some decoration and TLC but still worth a visit.
