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.

A pretty good Wetherspoon's. The decor inside is very posh, more akin to a hotel than a bar! The food is also good, and they tend to have better drinks stock than the nearby Mile Castle Wetherspoon's, which doesn't do guest ciders and has less ales, plus less of the specialty beers and wines. It's quieter than the other bar,... More

I always try to visit this when I'm up in Newcastle for work, it's a beautifully restored building with various bars on two floors. The food is the usual good value JD food, and they have a good selection of beers, and seem to make an effort to get local ales in. I enjoy eating in the bar upstairs, and... More

This is a building worth wandering around - it is enormous with very high ceilings and a splendid staircase to the first floor. I liked the family room which is the only room to allow children in and on our visit was an oasis from the left hand downstairs bar where the Arsenal supporters were making their presence heard whilst...
