“Admittedly great building...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

But particularly in the back room it can be like drinking in a huge toilet. No music as such even in the background and a mecca for the stag and hen dos particularly early on.

Much better bars in town

“Superb building with JD Wetherspoons value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

This is the best of all the JD Wetherspoons pubs in Newcastle. Lively sports bar atmosphere downstairs, more relaxed and elegant upstairs. Very friendly and efficient staff. Great food, and great value drinks in a spectacular setting. Thursday night is curry night - a pint and a curry (chosen from a long list) for just £5.49 - it even comes with chutney, two popadoms and a naan. Bargain!

“Glorious building for a pint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2010

We visited Wetherspoons in The Union Rooms and it was superb. Upstairs the views down onto Westgate road are great and to sit in a cofy sofa and eat a good value lunch in such a building almost felt a privilege. The toilets are very good . A grat conversion the this impressive building.
